Product Overview

In Vienna at the turn of the twentieth century, Max Liebermann is at the forefront of psychoanalysis, practicing the controversial new science with all the skill of a master detective. Every dream, inflection, or slip of tongue in his "hysterical" patients has meaning and reveals some hidden truth.
When a mysterious and beautiful medium dies under extraordinary circumstances, Max's good friend, Detective Oskar Rheinhardt, calls for his expert assistance. The medium's body has been found in a room that can only be locked from the inside. Her body has been shot, but there's no gun and absolutely no trace of a bullet. On a table lies a suicide note, claiming that there is "such a thing as forbidden knowledge."
All signs point to a supernatural killer, but Liebermann the scientist is not so easily convinced. He interviews the members of the medium's seance circle - a nervous locksmith, a flamboyant count, a stage magician, and others - all suspects for the impossible crime. Then one of the suspects is brutally murdered, and the pieces fall into place in Max and Oskar's hunt.
