About this book: The Case of Emily V. was first published in Great Britain  in 1994. It has never been released in the U.S., and we are extremely proud to be able to do this. This mystery involves the story of Emily in fin de siècle Vienna, a young woman who is horribly distraught because of the murder of a British diplomat, a murder she believes she committed. But did she? Her therapist, the famous Dr. Sigmund Freud, suggests to his colleagues that she may in fact be fantasizing that she is guilty. Sara, her colleague/lover, is supportive of her regardless of what she did. It takes the famous Sherlock Holmes, called in by Scotland Yard, to try to resolve this issue. This highly psychological mystery keeps a reader wondering until the final pages, and in fact the addition of a fourth “voice,” that of psychologist Dr. Ellen Berger, is finally used to help unravel the mystery. 
	This book was eleven weeks on the Globe and Mail best seller list. It was reprinted four times before being reissued as a Minerva paperback. It was shortlisted for the Mind Prize in UK, and it won the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best First Novel. It has been translated into German and French.
