International Bestseller #1 U.K. Bestseller The Wall Street Journal Bestseller Los Angeles Times Bestseller In the summer of 1909, Sigmund Freud arrived by steamship in New York Harbor for a short visit to America. Though he would live another thirty years, he would never return to this country. Little is known about the week he spent in Manhattan, and Freud's biographers have long speculated as to why, in his later years, he referred to Americans as "savages" and "criminals." In The Interpretation of Murder, Jed Rubenfeld weaves the facts of Freud's visit into a riveting, atmospheric story of corruption and murder set all over turn-of-the-century New York. Drawing on case histories, Shakespeare's Hamlet, and the historical details of a city on the brink of modernity, The Interpretation of Murder introduces a brilliant new storyteller, a novelist who, in the words of The New York Times, "will be no ordinary pop-cultural sensation."

It quickly became water under the bridge, until she vanished after her sensational 1925 murder trial.

Amy is skeptical until their research raises questions about the culpability of the town’s leading families... including her own.

**A Guardian 'Best Thriller of the Year!'** The New York Times bestselling author of Magpie Murders and Moriarty brilliantly reinvents the classic crime novel once again with this clever and inventive mystery starring a fictional version of the author himself as the Watson to a modern-day Holmes, investigating a case involving buried secrets, murder, and a trail of bloody clues. A woman crosses a London street. It is just after 11am on a bright spring morning, and she is going into a funeral parlor to plan her own service. Six hours later the woman is dead, strangled with a crimson curtain cord in her own home. Enter disgraced police detective Daniel Hawthorne, a brilliant, eccentric man as quick with an insult as he is to crack a case. And Hawthorne has a partner, the celebrated novelist Anthony Horowitz, curious about the case and looking for new material. As brusque, impatient, and annoying as Hawthorne can be, Horowitz—a seasoned hand when it comes to crime stories—suspects the detective may be on to something, and is irresistibly drawn into the mystery. But as the case unfolds, Horowitz realizes he’s at the center of a story he can’t control . . . and that his brilliant partner may be hiding dark and mysterious secrets of his own. A masterful and tricky mystery which plays games at many levels, The Word Is Murder is Anthony Horowitz at his very best.

Will this be DI Hillary Greene's first failure on a murder case? When an elderly lady is stabbed to death in her own home, D.I. Hillary Greene is instantly puzzled. The house doesn't appear to have been robbed, Flo Jenkins herself was well-liked by her neighbours and she hadn't an enemy in the world. Also, it was widely known that she was very unwell and when the post mortem reveals that she was riddled with cancer and had only weeks, maybe even days left to live, Hillary's even more nonplussed. Why kill a dying woman? To make matters worse, her team is distracted by her sergeant, Janine Tyler's upcoming marriage to Superintendent Philip Mallow and subsequent transfer out of HQ. Then her new DC turns out to have something of a violent temper and an uncertain past. With no forensics, no leads and only a junkie nephew as a vague suspect, is this going to be Hillary Greene's first failure on a murder case?
