Detective Inspector Oskar Reinhardt finds that young women are being slain in an unnerving—and ingenious—manner, with a small, almost undetectable, hat pin. For Dr. Max Liebermann, the killer is unique in the annals of psychopathology, one who murders in the midst of consensual love. Is the culprit a patient, one who swears he has a double, a shadow figure that is far more forward (in fact, indecent) with women? As danger mounts, Liebermann must find the answer while struggling with his own forbidden desire for a female patient. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “The best of Tallis’s Max Liebermann books…The story not only provides a glimpse of Austrian politics, society, music, and literature 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…With numerous unexpected plot twists, captivating characters, intriguing intellectual interplay between Reinhardt and Liebermann, and masterful writing, this is a must-read for all mystery buffs.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kenneth Fredette | 2/17/2014

    " I'm baffled this was the next book and Max was engaged to Amelia in the book before this! What do I think about this? He is in love, that's for sure. The crimes are solved by Max and Rheinhardt, with Max taking the lead. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Carolyn Crocker | 2/15/2014

    " This series just gets better and better. This outing focuses on turn-of-the-century Vienna's preoccupation with sex and death. Multiple homicides, a patient's pathology and cameo appearances by Freud and Mahler mingle seamlessly with art, music, architecture and pastries foreshadowing the tragic century to come. "

    " Fun easy summer beach read! Plus plenty of German phrases to keep me happy "

    " Well, I love this series because Tallis has interesting characters and creates a fascinating view of Vienna. The atmosphere is rich with music, desserts, Austrian politics, pre-WWII anti-semitism, Freud and early psychoanalysis. This particular book is a little weak in the mystery plot, but still compelling enough due to the use of analysis/dream theory to solve the cases. Definitely worth a read...but start at the beginning of the series! "
