Leningrad, Russia, 1968. Alexander Karpenko is no ordinary
child, and from an early age, it is clear he is destined to
lead his countrymen. But when his father is assassinated by
the KGB for defying the state, he and his mother will have
to escape from Russia if they hope to survive. At the docks,
they are confronted with an irreversible choice: should they
board a container ship bound for America, or Great Britain?
Alexander leaves that choice to the toss of a coin . . .
In a single moment, a double twist decides Alexander’s
future. During an epic tale of fate and fortune, spanning
two continents and thirty years, we follow his triumphs and
defeats as he struggles as an immigrant to conquer his new
world. As this unique story unfolds, Alexander comes to
realize where his destiny lies, and accepts that he must
face the past he left behind in Russia.
With a final twist that will shock even his most ardent
fans, this is #1 New York Times bestseller Jeffrey
Archer’s most ambitious and creative work since Kane and
