While the protagonists of Jones's historical forensic series, set in 1901 Vienna, are likable, his intricate plot is Sherlockian in its posturing, minute clues, and use of heavy dialog, barely escaping becoming ponderous at times.

Two radically different cases challenge Viennese lawyer Karl Werthen in this intriguing historical series...

The Silence

Ultimately, this fin de si├Ęcle mystery is all very Sherlock Holmes. Populated with such real-life luminaries as artist Gustav Klimt, Jones's third historical series title (after The Empty Mirror) is an intricately plotted, gracefully written, and totally immersive read. Recommended for Stefanie Pintoff, Laurie R. King, and Philip Gooden fans.
