Books we love

The interpretation of murderThis week we have Fani from Central Library reviewing one of her favourite books, The Interpretation of Murder by Jed Rubenfeld.  After a series of brutal attacks on young, society women, Sigmund Freud is called upon to use his revolutionary new ideas to help profile the killer and restore the memory of one of the victims.

The Interpretation of Murder is based around the real-life mystery surrounding Freud’s first -and only-visit to America in 1909. Dr. Stratham Younger, a Freud devotee, is asked to assist the second victim, Nora Acton, regain her memory. He turns to his teacher help in order they find the killer’s identity.

It is a novel with historical facts and exciting plot. One of my favourite books, which I recommend because it is a blend of murder mystery and biography.
