“A coupe de maitre, as we say in French... One of the tastiest books I have read for years.”
—Georges Simenon
“Magdalen Nabb is so good she's awesome.
Philadelphia Inquirer
“Neatly plotted and well written. It is a more than sparkling read.
Times Literary Supplement
“This elegant series, which began in 1981 with Death of an Englishman . . . is set in Florence, a city that glows in the Tuscan sun. . . . [His] sense of estrangement accounts for Guarnaccia’s special perspective on strangers, those ‘innocents’ among the living and the dead.”
The New York Times Book Review
“The richest mystery here, however, is Florence itself, whose intricate politics and class structure Nabb parses with precision and wit.”
The Washington Post
