Description
(Finalist for the 2012 Edgar Award) A sexual predator is at large on the streets of Imperial Vienna, and Inspector Reinhardt realizes immediately that Max Liebermann's help is required, in this fifth mystery in the series. The evidence indicates that the killer is no ordinary "lust murderer," and his young female victims have been slain with an almost undetectable weapon, a hat pin. Max must employ the latest revelations of psychoanalysis to journey into uncharted regions of the human mind. Meanwhile the doctor must continue to tend to his patients, including a man who claims to have seen his double—the doppelgänger of Germanic folklore, believed to be an omen of death—while struggling with his own unethical desires. Frank Tallis, himself a clinical psychologist as well as a writer of first-rate literate suspense, whisks us back to Europe at the turn of the 20th century, when new theories about the workings of the mind are taking shape, and scientific methods of investigation are employed under flickering gaslight.

"Tallis's writing still has the richness of literary fiction. And, as ever, it is the measured accretion of detail and atmosphere that really sells Tallis's charged narrative."—Independent (London)
