What the papers say:
'A spectacular debut... fiendishly clever... a fascinating recreation of a golden age in which much of the New York of today is recognisable' -- Guardian 'Rubenfeld writes beautifully, his style skillfully evoking the period, as he weaves all these threads into an intriguing mystery with a fascinating glimpse into the early days of psychoanalysis' -- Sunday Telegraph 'An unusually intelligent novel which entertains, informs and intrigues on several levels' -- The Times
Currently the Robert R. Slaughter Professor of Law at Yale University, Jed Rubenfeld has been described as 'one of the most elegant legal writers of his generation'. He lives in New Haven, Connecticut, with his wife and two daughters. His first novel, THE INTERPRETATION OF MURDER, published in thirty-six territories, was the bestselling UK adult paperback title of 2007, and winner of the Richard and Judy Bookclub. THE DEATH INSTINCT is his second novel.
