Killer Desserts: The True Story of the Viennese Cafe Czar Turned Mass Murderer
Author: Amy Abraham
Format: Kindle Edition

Release Date: November 30, 2018
By day he ran the royal confectioners. By night, a den of debauchery where he extracted the weaknesses of powerful men. His blackmail box made him untouchable until his success turned him into a mass murderer.
Killer Desserts is based on the bewildering true story of Udo Proksch. An extraordinary tale of greed, power, perfect-pastries and Viennese decadence no one could invent. It's the story of a man who could seduce any woman and overcome any problem - that is, until his ship went down.
Killer Desserts had me hooked from the first page and kept me guessing until the last. This novel starts in 1942 and ends in 2001, narrated by the indomitable Udo Proksch. Like Udo, this book will pull you in so many directions and surprise you at every turn. You might just find yourself asking the same question I still am: Did he know he was sending them to their deaths?
