I really enjoyed this book. I liked that it had a mystery and also that it went into detail about King Ludwig's Castles. It was like I was visiting them again from my past adventures at Linderhof. I didn't actually read this I listened to it during my daily commute.

A good, action-filled mystery around the death of Ludwig ll.
The author used historical facts interwoven into the story and I learned things I was not aware of before.

I have read all but the latest "Hangman's Daughter" series and like them a lot so when I saw this by the same author I thought it would be worth my while to read it. On a scale of 1-10, I would give this a 6.5 . It isn't as good as I hoped for but it is definitely better than I thought it would be after the slow start. If you aren't a person who likes historical/period stories, I would stay away from this book. If, on the other hand, you like this sort of storyline, it is definitely worthwhile. Potzsch explains his references in the book to Ludwig really well so you don't have to know Bavarian history to enjoy the book. I would definitely recommend it.
