Reviews

"Lindemann has creatively used the real-life murder of Count Joseph Visconti... to examine 18th-century European life and politics."

"Full of wonderfully illuminating insights."

"Lindemann has written a rich and rewarding work, one that demonstrates how well she has mastered her craft."

"Lindemann has produced an excellent work, one that scholars can ponder and undergraduates can enjoy."

"A lively and notably readable study that is both a fascinating, if ultimately unsolvable, detective story and multilayered exploration of later eighteenth-century Europe."

"Aside from the scholarly value of the work, readers will derive great pleasure from Lindemann's gifts as a raconteur. She visualizes every moment of her narrative in a way that makes Hamburg as attractive and mysterious a mental destination for us as Venice or Istanbul."

"Microhistory is here at its best when spreading its investigative net to related, yet more remote, thematic layers."
