In 1977, the Heart Break Killer haunted Brooklyn. Victims were found stabbed in the chest with a cartoon heart carved sickeningly into their skin. The serial killer was Elliot Hurley, and a policeman responding to a disturbance call killed her just as she completed her final murder—although some suspect there was a cover up. Ten years later, young Oliver Hann moves to Brooklyn to attend a prestigious police academy. He writes a paper outlining the story of 1977, and his doubts about the veracity of it, so his professor invites Oliver to join the Theory Club, in which brilliant students spin theories about murder and mayhem. When a young woman is discovered in a bush, killed in the same way as victims in 1977, it appears that the Heart Break Killer has returned from the grave. Oliver and his Theory Club friends take to the streets to find the copycat killer, exposing the cover-up and solving a decade old mystery.

Contemporary Perspectives on the Freudian Death Drive provides a sustained discussion of the death drive from the perspective of different psychoanalytic traditions. Ever since Freud introduced the notion of the death drive, it has been the subject of intense debate in psychoanalysis and beyond. The death drive is arguably the most unsettling psychoanalytic concept. What this concept points to is more unsettling still. It uniquely illuminates the forces of destruction and dissolution at work in individuals as well as in society. This book first introduces Freud’s use of the term, tracing the debates and developments his ideas have led to. The subsequent essays by leading Viennese psychoanalysts demonstrate the power of the death drive to illuminate psychoanalytic theory, clinical practice, and the study of culture. Since this book originally arose from a conference in Vienna, its final segment is dedicated to the forced exile of the early Viennese psychoanalysts due to the Nazi threat. Due to its wide scope and the many perspectives it offers, this book is a tribute to the disturbing relevance of the death drive today. Contemporary Perspectives on the Freudian Death Drive is of special interest to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, social and cultural scientists, as well as anyone intending to understand the sources and vicissitudes of human destructiveness.

Existential psychology examines how people deal with the biggest issues - such as finding meaning in life and facing death. It deals with many of the same problems as psychoanalysis and analytical psychology, but emphasises the view that one can understand the life of another by listening to their way of seeing existence and opening up their ‘phenomenal world’. As a therapeutic approach it is recognised by the British Psychological Society and taught on a number of courses. This introductory text discusses all the main contemporary theories of existential psychology, and illustrates them with case examples. Practical implications for clinical work are considered, and comparisons with other approaches such as humanistic psychotherapy are made throughout.
