Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A bold new thriller from the best-selling author of The Hangmans 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 Pötzsch brings the Mad King back to life.

An encoded diary by one of Ludwigs 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 Ludwigs three famous castles for clues to crack the diarys code as mysterious thugs and Ludwigs 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)

"Pötzsch makes clever use of Bavarias equivalent of the Kennedy assassination in this excellent stand-alone . . . Pötzschs sophisticated plotting and good use of a real-life historical puzzle place this far ahead of most Da Vinci Code wannabes." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

Synopsis:

From the bestselling author of The Hangmans Daughter, a historical thriller set in contemporary Bavaria, about Ludwig II's mysterious death and the long-lost diary that could unlock its secrets.
