• "Smart detection and a mouthwatering view of Viennese cafe society ... good prospects for the Liebermann series, of which this is book number one"

    Literary Review
  • "An unusual and excellent murder mystery"

    Bernard Knight, former home office pathologist
  • "Frank Tallis's new max Liebermann series is off to a flying start with its location, a turn-of-the-20th-century Vienna torn between mysticism and rationalism, liberalism and anti-Semitism... a cracker."
