Praise for Vita Nuova

“A final reminder of why [Nabb] is irreplaceable among English speaking novelists who write mysteries with Italian locales. Like the 13 previous novels in this series set in Florence and featuring Marshal Guarnaccia, Vita Nuova reflects the sensibility of someone who sees much, speaks softly and takes pity on strangers.”
 —The New York Times Book Review

“Has the ability to impart the tremor of someone walking over your grave . . . The world of crime fiction [is] poorer for the loss of Magdalen Nabb.”
The Boston Phoenix

“Deceptively rich . . . As always, Nabb wins us over with the Colombo-like Guarnaccia’s mixture of surface bumbling and subtle shrewdness, mixed with a heightened sensitivity to both everyday woes and heart-wrenching tragedy . . . Nabb writes more traditional, Simenon-style mysteries . . . This series will be missed by all devotees of the Italian crime novel.”
Booklist, Starred Review


Praise for Magdalen Nabb


“Exquisite.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Every word should be savored.”
Washington Post Book World

“The best mystery news in ages is that Soho is restoring to the canon Magdalen Nabb and her tremendous creation, Marshal Guarnaccia of the Italian Police in Florence.”
Chicago Tribune

“Nabb continues to extend conventions of the police procedural to suit her own intriguing vision and purpose.”
Philadelphia Inquirer
