The Interpretation of Murder is an intricately plotted literary thriller based on true events - the story of Sigmund Freud's 1909 visit to New York. Around this kernel of fact, Jed Rubenfeld has spun a spectacularly entertaining fiction centered upon murder. As fiendishly ingenious a thriller as you could hope to read, The Interpretation of Murder cuts to the heart of what it is that makes Freud's ideas so fascinating and hugely engaging. It's also the ultimate New York story: the construction of the skyscrapers, glittering high society salons, Chinatown opium dens, brothels and asylums, all have their part to play in his dazzling vision of Manhattan. A compelling tour through the dark places of a city, and of the human mind, The Interpretation of Murder is a storytelling triumph, and marks the debut of a major new talent.
