16th century Italy, deep in the Tuscan countryside a long-held feud between two aristocratic families ends in tragedy leaving only one young girl alive. Having barely escaped with her life, she vows to survive at all costs...

Years later, amidst the winding streets and majestic facades of Florence, two murders are not all they seem. As Onorio Celavini, commander of the Medici police force, investigates he is horrified to find a personal connection to the crimes, and a conspiracy lurking beyond. The secrets of his past threaten to spill out and Celavini is forced to revisit the traumatic memories hidden deep within him to lay the ghosts of history to rest.

Poignant, brutal and compelling, The Phoenix of Florence is a richly told and cleverly crafted tale of a struggle for identity and a battle for justice in an Italy besieged by war.

Review:

"Kazan has written a gripping depiction of life in 15th-century Tuscany. With a protagonist whose transformation over the course of the book is compelling and a mystery that keeps the pages flying and hearts racing, this novel is recommended for fans of Sarah Dunant."--Library Journal
