Volume Two of The Liebermann Papers
In the grip of a Siberian winter in 1902, a serial killer in Vienna embarks upon a bizarre campaign of murder. Vicious mutilation, a penchant for arcane symbols, and a seemingly random choice of victim are his most distinctive peculiarities. Detective Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt summons a young disciple of Freud – his friend Dr Max Liebermann – to assist him with the case. The investigation draws them into the sphere of Vienna's secret societies. At first, the killer's mind seems impenetrable – his behaviour and cryptic clues impervious to psychoanalytic interpretation; however, gradually, it becomes apparent that an extraordinary and shocking rationale underlies his actions ... Against this backdrop of mystery and terror, Liebermann struggles with his own demons.

'Frank Tallis ... manages to dip the twists and turns of expertly crafted crimes into meticulous chronicles of turn-of-the-century-culture, without losing the thrill of the guessing game'
