While Hitler’s regime was known for its sinister scientists, its doctors of death, its Mengele, historically they were not the only dark forces delving into the mysteries of life and immortality. Joseph Stalin, too, would have much to pay for in the afterlife, and he would need the assistance of a soulless genius, indeed, to postpone that debt.

Dr. Nicolae Nieboska was that genius. A brilliant madman, Dr. Nieboska was provided a private laboratory in a well-guarded bunker, a limitless budget, and an endless supply of human lab rats. Stalin eventually fell, and like his predecessor Lenin, he left a well-preserved corpse. The secret he kept in that bunker disappeared and passed into legend, but that legend had started to achieve results.
