Praise for the Marshal Guarnaccia Series: It takes a writer as good as Magdalen Nabb to remind us of how subtle the art of the mystery can be. . . . Nabb has Simenon's knack.-The New York Times Book Review If you didn't make it to Florence this summer, don't despair. . . . There's a new Marshal Guarnaccia investigation.-Chicago Tribune Surpasses the best of Simenon.-Kirkus Reviews There is no other series quite like the Guarnaccia stories.-The Washington Post Book World Daniela is a quiet single mother studying for a doctorate in chemistry. She rarely goes out, so her murder in her bedroom at the family's new villa seems inexplicable. It is true that her mother, who appears to be an alcoholic; her younger sister, who has had mental problems; and her father, who has made his money running nightclubs and is probably involved in the international sex trade, are not your average home-loving Italian nuclear family, but what can she have done to be singled out for slaughter? And why has the prosecutor asked specifically for Marshal Guarnaccia to head the investigation? This is the fourteenth book in this acclaimed series. Magdalen Nabb, who was born and educated in England, lived and wrote in Florence, where she died on August 18, 2007.
