Review: Tea with Rasputin

Tea with Rasputin

THRILLER

by Rolf Richardson

It’s 1992 and during a routine layover in Anchorage Alaska, Greg Wilton (a First Officer with British World Airways) disappears without trace. Back at airline HQ near Heathrow, Mr Halford, Head of Security, is tasked with finding someone to investigate Greg’s case. His team are working to capacity and no one can be spared. So he scrapes the bottom of the barrel and assigns recent recruit, Terry Jackson to the investigation. Fresh out of training school and awaiting his first posting, Terry flies to Alaska, brimming with enthusiasm at being trusted with such a mission. There he discovers Wilton rented a small plane while on his layover and both are now missing. His last contact appeared to be with Coral, a waitress at the crew watering hole, The Golden Nugget, so with her help Terry sets out to find the missing airman. Their quest appears to be hopeless, because Alaska is huge, but they do not give up. The action moves to Hong Kong, Miami, Oxford (England) and finally St. Petersburg for Tea with Rasputin, a ten year globe-trotting saga with many twists and turns. Join Terry in his investigation, where intrigue, suspense, mystery, humour and even a little romance lie in wait.

REVIEW

3 out of 5

Tea with Rasputin is interesting. I enjoyed the world travel and intrigue of this book. I wish the pace had been a little more consistent, however. It started off a little slow for me, quickly picked up, then slowed again before picking up for the last bit. I won’t give any spoilers, but let’s say the story ended strong. This is a great book for mystery lovers (I don’t think I’d consider it a strong thriller). Overall a nice way to pass the time.
