Hi Forum members,

Delighted to confirm that my fully revised work KILLING RASPUTIN: The Murder That Ended The Russian Empire, is now available in e-book format for pre-order on Amazon. The print version will be available shortly ....

My publisher's [WILDBLUE PRESS] description:


"At last a book about the so-called “Mad Monk” of Imperial Russia that lays to rest the myths and reveals the truth about one of the most controversial characters in human history while exploring the impact his murder had on a dynasty, a people, and a country.

Written in three parts, KILLING RASPUTIN begins with a biography that describes how a simple unkempt “holy man” from the wilds of Siberia became a friend of Emperor Nicholas II and his empress, Alexandra, at the most crucial moment in Russian history. Part Two examines the infamous murder of Rasputin through the lens of a “cold case” homicide investigation. And lastly, the book considers the connection between a cold-blooded assassination and the revolution that followed; a revolution that led to civil war and the rise of the Soviet Union.

Unique about this book on Rasputin, is that the author combines Russian heritage (her parents were forced out of Russia during World War II and arrived as refugees in Australia in 1948) with medical science and legal training. Nelipa relied on Russian-language sources that she translated rather than depend on the interpretations of others. Her primary sources include police documents and witness testimonies, an autopsy report, diaries, letters and memoirs written in their native language by the participants in these historic events. Secondary sources include Russian-languages newspapers and other publications from that era. The narrative is copiously referenced and augmented with photographs (including graphic forensic photographs) and other documents, some of them published here for the first time.

Step into the imperial court of a 300-year-old dynasty in its final days with one of the most fascinating characters ever to grab our imaginations, judge whether Margarita Nelipa makes her case regarding his death, and if you agree that it was “the murder that ended the Russian empire.”

Thank you for your interest,

Best regards,

Margarita Nelipa

How does it differ from the original version?
New research, new discoveries?
Please give us a brief comparison of the two books.
Thank you!

Hello Inok Nikolai,

The Rasputin book on which this one is based was published in 2010 by a boutique publisher. Despite its small print run, it attracted a keen audience including several universities and schools who continued to express interest in the now out-of-print book. During the intervening period, I acquired several new archival files, documents (letters and telegrams), obtained new photographs and a clearer set of forensic police photos, some which have never been published elsewhere. Though the content is largely similar, the book presents strengthened evidence regarding the conduct of this murder and its aftermath. I also took the opportunity to correct a few minor errors and remove some extraneous material. My updated manuscript was recently accepted for publication by a large publishing house (Wild Blue Press) in the U.S., which will enable the truth about Rasputin and the manner of his death, to receive a wider audience.

Hope this helps,

Best regards,

Margarita Nelipa

Spasibo!
That sort of explanation is precisely what I (and, no doubt, others) had in mind.

I think I'm gonna buy your book, Margarita, as it looks pretty interesting. It's been a few years since I wanted to do it but it was always "out of stock" on Amazon. I'm delighted to see it's been reprinted, and with new infos inside :)
After death, there is not death, but life.
