  • "On the morning after Sigmund Freud arrives in New York on his first -- and only -- visit to the United States, a stunning debutante is found bound and strangled in her penthouse apartment, high above Broadway. The following night, another beautiful heiress, Nora Acton, is discovered tied to a chandelier in her parents' home, viciously wounded and unable to speak or to recall her ordeal. Soon Freud and his American disciple, Stratham Younger, are enlisted to help Miss Acton recover her memory, and to piece together the killer's identity. It is a riddle that will test their skills to the limit, and lead them on a thrilling journey -- into the darkest places of the city, and of the human mind."@en
  • "S'inspirant de l'unique voyage de Sigmund Freud à New York en 1909, l'auteur nous livre un thriller historique où le philosophe et ses disciples croisent, dans un New York en pleine mutation, un tueur au goût affirmé pour les jeunes et provocantes héritières. Premier roman."
  • "International Bestseller#1 U.K. BestsellerThe Wall Street Journal BestsellerLos Angeles Times BestsellerIn the summer of 1909, Sigmund Freud arrived by steamship in New York Harbor for a short visit to America. Though he would live another thirty years, he would never return to this country. Little is known about the week he spent in Manhattan, and Freud's biographers have long speculated as to why, in his later years, he referred to Americans as "savages" and "criminals." In The Interpretation of Murder, Jed Rubenfeld weaves the facts of Freud's visit into a riveting, atmospheric story of corruption and murder set all over turn-of-the-century New York. Drawing on case histories, Shakespeare's Hamlet, and the historical details of a city on the brink of modernity, The Interpretation of Murder introduces a brilliant new storyteller, a novelist who, in the words of The New York Times, "will be no ordinary pop-cultural sensation.""@en
  • "It has been said that a mystery novel is "about something" and a literary tale is not. The Interpretation of Murder has legitimate claims to both genres. It is most definitely about something, and also replete with allusions to and explications of Shakespeare, to the very beginnings of psychology, to the infighting between psychoanalytic giants--all written in a style that an author with literary aspirations might well envy. In 1909, Drs. Freud and Jung visit Manhattan. They no sooner arrive when a young socialite is murdered, followed by another attempted murder, bearing the same characteristics. In the second case, the victim lives. She has lost her voice and cannot remember anything. The young doctor, Stratham Younger, who has invited Freud to speak at his University, soon involves Dr. Freud in the case. Freud, saying that Nora's case will require a time committment that he does not have, turns her over to Younger. The rudiments of Nora's case are based on Freud's famous Dora, complete with sexual perversions, convoluted twists and turns and downright lies. That is just one of the myriad plot lines in the novel, all of which are intricate, interesting and plausible. All it takes for all of the incidents to be true is a great deal of bad will--and it is abundant here! There are politicians who are less than statesmen, city employees at work for themselves and not the city, doctors who will do anything to undermine Freud's theories, thereby saving the neurotics for themselves, and opportunists at every level of society, seeking psychological or material advantage. Carl Jung is portrayed by turns as secretive, mysterious, odd, and just plain nuts, while Freud remains a gentleman whose worst problem is his bladder. Not the least interesting aspect of the book is all the turn-of-the-century New York lore: bridge building, great mansions, the Astor versus Vanderbilt dustup, immigrant involvement, fabulous entertaining, auto versus carriage. Despite the tangle of tales, debut author Jed Rubenfeld finishes it with."@en

  • "Manche Verbrechen entziehen sich jeder Analyse Als Sigmund Freud 1909 in New York zu einer Vorlesungsreise eintrifft, treibt in der Stadt ein diabolischer Killer sein Unwesen. Eine junge Frau überlebt, doch die schrecklichen Erlebnisse haben sie sprachlos gemacht. Kann Freud dem Täter mit den Mitteln der Psychoanalyse auf die Spur kommen? Ein hochspannender Thriller aus dem New York der Jahrhundertwende. Im August 1909 trifft Sigmund Freud in Begleitung von Carl Jung und Sándor Ferenczi mit dem Schiff in New York ein, um an der Clark University eine Vorlesung über Psychoanalyse zu halten. Empfangen werden sie von ihrem amerikanischen Kollegen Stratham Younger. Zur gleichen Zeit geschieht in einem Luxusapartment ein grausamer Mord an einer jungen Frau. Sie hängt an einen Kronleuchter gefesselt, ihr Körper wurde geschändet. Als kurz darauf eine weitere Tochter aus höherem Hause auf ähnliche Weise misshandelt wird und nur knapp mit dem Leben davonkommt, macht sich die Polizei auf die Suche nach dem Serientäter. Da das Opfer nach der Attacke unter Amnesie und Stimmverlust leidet, wird Younger konsultiert, der die junge Frau mit Freuds Hilfe zu analysieren versucht. Schon bald stecken sie mitten in einem komplexen Kriminalfall, der in die höchsten Kreise der New Yorker Gesellschaft führt. Im Jahr 1909 machte Sigmund Freud in Begleitung seines damaligen Schülers C.G. Jung seine einzige Reise in die USA, um an der Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, eine Vorlesungsreihe über Psychoanalyse zu halten. Trotz des großen Erfolgs seiner Reise äußerte sich Freud in späteren Jahren stets so darüber, als hätte er in den Vereinigten Staaten ein großes Trauma erlitten. Er bezeichnete die Amerikaner als "Wilde", und er machte Amerika für körperliche Beschwerden verantwortlich, die ihn schon lange vor 1909 geplagt hatten. Freuds Biografen haben über dieses Geheimnis gerätselt und spekuliert, ob nicht ein bislang unbekanntes Ereignis in Amerika hinter diesem sonst völlig unerklärlichen Verhalten stecken könnte. "Fesselnde Mischung aus Thriller und historischem Roman." Playboy "Einfach fantastisch!" GQ "Ein einzigartiger Roman!" The New York Times"
