Riassunto: On December 16, 1916, Prince Felix Youssoupov and a group of conspirators, in what was then considered to be a patriotic act, murdered Grigori Rasputin. Now, nearly 80 years later, the events surrounding the assassination continue to provoke speculation. In "The Man Who Killed Rasputin", a critically acclaimed author uncovers the truth behind the murder of one of Russia's most notorious figures of photos .
From Booklist: The butler didn't do it, the scion of one of Russia's most noble families did it--murder the confidante of the czarina, the notorious Rasputin, that is. Prince Felix Youssoupov was one of the spoiled darlings of prerevolutionary St. Petersburg society, a hedonist who stumbled from one party to another. King's popular biography makes easy, compelling reading, beginning with an account of the strange life of Gregory Rasputin, who, because of his unexplained ability to control the symptoms of the czarevitch's hemophilia, came to exert enormous influence over the czarina. Rasputin grew increasingly unpopular among the high-born in the Russian capital. Enter Prince Felix, who, in his own mind, was rising to the occasion, and, with co-conspirators, hatched an assassination scheme. The effects of the deed and Youssoupov's life after the revolution are fully explored in this book general readers of Russian history will enjoy. Brad Hooper
