This is probably the strongest entry in Tallis's series yet. In some of the earlier volumes, Liebermann's professional life seems to fall so far by the wayside that you wonder how he keeps his job. Here, his work as a doctor is integrated into a subplot linked to the social issues driving the murders. The precious descriptions of cafes and pastries remain, but there are more good passages about classical music and Liebermann's efforts to become a better pianist. Miss Lydgate, unfortunately, does not make an appearance--I suppose the author is motivated to draw out that subplot more or less indefinitely. In any event, the quality of books 3 and 4 make books 1 and 2 worthwhile.
