Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Frank Tallis has surged to the front of the field riding his dark horse, Vienna in the last days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire…While it’s always a delight to visit the ballrooms where Strauss is played and the opera house where Mahler is rehearsing and the coffeehouses where ideas are devoured mit Schlag, this smart series has far more to offer than decorative charm.” New York Times Book Review
“Tallis’s singular achievement is to bring vividly to life many of the glories and dangers of a great city at a crucial moment in its history…Immensely satisfying…The author delights us with rich, often gorgeous prose…[He] has an exceptional ability to move seamlessly among varied plot elements, characters, and emotions…If you’re looking for the best in popular fiction, it’s well worth seeking out.” Washington Post
“Another immensely satisfying novel in Frank Tallis’ intelligent and subtle Dr. Liebermann/Inspector Rheinhardt series…Dense, engrossing…A fine adventure.” Boston Globe
“St. Florian’s Military Academy outside Vienna serves as the forbidding backdrop for Tallis’s stellar third historical to feature Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt and Dr. Max Liebermann…Several late twists lead to a startling resolution of this compelling tale.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“What is basically a murder mystery becomes something quite extraordinary as Tallis skillfully weaves in the politics, history, music, and social customs of turn-of-the-century Vienna. Another outstanding entry in an erudite and mesmerizing series; a must for historical-mystery devotees.” Booklist (starred review)
