Synopses & Reviews
Magdalen Nabb was born in Lancashire and trained as a potter. In 1975, she left her old life behind and moved with her son to Florence, where she knew no one and even though she didn't speak any Italian, but where she fell in love with the local setting. Her Marshal Guarnaccia series, which has been translated into ten languages, was inspired by a real local marshal she befriended in the tiny pottery town of Montelupo Fiorentino. Nabb wrote children's fiction and crime novels until her death in 2007.
"Every word should be savored." (The Washington Post Book World)
"Elegant." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
The kidnapping for ransom of a beautiful American-born contessa poses Marshal Guarnaccia's gravest challenge.
