Sophie Rathenau’s Vienna Mysteries Volume 1
A very enjoyable mystery story in the historically fascinating setting of Vienna in 1772. Dealing with a client who will only reveal a minimum of information, Sophie Graephin von Rathenau, private investigator, has her hands full finding a missing, secret document. The content of said document and its historical consequences becomes gradually clearer as her quest takes her through brothels and International diplomatic circles.
Sophie is a feisty and resourceful investigator whose dire personal circumstances are only one part of her drive to find the truth. Tension is built up nicely, the characters and the story are very engaging. Historical facts and details are not overdone but add nicely to the flair and intensity of the novel. A protagonist I look forward to reading more of, which, given the open nature of the ending, we surely will do.
