The 10 year anniversary edition of a dazzling literary thriller including brand new material, THE INTERPRETATION OF MURDER is the story of Sigmund Freud assisting a Manhattan murder investigation. Think SHADOW OF THE WIND meets THE HISTORIAN.THE INTERPRETATION OF MURDER is an inventive tour de force inspired by Sigmund Freud's 1909 visit to America, accompanied by protege and rival Carl Jung. When a wealthy young debutante is discovered bound, whipped and strangled in a luxurious apartment overlooking the city, and another society beauty narrowly escapes the same fate, the mayor of New York calls upon Freud to use his revolutionary new ideas to help the surviving victim recover her memory of the attack, and solve the crime. But nothing about the attacks - or about the surviving victim, Nora - is quite as it seems. And there are those in very high places determined to stop the truth coming out, and Freud's startling theories taking root on American soil.

Reviews

'A spectacular debut! fiendishly clever! a fascinating recreation of a golden age in which much of the New York of today is recognisable' -- Guardian 'Rubenfeld writes beautifully, his style skillfully evoking the period, as he weaves all these threads into an intriguing mystery with a fascinating glimpse into the early days of psychoanalysis' -- Sunday Telegraph 'An unusually intelligent novel which entertains, informs and intrigues on several levels' -- The Times

This dazzling historical thriller is set in New York in 1909 when Freud and several of his followers visit. They are met by two other Freudians including a young doctor who is smitten by the almost victim of a killer who struck in an exclusive uptown penthouse. He is assigned to analyse the young woman who has apparently lost all memory of the events that occured. Stylish, literate and deeply compelling reading with a cast of characters both real and fiction the are all vivid.
