Trained by her father as a rational intellectual who distrusts emotion, Kate Fitzgerald puts her lengthy stay in prison for murdering her husband to good use by studying the work of Sigmund Freud. When the reputation of Freud is threatened by the Director of the “Freud Academy”, Kate is teamed with another ex-con and sent to examine the Director’s arguments. Their quest takes them to Europe and back, narrowly escaping re-arrest as key players are murdered. This mystery puts a new slant on Freud’s and Darwin’s theories.
What a fun read for anyone with an interest in Freud and the history of psychonalalysis. Great repartee and interesting mix of plot and reflection of the detectives' own repressive upbringing as it bears on solving the murder. The author has her own psychoanalytic practice in Toronto so the insights ring true despite the unusual psyches of the detectives. There is a little 'lacuna' ( as K. would say) in the early part of the plot, but keep reading, it picks up.
Suffers a little from some continuity problems that a good re-edit might address. Very enjoyable.
