Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A so-so serial killer story line mars British author Tallis's fifth novel pairing Viennese psychoanalyst Max Liebermann and Det. Insp. Oskar Rheinhardt (after 2010's Vienna Secrets). When someone drives a hatpin into the brain of a 19-year-old artist's model, Adele Zeiler, Liebermann, a colleague of Sigmund Freud, helps with the murder inquiry. Zeiler is but the first victim of a sick individual who appears to carry out his precise executions as part of a perverse sexual ritual. With the killings causing a panic in Vienna, Rheinhardt's boss is impatient for results even before the Austrian emperor expresses frustration that the crimes remain unsolved. The two companionable main characters, who share a love for music, will remind Patrick O'Brian fans of Aubrey and Maturin, but the few less-than-shocking twists aren't enough to distinguish this from the many serial killer historicals that have tried to repeat the success of Caleb Carr's The Alienist.

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Perhaps one of the best, if not the best, of Tallis� Max Liebermann books, the latest in the series featuring the Viennese psychoanalyst and his friend, detective Oskar Rheinhardt, is a gripping read. Set in turn-of-the-century Vienna, the story not only provides a glimpse of Austrian politics, society, music, literature, and customs at the time but also gives a keen insight into the early development of Freudian psychoanalysis. The most compelling feature of the book, however, is the plot. A sadistic murderer is on the loose in Vienna, targeting young women and killing them with a hatpin inserted into the brain stem. With the gutter press providing salacious details of the killings and inciting panic and fear among Vienna�s citizens, Rheinhardt is under extreme pressure to find the killer. Frustrated at the lack of progress, he consults his friend Liebermann, whose psychological expertise reveals a link between one of his current patients� obsession with sex and death and the modus operandi of the savage killer. With numerous unexpected plot twists, captivating characters, intriguing intellectual interplay between Rheinhardt and Liebermann, and masterful writing, this is a must-read for all mystery buffs. --Emily Melton
