9780099443360: Some Bitter Taste

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 above a long-standing Florentine antiquities shop 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 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-

Review:

‘Guarnaccia continues to impress as the most convincingly human of modern detectives and his creator as a writer of deep and rare dimension.’ -- Observer

‘Magdalen Nabb is magnificent on the medieval pageantry and sinister facades of her adopted Florence’ -- Sunday Times

‘Magdalen Nabb’s books are set in a Florence so vividly brought to life that I long to go back there after reading each one.’ -- Sunday Telegraph

From the Publisher:

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.
