The crime that rocked an empire struck in 1909, when a young officer in Franz Josef's army, passed over for promotion, was accused of mailing poisoned 'aphrodisiac' capsules to ten members of the Imperial and Royal Austro-Hungarian Army's General Staff. The agonizing death of the one officer who swallowed a capsule, Captain Richard Mader, not only brought about an unsavory scandal in glittering Vienna but set off one of the most extraordinary investigations on record: the confrontation between Judge Advocate Emil Kunze and the accused, First Lieutenant Peter Dorfrichter. Kunze, facing the strikingly handsome, self-confident, intelligent Dorfrichter, had to admit that his suspect was a most unlikely murderer. Full Synopsis
