On June 3, 1943, two bodies are discovered at the Great Stone
Bridge, in the heart of Moscow. They are the teenage offspring of
two of Stalin's favourites: Volodya Shakhurin, the son of the
People's Commissar for the Aviation Industry, and the stunningly
beautiful Nina Umanskaya, 15 years of age, the daughter of the
former Soviet ambassador to the USA. By all accounts, the former
shot the latter before turning the gun on himself. The Stone Bridge
is a detailed historical reconstruction of the Stalinist era as
seen through one man's seven-year investigation into the case of
the 'young wolves' - a Nazi-inspired secret society inside an elite
Kremlin school. Based on a true story, The Stone Bridge resurrects
actual historical figures and brings to light official documents
from NKVD case files. The book shines the spotlight on a past with
which the country has never properly come to terms, and which
therefore - tragically - has a poisonous effect on present-day
