Glagoslav Releases an Award-Winning Historical Thriller "The Stone Bridge" by Alexander Terekhov

"The Stone Bridge" is a detailed historical reconstruction of the Stalinist era as seen through one manís seven-year investigation into the case of the "wolves' cubs"' Ė a Nazi-inspired secret society inside an elite Kremlin school.

London, United Kingdom, March 29, 2014 --(PR.com)-- On June 3, 1943 at the Great Stone Bridge in Moscow a tragedy took place that shocked the political elite of that time and became the starting point of an investigation into other historical and political facts. Nina Umanskaya, the beautiful 14-year-old daughter of the former Soviet ambassador to the USA, was murdered by her classmate and admirer, Volodya Shakhurin, son of the People's Commissar for the Aviation Industry. After that the young man shot himself.

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 Russia.

This English edition of the novel features unique historical photographs, including archive documents previously forbidden for publication. Full collection of The Stone Bridge photographs can be found on a special websitewww.books.glagoslav.com/the-stone-bridge dedicated to the novel.

About the author: A professional journalist, Alexander Terekhov has contributed to Ogonek, a top Russian magazine, and worked for the editorial teams of various publications. During his time at the newspaper Top Secret, Terekhov came across an item about two youngsters who perished in 1943 at the Stone Bridge in Moscow. He first featured the story in one of his short works, but later on embarked on a quest for the truth that lasted several years. The outcome of Terekhov’s research provided the premise for his novel "The Stone Bridge," eventually winning him the Big Book Award in 2009. Alexander Terekhov is known outside Russian for his sharp, topical satire. He has published several novels and short stories, which have been translated into English, French, German and other languages.
