The Death Instinct de Jed Rubenfeld (Fleuve Noir) 2

Après L'Interprétation  des Meurtres, voici la suite du roman de Jen Rubenfeld, The Death Instinct, disponible aux USA depuis septembre dernier.

Ce sont les éditions Fleuve Noir qui prendront la suite des éditions Panama pour publier ce deuxième opus, voici le résumé en anglais :

Ten years on from THE INTERPRETATION OF MURDER, Stratham Younger and  James Littlemore embark on a thrilling new adventure in the aftermath of  a terrorist attack in New York;  it is a story that will lead Stratham  to the heart of war-ravaged Europe, where he will once again encounter  Sigmund Freud.
12.01pm, September 16, 1920.  A quarter ton of  explosives is detonated on New York's Wall Street, the deadliest attack  in the United States' 150 year history.  Stratham Younger, recently  returned from the battlefields of Europe, witnesses the explosion  alongside Captain James Littlemore of the NYPD and Colette Rousseau, a  brilliant and beautiful young disciple of Marie Curie.  Littlemore's  investigation will lead him into conflict with the FBI, and to the  centre of a dangerous web of corruption that links Wall Street and  Washington. Meanwhile Stratham and Colette embark on a perilous journey  that will take them to Vienna, where Freud will shed light on his theory  of the human desire for destruction, even self-destruction, which he  terms 'the death instinct'.
