A Marshal Guarnaccia Novel: Some Bitter Taste

A Marshal Guarnaccia Novel: Some Bitter Taste by Magdalen Nabb

29 / 12 / 2003

When it comes to motives for crime, the past can never be forgotten.

Sara Hirsch is a nervous elderly spinster who still lives in the flat in Florence in which she was raised. Frightened, she calls Marshal Guarnaccia for help, sure that strangers have been in her apartment. The Marshal knows she is a lonely and frightened 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 . . .

Magdalen Nabb's new Marshal Guarnaccia mystery sees the Marshal facing unsettling moral issues and a crisis of confidence in his judgement in an - as ever - stunningly observed Florence.
