Death Waltz in Vienna is a story of love, honor and intrigue, a wonderful historical novel based in Vienna prior to WW1. It is a novel well worth reading. I highly recommend it.
An impoverished captain from an aristocratic family is framed and given a week to prove his innocence. If not, he must kill himself. Captain Von Falkenburg wants to live, he's just fallen in love, and he determines to find out who set him up and why. He hasn't a clue, but he follows a string of minor hunches. His hunt takes him into both the rich and the seamy sides of Vienna. A grim view of Franz-Joseph in his waning years, an emperor who worked sixteen hours a day to rule his motley people, and who struggled to arrest the approaching demise of his empire. The final two scenes, high stakes baccarat and a duel, had me racing through the pages.
However, the writing verges on dry, is repetitious, disjointed in places, and goes on for too long. Von Falkenb'''urg is a cold and distant character. While I shared his urgency to solve the mystery and absolve himself from blame, I never felt a gripping concern for his fate.
