Book Description

Magdalen Nabb's latest in her acclaimed series of Marshal Guarnaccia mysteries. Nabb does for Florence what Donna Leon does for Venice, showing us the murky realities behind the stunning tourist exteriors.

Frightened, she calls Marshal Guarnaccia for help, sure that strangers have been in her apartment. The marshal knows she is a lonely old woman but he is preoccupied with an investigation into an Albanian prostitution ring. Before he can respond to her latest alarm, she is found dead. The marshal's search for the villains who precipitated her death brings him into confrontation with the past, with Jewish refugees from fascism, and with English expatriates, including the ailing heir to the elegant Villa L'Uliveto, Sir Christopher Wrothesly...
