Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It is so good to walk with [Magdalen Nabb] through the animated streets of Florence, with its carabinieri, its ordinary people, its little trattorie, and even its noisy tourists. It’s all so alive, you can hear the noises, smell the smells, see that morning mist on the fast flowing Arno…Bravissimo!” Georges Simenon
“Good plot, well-concealed clues, and the whole put together with wit and elegance.” Daily Mail (London)
“Nabb’s account of the details is freshly horrifying, as are many of the characters who people the book. The vicious, incestuous suspect is…so vivid on the page that the reader feels the need of a shower after each of his many appearances…One of the many wonderful things about this book is the impossibility of distinguishing between fact and fiction, but that is, after all, the nature of justice in Italy.” Donna Leon
“A haunting thriller where past and present collide, where ambition brutalizes those who have most need of compassion, and where lies are often more credible that truth” Val McDermid
“Credible, classy, and compelling, this is crime fiction at its best.” Sunday Times (London)
“A brilliant detective story.” Evening Standard (London)
