A strange telegram lures fourteen-year-old Amy Cahill and her younger brother, Dan, deep into Russia and away from the only trustworthy adult they know. Signed with the initials NRR, the telegram launches a race to uncover a treasure stolen by the Nazis and the truth about the murder of the last Russian royal family. All too soon, the treasure hunt starts to smell like a Lucian trap.

      Amy and Dan head to Russia without their guardian,Nellie, and follow the Grand Dutchess Anastasia. They are getting mysterious notes from someone named NRR who they don't know if they can trust. They start working with the Holts and find information on Alexei and Anastasia who seem to have gotten special healing abilites from Rasputin. This book is really shocking and mysterious, and Amy and Dan are close to finding out the truth about their parents.
