Summary
Razumov is a university student of uncertain -- possibly noble -- parentage, who dreams of making his way in the academic world. But his solitary, industrious existence in St Petersburg is shattered by the appearance of his fellow student, the revolutionary terrorist Victor Haldin. Thrust into a world of state politics and espionage, Razumov is also brought into contact with Haldin's trusting sister Nathalie in Geneva. When he falls in love with her he becomes caught in a tragic web and finds his identity torn apart. Exploring the conflict between East and west, this is a powerful and profound story of tyranny, guilt, loyalty and betrayal
