A Death in Vienna: A Novel (Mortalis) - Frank Tallis Perhaps I'm a little biased when rating this book, as I being a psychologist the whole book felt like a series of winks and nudges to what I've studied for years. But putting that aside I have to say it's a very enjoyable novel with interesting characters, nicely paced and well thought. I get the impression the author really did his homework and put his mind into getting right the historical setting of the story. I'll most probably read the sequels.
