Product Details


Praise for Some Bitter Taste

“Although [the Marshal] is exquisitely attuned to the changeable moods of his city and infinitely patient about the vagaries of its citizens, he often feels himself a hopeless outsider from Sicily. That estrangement is what makes Guarnaccia a compassionate champion of the many foreign victims.”
—The New York Times

“Fans of George Simenon’s Inspector Maigret will find much to like in Nabb’s twelfth police procedural . . . [Nabb possesses] elegant style and sensitivity to character.”
Publishers Weekly

“Surprising plot twists . . . Strongly recommended for readers who like sophisticated, literate mysteries in foreign settings.”
Library Journal

“The self-effacing carbinieri marshal is among the genre’s most appealing cops.”

Praise for Magdalen Nabb

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.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer
