Description
Published in Europe in 1996 but unavailable in the United States until this edition, this tenth Marshal Guarnaccia mystery by Magdalen Nabb is based on a chilling real-life crime spree. The affable Marshal feels a bit out of his league when he's asked to investigate the newly re-opened case of a serial killer who targeted unmarried couples and terrorized Florence for two decades. He is truly horrified by the case, and his malaise is only deepened when his family leaves for Sicily without him. Worse, Guarnaccia must report to a prosecutor named Simonetti, who once drove an innocent man to suicide in his blind quest for a conviction.

"The late Magdalen Nabb never wrote a bad book.... She's well worth discovering by a new generation of readers.... [This] is one of the best of her works and readers can revel in the streets, sounds, smells of Florence."Globe and Mail (Toronto)

"Nabb's death, in 2007, left a serious hole in the roster of A-list mystery writers, and the publication of a posthumous novel starring her series hero, Marshal Guarnaccia, of the Florence Carabinieri, is a welcome event for all fans of international crime fiction."Booklist
