Jed Rubenfeld's entertaining psychological thriller is full of enjoyable twists and turns.

THIS much-hyped debut novel, a historical thriller by Jed Rubenfeld, a Yale law professor, deploys the surefire Da Vinci Code formula: titillation plus high-culture trivia. Alternating scenes of erotic asphyxiation with references to Copernicus and Hegel, The Interpretation of Murder takes as its subjects Sigmund Freud’s 1909 visit to America and a series of attacks on young society women. The result is both smutty and pretentious. The story opens, embarrassingly, with a paraphrase of Tolstoy: There is no mystery to happiness. Unhappy men are all alike. The Interpretation of Murder leads readers from the salons of Gramercy Park, through secret passages, to Chinatown-even far below the currents of the East River where laborers are building the Manhattan Bridge.
