The medium's body has been found in a room that can only be locked from the inside. Her body has been shot, but there's gun and absolutely trace of a bullet. On a table lies a suicide te, claiming that there is such a thing as forbidden kwledge. All signs point to a supernatural killer, but Liebermann the scientist is t 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 vel, taut with suspense and rich in historical details.
