    The psychoanalyst Max Liebermann/detective Oskar Rheinhardt seri

    The psychoanalyst Max Liebermann/detective Oskar Rheinhardt series continues in old Vienna with the discovery of a renowned opera singer dead, an apparent suicide. Except that the detective doesn’t like the way she is lying on a rug. It seems too neat. So he continues to look into the matter, and the autopsy confirms his suspicion: she was murdered.

    In the course of their investigations, Max (and the author) are given many opportunities to exhibit their interest in music, including visits to the Court Opera and close association with Director Gustav Mahler. More attention is paid to how Mahler conducts the orchestra and performers than to a couple of murders. But then, perhaps, it is of more interest than that of the demised characters.

    The time is prior to World War I, and the background of the closing days of the Hapsburg monarchy and the rise of anti-Semitism in Viennese politics is graphically portrayed. And, of course, Sigmund Freud and his theories (and jokes) make their usual appearance. And could it be: Can Max and Amelia finally get together? Read the novel and find out.

    Somehow, “Death and the Maiden” is not as satisfying as the preceding entries in the series. But it is still an interesting read, and it is recommended.

    Great read!

    Frank Tallis elevates the mystery genre to riveting literature with complex characters, intricate plot, vivid historical background, deep insight into human character and relfection on the forces reshaping Europe at the turn of the 19th century Vienna. Highly recommended!
