Vienna, 1902: a beautiful medium has been found shot dead, and Dr Max Liebermann, a young disciple of Sigmund Freud, is called upon to help his friend Detective Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt investigate her death. The room containing the body has been locked from the inside, and a cryptic note suggests a malevolent supernatural power is at work. Using the new science of psychoanalysis, Liebermann probes the minds of the suspects in an attempt to unravel this bewildering crime. Download and start listening now!

    " I must admit that I was a little sceptic about this novel.... Detective novels aren't my favorite genre, but I was surprised reading the first 100 pages, because I liked the book. Not because the "mystery part", but because I liked the descriptions of early psychoanalysis, good music, the picture about Vienna at the turn of the century... It was funny to read this kind of novel after so much time... "

    " Despite the unimaginative/trite title this is good whodunit. (The original British title was Mortal Mischief which is just as bad and whey do they *DO* that?! i.e. change the title when it's published in the U.S.) Lots of "sense of place/time" and good characterization. Written by a practicing (English) clinical psychologist. The first in the Liebermann Papers series which is up to four titles so far. He has written two other novels and published nine non-fiction books on psychology prior to his foray into fiction. "

    " I loved this book! It was a great combination of mystery and science and his description of all the pastries was absolutely delicious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elpheaba | 1/15/2014

    " So Mr. Tallis really needs to stop describing the Viennese pastries that his characters are eating, I drool. Other than that this is a tightly written well developed mystery and I am looking forward to many more of Max's adventures. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel Jones | 12/14/2013

    " As someone who has a historical fiction novel (in her head if not on paper), I found the "historical" part of this novel a bit heavy-handed. A lot of Austrian pastry is eaten. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Saeed | 11/19/2013

    " Fun read that kept me turning the pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken | 11/17/2013

    " Historical mystery set in Vienna at the turn of the 20th Century; medium found murdered inside a locked room; ok "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 11/6/2013

    " A good whodunit with an interesting setting. "

    " menarik sih...tp plotnya lambat... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evelyn | 10/21/2013

    " Enjoyable tale set in Vienna in the early 1900's. I thought the main theme moved along rather slowly but I really enjoyed the side stories. There were some loose ends that I wished had been tied up but I'll just have to use my own imagination! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kishwar | 10/17/2013

    " Kept going between 3 and 4 stars for this but ended with 4 because it WAS a fun read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary G. | 9/3/2013

    " Another nice debut to a great series. I really enjoy seeing Vienna at the historical crossroads of the 20th century. "

    " Made me wish for more time in Vienna in June so I could sample all the pastries and coffees described. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharonb | 11/20/2012

    " start of a good mystery series for history and psychology lovers. It takes place in turn of the century Vienna and one of the main characters is a young psychiatrist who is an admirer of Fraud. Something different. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 10/13/2012

    " A nice change from fast paced mystery/thrillers and it kept me guessing until the end. I enjoyed the characters and the setting, Vienna, was fantastic. Can't wait to read the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. J. Arias | 7/12/2012

    " I really liked the setting and atmosphere, but I have a soft spot for Vienna. I appreciated the pace and shorter chapters for a change. There were some technical problems with the plot, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. "

    " rada garing, thriller tapi kurang greget. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha | 5/2/2011

    " this is the first book in the Max Lieberman series. like the rest, it switches points of view with each chapter highlighting all the different main characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 5/1/2011

    " This was the first in the series, I read it when it was first published. I didn't come back to Frank 'til I got my Kindle - now I've captured them all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mona | 4/29/2010

    " I had fun reading this book. It was light reading and although I enjoyed the turn of the century setting in Vienna I dont believe I will pick up the subsequent books in the series. One was enough.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 SallyJo | 4/23/2010

    " Vienesse policework mixed with the supernatural "pop culture" of the era - excellent series, fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/10/2010

    " Interesting read...included a lot of psychology and history. So many characters it got a little confusing at times, but a good read. "
