A few weeks ago, I was interviewed in relation to my Rasputin book by Ann Marie Ackermann. She is a former U. S. criminal and medical law attorney, now turned author.

I hope you will enjoy the interview that appears on her blog: https://www.annmarieackermann.com/new-evidence-on-rasputins-murder/

some more errata and comments:
me page 138 should be for not force and page 134 should be upcoming books 2016

page 31 you mention GD NNs children I assume you mean GD NN the elder since the younger didn't have any children
page 50 Beletsky in exile Stephen Beletsky was shot by the Cheka in September 1918
pages 250-1 Purichkevich 3 shots fired according to the writing of Massad Ayoob who is a forensics expert has wrote a number of books, has numerous videos on youtube and analysis gunfights ect. for Purichkevich to get the number of shots he fired wrong is commen Ayoob points out that many police officers and civilians involved in shootings often can't remember how many shots they fired. As for missing Rasputin there are police officers who were excellent shots have better pistols with better sights and a few have missed close range suspects in broad daylight in their first gunfights
page 317 General Ruzski at Stavka he was at Pskov
page 350 General Bartov 1st Caucasian Cavalry division he was the commander of the I Caucasus Corps at this time

Glad to be of help>

I should also like to point out that Ayoob and others mention accounts where the suspect is shot 5 or 6 times with a 38 Spl or several times with a 9mm and the suspect still is able to do serious harm or kill the person who shot him before he dies.

page 317 General Ruzski at Stavka he was at Pskov

Just to make it clear, in Russian, the word "Stavka" = military headquarters.

As written 4 lines down @ p 317, I did say:

"... the imperial train was detained and stood isolated on a railway track outside of Pskov". 

Rodzianko did indeed contact General  Ruzskii at [his] Stavka!

and @ p 318:

"Guchkov and Shulgin arrived in Pskov "

Given the interest expressed by you and many others over the past two or so years, I am seriously considering the publication of a new edition.
