“The Death Instinct is a breath of fresh air in the historical mystery genre. It's a riveting descent into a forgotten piece of history - the bombing of Wall Street in 1920 - an event that has eerie parallels to the present day. Younger and Littlemore, who are essentially a deeper, more layered Holmes and a less passive, more involved Watson, dive headfirst into a thrilling conspiracy set in the ruins of the First World War, just as America is emerging as a world superpower. Rubenfeld has concocted a fast-paced, breathtaking thriller that knows just when to pause for a quiet moment of lyrical contemplation and when to ratchet up its tension to dizzying heights.”
