The Interpretation of Murder

Author(s): Jed Rubenfeld

SECONDHAND BOOKS | Literary Fiction

This is a dazzling literary thriller - 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.

2006. A trade paperback copy in very good condition.
