David Neilson

Category: Mystery/thriller

The Sophie Rathenau historical crime series brings to life the Vienna of Empress Maria Theresia in all its splendour and squalor. Tousle-headed, acid-tongued, and occasionally self-righteous, Sophie takes on aristocrats, adventurers, rogues and maniacs to solve her case—whether it’s dealing with an international conspiracy, keeping a wayward archduchess out of trouble, or facing up to the Jesuit Order.
