Praise

Praise for The Innocent

“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

“[Nabb crafts a] sense of estrangement [that] accounts for Guarnaccia’s special perspective on strangers, those ‘innocents’ among the living and the dead . . . Once a stranger, she knows, always a stranger.”
The New York Times Book Review

“The richest mystery here . . . is Florence itself, whose intricate politics and class structure Nabb parses with precision and wit.”
The Washington Post
