The fourth re-release in NewSouth’s series bringing back into print all of Koning’s fiction, The Petersburg-Cannes Express is a story of Anna and Andrew, two early Socialist revolutionaries riding a train across Europe in the year 1900, attempting to catch a sly former Secret Police official. Draskovich is traveling to France to extradite their friend Sophia who shot the vacationing Russian judge who sentenced her innocent brother to the hard time that killed him. The novel is a picture of the minds of true idealists, whose attempts at violence or covert action are layered with their hearty ideas, making their tasks difficult. Equal partners in a plot that tests their relationships as lovers and coconspirators, Anna and Andrew must employ every tool that they have, especially their wits.
