Frank Tallis Fatal Lies 1 The baroque ballroom was filled with flowers. Beneath three radiant chandeliers more than a hundred couples were rotating in near-perfect synchrony. The men were dressed in black tails, pique shirts, and white gloves, the women in gowns of tulle and crepe de chine. On a raised platform a small orchestra was playing Strauss's Rosen aus iem Suien, and when the waltz king's famous heartwarming melody was reprised.

Nothing came to mind, and once again Wolf resorted to violence. He brought his knee up into the space between Perger’s shoulder blades, which produced simultaneously a sharp crack and a sickening dull thud.

"Fatal Lies" is the third novel in Frank Tallis’ Liebermann Papers series, set in Vienna at the turn of the 20th Century. In this outing, Detective Inspector Rheinhardt is asked to look into the unexpected death of a young student at a nearby military academy, a place where prejudice and sadism are, if not explicitly encouraged, at least not seriously frowned upon by the school authorities. It seems that one such bully has relatives in high places, which creates difficulty for Rheinhardt, and he must turn to his friend, the Jewish psychiatrist Max Liebermann, for help. When a second boy disappears days after the two friends questioned him, our heroes realize that time is quickly running out if they wish to catch a killer…. As with the two previous books in this series, what interests me most about "Fatal Lies" is the way the author depicts Viennese society in 1903, showing both a rising nationalism amongst some high-powered individuals and an accompanying rise in anti-Semitism in what had been a relatively well assimilated city. As history, it seems pretty accurate, and as a mystery, the book captures the reader’s attention very well. Recommended - but it’s probably best to read the first two novels in the series before this one!

I truly love the Max Lieberman mysteries by Frank Tallis, and this is no exception. The main characters, Dr. Liebermann and Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt, are delights, and if there were no plot, it would be enjoyable just to read their dialogue. However, as in Mr. Tallis' other novels with these two based in Vienna, this book has an interesting plot that keeps the story moving. The descriptive passages give a great sense of place, and the supporting characters are well-developed, villain and hero alike. Mr. Tallis also gives us an informative sense of the history of the times - early 20th century. This is an excellent book for anyone who enjoys anything European or Viennese or just a good who-done-it. One caveat: if you have not read any of the Max Liebermann novels by Mr. Tallis, start with an earlier one, ideally, A Death in Vienna or Fatal Lies. Some of the characters and back stories in this book refer to those earlier novels, which are excellent reads, and reading those first will enhance the reading of this book.

"Fatal Lies" is author Frank Tallis' third installment of the Lieberman/Rheinhardt mystery series, and a inventive and entertaining story it is. The core of the book is the investigation of a student's death at a Viennese military school. It's soon clear that the institution fosters a lot of the most extreme kind of bullying and mistreatment that those schools were once notorious for. The classism and latent racism of the time (turn of the 20th century) are knowingly woven into the murder mystery as well as being secondary themes in the social portrait of Vienna that is skillfully built into this mystery series by author Tallis.

Protagonist Dr. Max Liebermann, the Freud-trained psychoanalyst, brings an interesting aspect to the police procedurals that are the main engine for much of this story. But in "Fatal Lies," Dr. Liebermann finds himself thrown off stride by a developing obsession with a beautiful and exotic Hungarian woman, who takes the good doctor on a sensual ride that he cannot resist but isn't wholly comfortable about.

In addition to a multi-layered murder mystery, "Fatal Lies" presents the reader with another delicious look at Vienna when it was nearing its cultural heyday. Interestingly, the focus here is more in the direction of the late 19th Century, before the full blooming and accomplishments of the Secessionist period. In any event, the reader gets a full picture of the city and the political and social backdrop of the time. Author Tallis does not stint on detailed descriptions of food and drink either. Heartening to know that some of the watering spots mentioned in this book and others in the series e.g. The Cafe Central, are still in business and flourishing without much change in menu or decor.

The Rheinhardt/Liebermann series is first rate--inventive and evocative. "Fatal Lies" is an excellent read and highly recommended.
