Hutchinson, London - first UK edition, 1989. Hardcover, 9½" x 6¼", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. Some pencil underlining of text. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Black cloth-bound boards with gold title to spine, list of Leading Characters, notes, bibliography, and index. On 1st December 1934, a gunman shot and killed Sergei Kirov, Secretary of the Central and Leningrad Party Organisation, member of the Moscow Politburo and heir apparent to Josef Stalin. This assassination was arguably one of the most significant crimes of the century: not only did it seal the fates of thousands of people spuriously linked to the killer, but it also eliminated the second most powerful man in Russian politics, giving Stalin free rein to dominate Soviet policy. This book is an investigative account of the circumstances and its aftermath.
