Unusual for Verne, this is a straight adventure story. Michael is sent by the Czar to warn the governor of Irkutsk of the presence of a traitor on his staff. On the Trans-Siberian railway Michael finds a wife. Unfortunately, at least in this translation, the book is very poorly written. The illustrations are worth seeing.
