Vladimir the Russian Viking by Vladimir Volkoff( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Endowed with exceptional talents as a warrior, diplomat, and ruler--not to mention a temperament that earned him the epithet fornicator immensus in the chronicles of his contemporaries--Vladimir of Russia (960?-1015) began his career at the age of twelve as Prince of Novgorod, rising to be known as "The Red Sun." Volkoff tells Vladimir's story with gusto and humor, describing the years of conquest, violence, polygamy, and pagan ritual as the remarkable prince seized his brother's throne, expanding his rule over the whole of Russia. A shrewd, hospitable, and progressive ruler, he adopted the Christian faith from the Greeks, bringing Christianity to Russia. A "second Constantine," he was later canonized as a saint. This is the first complete biography, based on Russian, Greek, German, Arabic, and Icelandic sources. - Publisher
The turn-around by Vladimir Volkoff( Book )

Cet héritier de Graham Greene plaira, comme l'écrit Poirot-Delpech dans ##Le Monde## du 4 janvier, "aux amateurs de spiritualisme malicieux". Dans le présent roman, "fouillé et dense", l'activité littéraire et l'espionnage font l'objet d'une mise en parallèle systématique. Le lecteur se retrouve au centre d'une grande toile dont les fils multiples se nomment: littérature (la grande{), stratégie, politique, philosophie, théologie, espionnage, sociologie, etc

L'hôte du pape : roman by Vladimir Volkoff( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ilya is the uncouth, uneducated son of ardent Communist workers who becomes a war hero in the Red Army. After the war, however, he experiences a radical conversion to Christianity and becomes a priest, but also eventually a KGB general and Metropolitan of Leningrad. Captivated by the prophecy of Russia's return to Christianity contained in the appearance of the Virgin Mary to a few simple shepherds in Portugal, Ilya decides he must make overtures to the new pontiff in an effort toward ecumenical collaboration that will facilitate the fulfillment of the prophecy. When he leaves for Rome, his KGB superiors plot to have him assassinated, and the Mafia contacts involved also plot the assassination of John Paul. Dostoevsky meets Le Carré in this rich tapestry of intrigue, betrayal, heroism, and faith. L'hôte du Pape (2004) is Vladimir Volkoff's next-to-last novel and is, perhaps, his best. It combines Cold War strategizing and hints of the mysterious workings of the Holy Spirit in human affairs. Action takes place primarily in the USSR, Rome, and Portugal, and includes significant flashbacks to World War II. Volkoff takes the skimpy historical details of Pope John Paul I's mysterious death and the equally mysterious death of a Russian prelate in his arms just days before--and fleshes out the story as only a good espionage novelist could do, but with the added dimension of the role that divine providence could have been playing in these events. There is the stuff of a thriller here, but it is a serious novel written in a richly varied style that includes the brutal, coarse argot of the underworld, the allusiveness of an accomplished artist, and the soaring mysticism of the saints"--
The torturer : a novel by Vladimir Volkoff( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Torturer provides an unforgettable case study in the controversy over torture. The hero, Robert Lavilhaud (pronounced "Lavilio," he insists), is an incredibly idealistic young officer and a fiercely devout Catholic. He is devoted to the highest traditional ideals of military service and to the Grand Dream of what Algeria can become as a fully integrated, prosperous département of France. After his military service is completed, Lavilhaud plans to marry and finish his graduate studies in order to settle in French Algeria as a professor of literature. As officer in charge of a unit that is charged with interrogating insurrectionists and terrorists, he finds that circumstances overcome his convictions. At the same time, De Gaulle reneges on his earlier commitment to keep Algeria French. Loyalists like Lavilhaud, the Harkis, and the four French generals who staged a coup in opposition to De Gaulle's volte-face find themselves abandoned. Lavilhaud becomes the fall-guy in the political turmoil and ends up serving time in prison. Yet in the end, there is new hope for him in the form of a totally unexpected visitor to his prison cell. This is Vladimir Volkoff's last novel and it must have been a story very near to his heart, particularly when we reflect that he too was an intelligence officer in the Algerian War in his youth and a professor of literature before he became a well-known novelist."--
