Product Description

Review

“Pötzsch’s sophisticated plotting and good use of a real-life historical puzzle place this far ahead of most Da Vinci Code wannabes.”
      —Publishers Weekly [HC starred review]



“Historical mystery fans and conspiracy theorists will find much to enjoy.”
      —Library Journal



“Narrator Simon Vance propels the story with his rich tone and subtle phrasing as he brings the listener intimately into the action of the plot.”
      —AudioFile



“Exciting adventure . . . brought alive by the smooth performance of Simon Vance.”
      —Wisconsin Bookwatch



“[Simon Vance] convincingly portrays a varied cast . . . dramatizing the authentic historical details while matching the urgent pace and tone.”
      —Booklist



“Simon Vance is a brilliant narrator, perfect for the aristocrats, the Americans, and the folks involved in keeping the memory of Ludwig II alive for assorted purposes for history and tourism. Compelling listening for the road, the air, or the living room.”
      —Sound Commentary

--This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

I never knew much about King Ludwig before reading this amazing murder mystery but was a fan of the authors other books and took a chance reading it and was not disappointed! From beginning to end the story of murder, intrigue and conspiracy of history rivals Dan Brown's Davici Code. Oliver Potzsch has done a magnificent job of spinning this tale and delivering a true literary masterpiece! I one day hope to visit Bavaria and the places to where the author brought Bavarian history and intrigue alive for me.

I was expecting more based on the other reviews. The plot has a very typical formula - Da Vinci Code anyone? - and I skimmed a lot. I'm of Bavarian heritage so that kept me reading. I think with a bit more imagination and less gratuitous gore, it could have been a really good book. The best part is it has prompted me to find out more about Ludwig.

Just as enjoyable as the "Hangman" series books, Oliver Potzsch uses a (true) historical "who done it" to highly entertaining effect, in this modern mystery.

I couldn't put the book down! The elements of historical truth made this mystery captivating. Will there be a sequel? What is next for Potzsch?

I enjoy all of the Hangman's Daughter books, but perhaps the Ludwig Conspiracy the most. They are interesting reads, well written and have historical significance.
I love the last parts about how to find the places and how to enjoy the area should one travel there today.
I have already recommended these books to many, and will continue to do so.
