They hit the reader systematically, almost as if one were looking over a series of bullet points. Ideally I would have liked to see fact and fiction blended together as one, but that is not what I found here. The nail in the coffin however came back to show, don't tell. Love and Death in Vienna had no emotional power, nothing that drew me in or blew me away. To be entirely honest this is the kind of writing I expect from nonfiction writers - straightforward, shallow and flat.

In his book Crime at Mayerling, The Life and Death of Mary Vetsera, Georg Markus claims that what happened at Mayerling was never seriously investigated, and the few investigations that were made were falsified – manipulated by the monarchy. However, on 31 July 2015 the Austrian National Library issued copies of Vetsera's letters of farewell to her mother and other family members.

Crime at Mayerling deals with two of the most sensational crimes committed during the past century. Although separated in time by a hundred years, they are inextricably connected. In January 1889 the corpses of Archduke Rudolf, Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary, and Baroness Mary Vetsera were discovered in the prince's hunting lodge at Mayerling, near Vienna. In December 1992 Mary's remains were stolen from a cemetery in the same area.-- For decades scientists and historians had been trying to solve the mystery of what had happened at Mayerling. An Austrian 'Mayerling buff' felt compelled to reach an explanation in his own way: he secretly opened the grave of Baroness Vetsera at night, stole the coffin with her remains, and had them examined by forensic physicians and other specialists. -- Georg Markus, a Viennese author and journalist, discovered the desecration of the grave, reported it to the police, and obtained for his newspaper the exclusive rights to the story. His reporting led to an early solution of the case. -- There has been considerable speculation about the crime at Mayerling for over a century. Now, for the first time, the way Mary Vetsera died can be precisely reconstructed, providing information that contributes to a final resolution of the mystery.

This is one of the few translated to English books about the murder-suicide (suicide pact, to be precise) of Rudolf, the Hapsburg Crown Prince and his mistress Marie "Mary" Vetsera, and for that reason alone is to be recommended. The affair, impulsive and reckless on both sides, and the trajectory of events in late 1888 to January 1889 are re-examined, along with the 1991 exhumation of Vetsera's remains by a man obsessed with the case.

The research is good, but in general the discussions are a rehashing of the various theories that circulated immediately following the tragedy. Some (that Marie Vetsera was pregnant) are dubious, if one takes into consideration the generally acknowledged timeline of events; others, such as assassination, also conflict with the known evidence. What does come through the pages is that Rudolf was a thoughtful and progressive, but selfish and hedonistic, depressive who was both afraid of continuing his current life and also fearful of committing suicide alone. Despite the author's speculation about what kind of ruler Rudolf would have become, or that the gathering maelstrom of European politics might have been altered due to his more liberal and progressive tendencies, in the end we are left with a man whose family background and own character let his talents go to waste. Having broached suicide with both his wife and his favored mistress, he managed to persuade a headstrong, socially ambitious but still naive teenager, caught up in the whirlwind of an affair that she knew would have no happy ending for her, into romanticizing suicide and becoming his companion in death. This book does not provide any new, incontrovertible evidence that puts the competing theories to rest, but it does put another nail into the coffin of the myth of the epic romance, as has been depicted on screen.

Crime at Mayerling is probably the first nonfiction title I would recommend to anyone interested in the tragedy. I'll grant it isn't the most detailed text on the subject, but it is a pretty decent introduction. The text is straightforward, easy to follow and not too detailed on the political side of things.

The major selling point here is that the author, Georg Markus, was literally on the front lines of the latest twist in the Mayerling story. In 1991, Helmut Flatzelsteiner, in his obsession with the case, removed the remains of Mary Vetsera from her grave in Heiligenkreuz. Markus became involved in 1993 when Flatzelsteiner tried to sell the story to various media outlets. His book is an account these events as well as a breakdown of the 1889 murder/suicide.

Not to say the book isn't without its shortcomings. It was published in 1993, ahead of the examination reports on Mary's remains. One of the most debated unknowns of Mayerling is how Mary died. Was she murdered as part of a clandestine suicide agreement? Was she the victim of a botched abortion? Or was she an unlucky bystander, the victim of an assassin sent to dispatch her lover? The theories are endless and unfortunately, Markus' book gives us no additional clues to puzzle over.

Crime at Mayerling is the most recently published nonfiction available in the United States. It's a sad truth considering the book is nearly two decades old. Still, it is the most concise version of the story and though I don't think it the best volume for those already familiar with the case, it is by far the best primer available regarding the mystery.

This is a fascinating book about a fascinating story. I'm both a history buff and a murder mystery buff, so this had everything for me. There is a generous section of black-and-white pictures, and the characters of Mary Vetsera and Archduke Rudolf are nicely drawn, along with the kind of pressure under which they both were living. One always wants to know "Why?" when something like this happens. The Habsburg family went into lockdown mode immediately after the deaths, so there are things we will never know for sure. Opinions from key players and rumors of artifacts have leaked out since then, and they are also covered in the book.

The story of the wanderings of Mary Vetsera's corpse are a separate, startling story, told at first-hand by the journalist who was approached by the nut case that dug her up. I guess that makes two remarkable stories in one book.

This book put in perspective the events that occurred in Mayerling. It also chronicled the strife that existed between Sisi and Franz Joseph as well as the lack of understanding as to how the world was changing prior to WWI. In many respects, this lack of understanding of the people is what led to war. It serves as a lesson to current leaders to tune in to what the people want and need.

I find this an intensely interesting book. It is difficult to determine what is fact and what is fiction in all matters concerning Mayerling. This book is presenting several conclusions that can be considered in reaching a decision as to the incidents that took place at Mayerling. Georg Markus has chosen one only which he firmly believes is the true facts about Crown Prince Rudolph and his love affair with Mary Vetsera, and the tragedy that occurred as a partial result Due to his extensive research and his acquaintance with distant relatives of the Crown Prince who are still living , although the events occurred in 1889. Mary Vetsera was only 17 when her young life was extinguished. 100 years later Mary was once again astonishingly thrust into historical importance. I highly recommend this book for its amazing revelations of great historic consideration.
