(From the publisher):
In 1909, Sigmund Freud, accompanied by his then-disciple Carl Jung, made his one and only visit to the United States. Freud always spoke, in later years, as if some trauma had befallen him. He called Americans savages. This is the story of what happened in 1909. The Interpretation of Murder is an intricate tale of murder and the minds most dangerous mysteries. It unfurls on a sweltering August evening as Freud disembarks from the steamship George Washington. Across town, in an opulent apartment high above the city, a woman is found dangling from a chandelier. The next day, a second woman, Nora Acton, barely escapes the killer. Suffering from hysteria, only Freuds psychoanalytical methods can help her recall the identity of her assailant.
