THE CASE OF COMRADE TULAYEV is his novelistic expose about how The Great Terror affected the lives of Soviet citizens of all kinds. The ease with which Stalin's "rivals" were framed and executed is almost beyond belief. Fortunately we have Robert Conquest's superb THE GREAT TERROR to corroborate Serge's vision in excruciating detail. Get this from a library! The case of Comrade Tulayev, a novel.. [Victor Serge] -- Tragedy of a rigged trial in Soviet Russia, and the events that lead to it.

Victor Serge's The Case of Comrade Tulayev is a vivid study of the great purges and the workings of Stalin's security system.

  One cold Moscow night, Comrade Tulayev, a high government official, is shot dead on the street, and the search for the killer begins. In this panoramic vision of the Soviet Great Terror, the investigation leads all over the world, netting a whole series of suspects whose only connection is their innocence—at least of the crime of which they stand accused. The Case of Comrade Tulayev is gritty and rough, saturated in the squalor of Moscow life; but it also pulses with lyrical flights that take us up into the stars, which represent for Serge the regenerative, transformative moments the History promises but has yet to deliver.
