In Vienna at the turn of the twentieth century, Max Liebermann 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 a mysterious and beautiful medium dies under extraordinary circumstances, Maxs good friend, Detective Oskar Rheinhardt, calls for his expert assistance. The mediums body has been found in a room that can only be locked from the inside. Her body has been shot, but theres no gun and absolutely no trace of a bullet. On a table lies a suicide note, claiming that there is such a thing as forbidden knowledge. All signs point to a supernatural killer, but Liebermann the scientist is not so easily convinced.

Set in the Vienna of Freud, Klimt, and Mahler, a time of unprecedented activity in the worlds of philosophy, science, and art, A Death in Vienna is an elegantly written novel, taut with suspense and rich in historical details.
