Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mortal Mischief: (Liebermann Papers 1) (Kindle Edition)
Although the outline of this story follows the classic murder mystery structure (clever outsider helping dutiful policeman using deduction, second murder, confrontation of suspect etc.) the setting lifts this above the run of the mill. Imperial Vienna, classical music, sounds and aromas of streets and coffee shops are all well described. The dawning of psychoanalysis , women's place in the world and the rising tension of successful Jewry provide depth and interest to the background and sub plots. I found this a real treat beyond the thrill of the mystery.
