Has anyone ever heard of this book? ^^ I found it while browsing Ebay. I don't recognize the author, and since I can't read Russian, I am unable to pick up any clues from the photos...sounds interesting!

Hi Abby,

This book follows up from volume I (which is Sokolov's forensic investigation in Yekaterinburg). It embellishes and expands Sokolov's report, offering numerous personilzed somewhat controversial opinions.

General Miikhail Detericks directed Nikolai Sokolov to investigate the crime scenes. 

If you are unable to read Russian, then why bother with this publication?  ???

Hey Belochka, thanks for the response. That makes sense. I knew the name Dietrich sounded familiar from somewhere, lol. I wasn't going to buy the book. I just saw it and was curious.

You're welcome Abby!

The seller is seeking way too much for an old publication which maybe abridged and is certainly not rare!

Best regards,

Margarita  :)
