Item Description...
The late-night visit of a Russian Orthodox priest draws Yuri Nevsky into a struggle by would-be leaders of post-Soviet Russia to possess a treasure cache created for Czar Nicholas II to use in an exile that never came. At once he is caught up in a lethal web with strands stretching from Imperial Russia, to Paris in the '20s, Nazi-held Odessa in 1942, and the Kirgiz Steppe in 1952. Scheming, betrayals, tangled cross-purposes, and murders in the past and present confuse the hunt and threaten to cost him his life. If he's to survive and avenge the murder of the gentle priest, he must summon up all his cunning to solve the mystery of the three treasure cubes before the contenders gather to plunder the final one marked Anastasia Nikolayevna!

Nevsky is Back, Finally!  Oct 5, 2007
I'm a big fan of Dimitri Gat's original Nevsky books (you can still get them on this site, even though they're out of print) and it's great to have Nevsky back, more mature and still savvy, well-read and embedded in the Russian community of Pittsburgh. Two of Gat's strengths have always been the ability to craft interesting, complex characters and to evoke the feel of a place through well-chosen detail. He equals his past accomplishments with the Romanov Cache and delights the reader with an intricate plot that continues to surprise until the very last. I won't be too much of a spoiler, but the view into Russia's recent past and present, the intermingling of church, state and greed and the reappearance of my favorite character, smart and beautiful Charity Day, make this an excellent read. Be prepared to set aside a day to read it, though, because the Romanov Cache doesn't lend itself to being put down and picked back up again. The many characters and their various connections can be confusing if you are away from them for too long. I highly recommend this as a satisfying journey to Russia and back.

The Best Nevsky Yet  Jan 28, 2007
As one of Dimitri Gat's enduring fans I was so glad to find this latest adventure of his attractive Russian-American hero, Yuri Nevsky. Ever since the first Nevsky book, Nevsky's Return, I've been watching for Gat's work, and The Romanov Cache does not disappoint. It has all the features of the author's unique style, a well-plotted story sustained by an intriguing mystery.

There is also lots of action, but above all an in-depth knowledge of the USA's Russian-American community. Gat's evocation of that culture--its ways of thinking, feeling, loving and sometimes fighting--buoys his narrative along and gives it the unmistakable zest of borscht and bagels.

Gat writes like an master. His sentences are taught, well crafted and rich with unexpected similes and metaphors. I especially liked the way "chill scampered like an icy spider" up Nevsky's spine and, at an intimate moment, how "zippers whispered." A villain has "an air of ambiguity and lightheartedness."

It's a terrific story, in other words, with an sudden plot twist at the end. Does Nevsky discover the meaning of the Romanov Cache? The answer is both yes and no, and you'll have fun finding out why.

As a writer Dimitri Gat is a lover of wry detail, beautifully crafted concrete sentences, and intriguing plot, all merged in sufficient organized detail in THE ROMANOV CACHE that the result is the compelling illusion of reality, stirring interest once again in the storied and highly catastrophic Romanov family difficulties at the time of the Russian Revolution of 1917. The novel deals with time subsequent to the Revolution, however -- it concerns itself with the vast Romanov treasure, accumulated by the reigning family over a period of some four hundred years, estimated to be worth over forty billions of dollars at the time of the Revolution, with intriguing speculation about what happened to the treasure and whether any of it will ever be actually located. And the details of the novel suggest that the cache may in fact be hidden in a rural area somewhere near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

It is a pleasure to read such fiction. Gat, who knows what it is to be Russian, is a lover of the little phrases that suggest the gutteral conclusion that life is nothing if it is not endured, vodka is man's brother, and the church and the government are to be feared,even silently cursed.

Yuri Nevsky, a Pittsburgh private detective, has inadvertantly become involved in the search for the Romanov cache, and he and his consort, Charity Day, find themselves deep in the intrigue that suggests that the cache might in fact be found in the area. What follows, in increasingly complicated, yet completely believable scenes, is the culmination of the search for the cache, presented to the reader with the ring of truth.

THE ROMANOV CACHE is one of those carefully constructed novels that are a tribute to compelling, "What if . . . " tales, a page turner to be sure, that grows in intensity in the action of the last half of the book. It is an interesting read, made moreso because all of it really could have happened.

We could use more of such fiction.
Review by Eugen M. Bacon, TCM Reviews  Oct 8, 2006

Bearing such a fascinating title and a predominantly Russian setting, a quotient of The Romanov Cache casually reminds of John Le Carre. Author Dimitri Gat displays fine attention to plot and detail to write a sound story that begins in 138 Morland, Pittsburg. A dying priest's confession awakens ghosts that unsettle more than the past. As corpses fall in his wake, Yuri Nevsky realizes that he would need more than luck to survive the future. He struggles with the wound of his father's murder, the shock of assassinations around him, in order to dig into something dark and deep, a secret men and women are willing to die for in order to keep rather than disclose it.

... the tale relays well political volatility in a voracious hunt for a Czar's buried treasure. From Pittsburg to Moscow, from St Petersburg to Zurich, a notable cast (including one Alessya Harsky, a scorned woman with plentiful vengeance) slowly, then surely, evolves to spike curiosity in the saga.

...The author's style is organized, engaging even with standout documentation such as filed Nazi memos, excerpts from forgotten log books, and a peasant's unsent letter to his master. The latter is a record that contains much character, frivolity of language and body in itself to unveil much of the novel's core, the writer's talent, and Sergei Nevsky's role in The Romanov Cache. Dustings of charmed little phrases leap throughout the book to stamp the author's sense of humor and specks of literary flare.
