Summary
"[An] elegant historical mystery . . . stylishly presented and intelligently resolved" set at the dawn of psychoanalysis ( The New York Times Book Review ). In Vienna at the turn of the twentieth century, Max Liebermann, a contemporary of Sigmund Freud's, is at the forefront of psychoanalysis, practicing the controversial new science with all the skill of a master detective. Every dream, inflection, or slip of tongue in his "hysterical" patients has meaning and reveals some hidden truth. When beautiful medium Charlotte Löwenstein dies under extraordinary circumstances, Max's good friend, Detective Oskar Rheinhardt, calls for his expert assistance. Her body has been found in a room that can only be locked from the inside. She's been shot through the heart, but there's no gun and absolutely no trace of a bullet. All signs point to a supernatural killer, but Liebermann the scientist is not so easily convinced. Especially when one of Charlotte's clients is also found in a locked room—this time bludgeoned to death. Unfolding in the Vienna of Klimt and Mahler, a time of unprecedented activity in the worlds of philosophy, science, and art, A Death in Vienna is "an engrossing portrait of a legendary period as well as a brain teaser of startling perplexity" ( Chicago Tribune )
