From the Back Cover

A bold new thriller from the best-selling author of The Hangman s Daughter series
In 1886, Ludwig II, the Fairy-tale King of Bavaria, was deposed after being declared insane by doctors who had never met him. He died mysteriously soon thereafter, his eccentric and beautiful castles his only legacy. In "The Ludwig Conspiracy," master of historical suspense Oliver Potzsch brings the Mad King back to life.
An encoded diary by one of Ludwig s confidants falls into the hands of modern-day rare-book dealer Steven Lukas, who soon realizes that the diary may bring him more misery than money. Lukas teams up with a beautiful art detective, Sara Lengfeld, to investigate each of Ludwig s three famous castles for clues to crack the diary s code as mysterious thugs and Ludwig s fanatical followers chase them at every step. Just what in the diary could be so explosive?
"This gripping thriller brings together the present and the past with high-action adventure in a bold, entertaining storyline." "Shepherd Express" (Milwaukee)

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 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.

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.

Really enjoyed this book. The historical information was fantastic. Didn't know much about king Ludwig before reading this book so it was interesting in a lot of ways. Checked out the web and looked at a lot of pictures of his castles. Well worth reading.

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?
