'Rubenfeld has taken this real-life mystery atrocity and peopled it with a rich cast of heroes and villains... a tapestry of intrigue, corruption, double-dealing and double standards on a grand scale. A must-read for conspiracy theorists.'
'This elegant thriller mixes real events from the first years of 20th century America with Rubenfeld's fictional heroes... Superbly evocative of American society in the era of Prohibition, it will thrill Rubenfeld's fans around the world.'
'Carefully researched and energetically told, THE DEATH INSTINCT is likely to be as popular as Rubenfeld's first novel.'
'A Buchanesque thriller'
