By Vera Buck,Corry van Bree

Der Deutsche Lesepreis 2015, beste historische romans.
Genomineerd voor de Friedrich-Glauser-Preis 2016.

Indrukwekkend debuut over de duistere en schokkende geschiedenis van de psychiatrie.

Het Hôpital de l. a. Salpêtrière kwam als psychiatrisch ziekenhuis in de tweede helft van de 19e eeuw tot grote bloei en werd hét Europese centrum voor onderzoek naar hysterie en dissociatieve aandoeningen. Vele inmiddels bekende namen waren werkzaam of studeerden aan het Salpêtrière, waaronder Georges Gilles de los angeles Tourette en Sigmund Freud.

Vera greenback beschrijft in deze aangrijpende mystery beeldend en authentiek de duistere beginjaren van de psychiatrie. Afschuwelijk en afstotelijk, maar tegelijkertijd fascinerend.
Parijs 1884. Op de neurologische afdeling van de enorme Salpêtrière-kliniek voert dokter Charcot experimenten uit op hysterische patiënten. Van overal in Europa reizen mensen naar zijn macabere voorstellingen, waar de zenuwarts als een soort tovenaar zijn vrouwelijke patiënten laat dansen. Maar dan wordt op een dag Runa bij de kliniek afgeleverd: een jong meisje dat niet vatbaar lijkt voor alle bekende behandelmethodes. De artsen dompelen haar in ijsbaden en binden haar dagenlang enormous op mattress, maar niets lijkt het diep verwarde meisje te kunnen helpen.
Jori Hell, een Zwitserse scholar geneeskunde, ruikt een mogelijkheid om te promoveren en stelt iets voor aan dr. Charcot wat tot dat second als ondenkbaar gold. Als eerste arts wil hij de waanzin rechtstreeks uit de hersenen van Runa snijden, met alle risico's van dien.

Als er door heel Parijs onheilspellende boodschappen opduiken en kort daarna lijken gevonden worden van mensen die op schokkende wijze om het leven gebracht zijn, stelt de politie een onderzoek in. Naarmate het onderzoek vordert en de dag van de experimentele operatie dichterbij komt, rijst het vermoeden dat Runa veel meer is dan alleen een meisje met een getroebleerd verleden.
