Product Details


Praise for Property of Blood

“The exquisite sensibility of Magdalen Nabb’s police procedurals has all to do with the feeling of displacement that haunts her sensitively observed characters . . . Although Nabb sees beauty in the grand palazzi of Florence and the green hills of Tuscany, she finds meaning in the empty landscapes people walk alone.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“Credible, classy and compelling, this is crime fiction at its best.”
The Sunday Times

“Elegant in style and elegant of mind . . . [Nabb] is a fine writer with a sharp intelligence and deep sensitivity to human pain and frailty.”
—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Before Dibdin’s Aurelio Zen or Leon’s Guido Brunetti, there was Magdalen Nabb’s Salvatore Guarnaccia . . . Fans of crime Italian style who don’t know this series are in for a treat.”

“Once again employing the pared-down skills of a Simenon, Nabb’s 11th outing for Florence’s Marshal Salvatore Guarnaccia demonstrates that the carabinieri’s best investigative technique is silence . . . Well-written and emotionally acute.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Does not disappoint . . . Nabb is a superlative writer whose low-key protagonist carries the investigation forward flawlessly and without pretention.”
—Reviewing the Evidence
