A sexual predator is at large on the streets of Imperial Vienna. The killer is no ordinary 'lust murderer' but an entirely new phenomenon, his deviance revealing the darker preoccupations of the age. Detective Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt appeals to his friend, psychoanalyst Dr. Max Liebermann, for assistance. But to understand the killer's behaviour, Liebermann must make a journey into uncharted regions of the human mind, tracking a monster whose modus operandi combines both exquisite precision and savage cruelty.As the investigation continues, Liebermann and Rheinhardt find themselves drawn into the worlds of art and couture, worlds in which glamorous appearances mask the most sinister of secrets...

"It's cleverly done and never dull, with science and folklore neatly woven into a fascinating plot. This, together with well researched and wonderfully imagined period detail, make Deadly Communion a rich and riveting read" * Guardian *
"Brilliantly combines the popular with the serious in clever historical thrillers" * Independent *
"Confirms his place in the front rank of British thriller writers" * Daily Mail *
"Tallis's writing still has the richness of literary fiction ... the reader is taken into the terrifying psyche of a murderer ... Deadly Communion is the most psychologically cohesive of the Max Liebermann outings" * Independent *
"An interesting, intelligent and enjoyable read" * www.eurocrime.co.uk *
