Manhattan Freud by Luc Bossi

 

A  rich and famous architect is found murdered at his house in Manhattan.The only witness  to the murder is his daughter , but she is anable to give any information to the police, as she is suffering from amnesia. At the same time the famous Viennese psychologist Sigmund Freud happens to be in New York with his good student Carl Yung. The two men will be called to offer their services and apply the therapeutic method of psychoaanalysis to the young woman. They will be faced  with a great challenge : to penetrate the soul of a mass murderer.

The book is brilliant!!It is based on a historical event, the journey that  Freud and Yung took in New York  in 1909. Sigmund Freud was invited to give a series of lectures at the American Universities and discuss his theory of Psychoanalysis. Bossi combines historical information with fiction and the result is this magnificent book. I totally recomment it!
