Kurzbeschreibung

From one of America's finest historical novelists, author also of 'Cassandra, The Most Beautiful of Priam's Daughters: A Tale of Troy'


Death Waltz in Vienna is a novel of both suspense and romance set in the capital of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire in the years prior to World War I. Army captain Ernst von Falkenburg has just one week to clear himself of charges of treason that will otherwise cost him his life. During this time a romance develops with a beautiful woman who not merely provides him with indispensable assistance – at the risk of her life – but who shows him for the first time that he is capable of love.

The action moves across the whole panorama of early 20th century Vienna, taking the reader through elegant salons and low dives, Vienna’s most fashionable brothel and the imperial palace, and climaxes in a duel to the death and an epilogue set in Vienna’s Central Cemetery.

THOMAS OCHILTREE (pronounced OH-kul-tree) was born in New York City but grew up in London and studied in the U.S. (Harvard Class of 1970). He is a retired Foreign Service Officer who served in many countries during his 22 years as a U.S. diplomat. Fluent in German, he has long been fascinated with the last years of the Austro-Hungarian Empire --- with its glittering capital Vienna --- the background against which his novel DEATH WALTZ IN VIENNA is set. In addition to devoting himself to his various literary interests, he works part time on line as a translator, translating documents from German, French, Italian and Spanish into English. He does not have a Facebook or Twitter account, but would be glad to receive or respond to any reader comments on his novel at Ochiltreeth@yahoo.com.

This was his first novel. A second novel, CASSANDRA, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL OF PRIAM'S DAUGHTERS : A TALE OF TROY, was published in October 2013.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A really good historical novel 5. September 2013
Von Eternally Dubious - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Van Falkenburg does not want to die. However, he has been brought up in a world where a gentleman's honor is believed to be more precious than life; a principle for which men sometimes give their lives. Now, he is faced with the most important decision of his life, a decision to be made on that very principle.
Death Waltz in Vienna is a story of love, honor and intrigue, a wonderful historical novel based in Vienna prior to WW1. It is a novel well worth reading. I highly recommend it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good mystery, great historical and social background 29. Januar 2014
Von ERH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed this mystery set in 19th century Vienna. The story was good and well written: the characters interesting. The detailed background of the story was a special bonus. The historical period is well described as are the social rules of the time, which drive the action of the characters. The background was detailed enough to be interesting and render the characters more understandable, but not drawn out so much as to interfere with the action. I am looking forward to a sequel, and other books by this author.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Protagonist has one week to solve a mystery and save his life 22. März 2015
Von Penelope James - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Set in late 1800's Vienna, this book offers a look at cultural and social attitudes as well as the issues leading to the eventual dismantlement of the vast Austro-Hungarian Empire. Old traditions are adhered to, honor is everything, and when an army captain is unable to pay his debts, the only honorable way out is to shoot himself.

An impoverished captain from an aristocratic family is framed and given a week to prove his innocence. If not, he must kill himself. Captain Von Falkenburg wants to live, he's just fallen in love, and he determines to find out who set him up and why. He hasn't a clue, but he follows a string of minor hunches. His hunt takes him into both the rich and the seamy sides of Vienna. A grim view of Franz-Joseph in his waning years, an emperor who worked sixteen hours a day to rule his motley people, and who struggled to arrest the approaching demise of his empire. The final two scenes, high stakes baccarat and a duel, had me racing through the pages.

However, the writing verges on dry, is repetitious, disjointed in places, and goes on for too long. Von Falkenb'''urg is a cold and distant character. While I shared his urgency to solve the mystery and absolve himself from blame, I never felt a gripping concern for his fate.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Read 26. Dezember 2013
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Just a note to tell you how much I enjoyed this book. Having spent several summers in Vienna, I especially enjoyed all the street names and real directions that are built into the story. The book kept my interest right up to the end, which might be tough since we all know that the hero will live through it all, but none the less it was really nicely put together.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Tood Historical Fiction 11. August 2014
Von Marjie, Mother of 9 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book takes place one week in 1906. Captain Von Falkenberg is accused of treason, and given one week to disprove the evidence which the Army holds against him, after which time they will expect him to take the "gentleman's way out" and commit suicide. His figuring out who is behind the forged evidence and how to get proof is well written. And, of course, there's a beautiful, wealthy young widow to provide the love interest, pushing the Captain all the harder to clear his name.
