"A Frenchman or Russian could not have written that. It is the German who is so incourious to his verbs." — Sherlock Holmes
Here is a reputed report from the pen of Dr. John H. Watson, with original documents and illustrations, from the estate of the German Chancellor, Prince Otto von Bismark.
The hero of the moment in Germany is a dead but irresistibly romantic king who freely crossed the line between reality and fantasy.
Across Bavaria and the rest of Germany, exhibitions and performances are being staged to celebrate the memory of Ludwig II, the still-loved "Mad King" who was born 156 years ago
Dr. Rutter has given us a faithful English translation of the original German pastiche written by Peter Neugebauer. There are many period illustrations to highlight the text. The mystery of the mad King of Bavaria, whose legacy of beautiful castles is still with us today will intrigue and titillate the mystery reader from start to finish.
