Let David Lynn Golemon thrill you with Primeval from the magnificent Event Group series.
A RACE TO FIND THE TREASURE OF THE LAST CZAR HAS UNCOVERED AN ANCIENT EVIL
When Czar Nicholas II was executed with his family it brought Russia's Romanov dynasty to an end. But some believed that the Czar's children, Alexei and Anastasia, survived the slaughter and escaped with the royal treasury.
One hundred years later, a battered old journal turns up in a second-hand bookshop that appears to date back to the night of the execution. Inside are clues, not only to the fate of the Czar's children, but also to the location of the Romanov's treasure.
Major Jack Collins of the Event Group, a top secret agency tasked dedicated to revealing the truth about history's greatest myths and legends, follows the lead deep into Russia's vast, unexplored wilderness where he and his team are soon confronted by a terrifying, even more incredible secret . . .

Golemon's fanciful fifth Event Group thriller (after Leviathan) offers an alternative view of what happened to Nicholas II and his family at Ekaterinburg in 1918. After two of the last Russian czar's children, Anastasia and Alexei, survive and escape to Canada, the story leaps forward to 1962, when a secret American plane on a mission to decapitate the Soviet leadership crashes near Ekaterinburg. In the present, vicious Russian gangsters begin a bloody search for the legendary "Twins" of Peter the Great, "twin diamonds the size of ostrich eggs." When the gangsters abduct CIA agent Lynn Simpson, they pay the price for being unaware that she's the sister of series hero Col. Jack Collins of the Event Group, a shadowy U.S. government agency that specializes in bizarre assignments. Collins and the team he leads to rescue Simpson encounter trigger-happy bad guys, Quebec separatists plotting a coup, and intelligent bigfoot humanoids. Feeble attempts at realism don't redeem the silly plot.
