The Time of Murder at Mayerling (Nicholas Segalla series, Book 3): A thrilling mystery from 19th century Vienna by Paul Doherty

The third novel in Paul Doherty's Nicholas Segalla series: a shadowy scholar travels through time solving the past's greatest mysteries.


Vienna, 1889. Glittering entertainments hide a world of sinister political intrigue at the court of the Hapsburgs. But this protected bubble explodes when horrifying news comes to light that the heir to the throne, the handsome Archduke Rudolph, shot his mistress before turning the gun on himself at the imperial hunting lodge at Mayerling. Is there more to the story than meets the eye? Rumours of foul play soon began to surface as Vetsera's body is hurriedly buried in secrecy and the government suppress any inquiry. Scholar Nicholas Segalla is forced to risk his own life and uncover the truth behind the spectacular cover-up as he attempts to expose a murderer with a very surprising connection to the doomed prince.
