The Death Instinct by Jed Rubenfeld

The Death Instinct begins with a factual event, a still-unsolved bombing on Wall Street in 1920. Witnessing the attack are Dr. Stratham Younger and NYPD detective Jimmy Littlemore, as well as Colette Rousseau, a French scientist Younger met while serving as a field doctor during The Great War. Younger and Littlemore begin their investigation with the usual suspects, Bolsheviks and anarchists, but soon their detective work move overseas and back to the States and the halls of power in Washington D.C. and Wall Street. Younger finds his affection growing for Colette, but her broken heart keeps her at arm's length and her kidnapping threatens her welfare. Jed Rubenfeld's novel has received positive reviews with USA Today saying, "Rubenfeld's novel is brilliantly concocted and more than just a little eerie. The fictional and actual events surrounding the 1920 bombing are as relevant today as they were nearly a century ago."
