The Interpretation of Murder has been called:
"A dazzling literary thriller - the story of Sigmund Freud assisting a Manhattan murder investigation. Think Shadow of the Wind meets The Historian. The Interpretation of Murder is an inventive "tour de force" inspired by Sigmund Freud's 1909 visit to America, accompanied by protege and rival Carl Jung.
In the words of Jeffrey Karacs, a Waterstone's bookseller based at Waterstone's Kensington:
"Mix together New York in the early 1900s, the murder of a beautiful young woman, a trainee psychiatrist, a rookie cop and a host of sinster characters and you have the recipe for a perfectly formed historical novel. Add to this the figures of Freud and Jung and you will discover what I found to be an original, page turning spin the detective genre which held me in suspense right until the very end. I predict it to be on the best sellers list in 2007 from a first time novelist, and not since 'Shadow of the Wind' have I so enjoyed a book."
