Wiener Requiem

Wiener Requiem

Author(s): I Sydney Jones

Location(s): Vienna

Genre(s): Crime

Era(s): Fin de Siecle, late 1800s



Set during the peak of Vienna’s cultural renaissance and featuring some of the city’s most colorful residents, including Gustav Mahler, Requiem in Vienna is perfect historical fiction – rich description, vivid characters, and a mystery that will leave readers guessing till the very last moment.

At first it seemed like a series of accidents plagued Vienna’s Court Opera. But after a singer is killed during rehearsals of a new production, the evidence suggests something much more dangerous. Someone is trying to murder the famed conductor and composer Gustav Mahler. Worse, Mahler might not be the first musical genius to be dispatched by this unknown killer.
