In 1909 Sigmund Freud - whose ideas about behavior, sex, and psychology had sparked fierce debate - came to New York on his way to Clark University to accept an honorary degree. Little of what happened on this trip is known, but after he left the country, Freud refused to ever return to the United States. This novel supposes that the morning after his arrival a beautiful woman is discovered murdered - whipped, mutilated, and strangled with a white silk tie. The next day an heiress barely escapes becoming the killer's second victim. A doctor Younger, asked to consult on the case, calls on the visiting Freud to guide him through the girl's analysis. As Younger is drawn into her story, he comes to care deeply fore her, even as he discovers that she may still be in grave danger. Drawing on Freud's case histories, Shakespeare's Hamlet, and the rich history of New York, this novel is intricately plotted and elegantly wrought entertainment. The binding is pictorial, shown through a rectangle in the jacket. ; 8vo 8" - 9 3/4" tall; 367 pages
