The Interpretation of Murder by Jed Rubenfeld

An inventive tour de force inspired by Sigmund Freud’s 1909 visit to America, accompanied by protégé 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.

A dazzling literary thriller - think Shadow of the Wind meets The Historian.

Peer & Press Reviews

A spectacular debut… fiendishly clever… a fascinating recreation of a golden age in which much of the New York of today is recognisable.


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.
