Deadly Communion : (Liebermann Papers 5) Paperback
by Frank Tallis
Part of the Liebermann Papers series
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...

Review by polarbear123
This is the first Tallis book that I have read featuring Liebermann so I was a little surprised by the other review here. I have to say I rather enjoyed the story and liked the idea that it was just not the one case that was being solved but several. I also thought the idea of having the unknown murder confess his past at various points in the book was clever and unique. It has certainly made me want to read the previous books in the series at any rate.
