Review quote

Praise for Magdalen Nabb
"It takes a writer as good as Magdalen Nabb to remind us how subtle the art of the mystery can be."
--"The New York Times
"
"The late Magdalen Nabb never wrote a bad book . . . She's well worth discovering by a new generation of readers." "
"--The Globe and Mail"
"
"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

About Magdalen Nabb

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.
