The Interpretation Of Murder by Jed Rubenfeld is about Freud and Jung's visit to New York in 1909, when they try to solve a murder with their recent theories.

Yes! I can recommend my favourite book which you must read and feed back on.
The Almost Bridesmaid

'The Semantics of Murder' by Aifric Campbell - well, it's about a (very bad) psychotherapist.

Loved it.

Off now to see if there's any more out from her.

Are there any psychologists in Zoe Heller's The Believers? I can't remember if there were, but there might well have been. I loved that book too. (Really enjoyed everything by ZH.)

Regeneration by Pat Barker

In fact I think my choices are psychiatrists not psychologists (personal bias in play). Great books though.

I like Tony Hill and Alex Delaware too though.

Someone has probably already said this

The most recent series of Nicci French books?

Also The Lie of You by Jane Lythell. The psychologist and the therapy are not a main feature of this book though. It's tangential.

A good read however.

Michael Robotham. Flawed but sympathetic psychologist is the protagonist in most of his books. I think the only one that isn't is The Drowning Man.

July I loved The Believers. I seem to remember the characters as being academics. Could well have been in Psychology tho.

noeuf - who wrote your book? Can't find it on Amazon. Thanks!

Noeuf Sun 05-Apr-15 08:09:39

The unknown bridesmaid, sorry! Margaret forster

thinkofablinkingnamewoman Sun 05-Apr-15 08:18:10

Thank you - will give it a try!

Noeuf Sun 05-Apr-15 08:57:56

It's really really good. One chapter is a session in the present day with her client and one in the past .

The novels from the cracker series

Elfina Sun 05-Apr-15 14:39:39

Exciting! Thanks so much!

Just finished the Unknown Bridesmaid. Thanks Noeuf - I really enjoyed it and would recommend. It's not as 'action packed' as some of the suggestions above, but it's beautifully written and I liked the way the different client sessions fed back into Julia's story and gave another perspective on it. Any other suggestions would be very welcome!
