Rasputin And Crimes That Shook The World is late-into-the-night reading with a range from the macabre of murder to the tune of "Yankee Doodle" to the low-comedy history of a Paris prostitute. Here are revelations of Rasputin, saint or devil, the self-styled Monk with his mysticisms and wild court orgies; the story of Sun Yat-sen's kidnapping - a crime of London's gaslight era; the assassinations of Dollfuss and Alexander of Yugoslavia; the death of the Romanovs in the House of Special Purpose; and an astonishing set of facts about a lady named MacLeod, whose pseudonym will come as a surprise to most readers.
