Publisher Comments:

Florence, summer 1963. Inspector Bordelli is one of the few detectives left in the deserted city. He spends his days on routine work and his nights tormented by the heat and mosquitoes.With the help of his young protégé, the victim's eccentric brother, and a semi-retired petty thief, the inspector begins a murder investigation. Each suspect has a solid alibi, but there is something that doesn't quite add up...


A new crime series full of Italian flavor - the first novel in the Inspector Bordelli series, set in 1960s Florence.

This drew me into the location. There is a dinner scene I wanted badly to join in the festivities. This is the best mystery I read in 2012 out of 67 books. Too many others are predictable. I hope to read more by Marco Vichi
