The eagerly awaited follow up to the million-copy selling THE INTERPRETATION OF MURDER, winner of the 2007 Richard and Judy Book of the Year
Currently the Robert R. Slaughter Professor of Law at Yale University, Jed Rubenfeld has been described as 'one of the most elegant legal writers of his generation'. He lives in New Haven, Connecticut, with his wife and two daughters.
The 1920 bombing of Wall Street, the most deadly act of terrorism in the United States until the Oklahoma blast of 1995, provides the framework for Rubenfeld's excellent follow-up to The Interpretation of Murder. The sweeping plot details the baffling hunt for those responsible for the death and injury of more than 400 New Yorkers. Numerous intriguing subplots snake out from the main story line, several of which bring such historical figures as Marie Curie, famous for her radium experiments, and Sigmund Freud, who had a significant role in the previous book, to life. Rubenfeld deftly wends his way through the shifting landscape with a historian's factual touch and a storyteller's eye for the dramatic and telling. Readers will be enthralled as Dr. Stratham Younger, the hero of The Interpretation of Murder-aided by his beautiful fiancee, scientist Colette Rousseau, and Det. James Littlemore-manages to solve the Wall Street bombing, something that the real authorities never did. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Rubenfeld's action-packed novel of psychological suspense explores the aftermath of the 1920 Wall Street bombing, which wounded or killed more than 400 people.
