"The likes of Donna Leon, Magdalen Nabb and David Hewson are joined by Grace Brophy, author of an outstanding new series featuring handsome Commissario Alessandro Cenni."--The Denver Post

After Jarvina's retirement, she rented a house in Paradiso, a small Umbrian village where she was later found murdered. Commissario Alessandro Cenni learns that the motive may derive from WWII Venice and the forgery of millions of British pounds.

Grace Brophy grew up in New Jersey and now divides her time between New York, Maine, and Umbria. She is the author of The Last Enemy, the first novel in the Commissario Cenni series.

Reviews

Praise for Deadly Paradise Winner of the BookPage "Tip of the Icepick" Award "The likes of Donna Leon, Magdalen Nabb and David Hewson are joined by Grace Brophy, author of an outstanding new series featuring handsome Commissario Alessandro Cenni of the state police." --The Denver Post "Brophy not only has found in Umbria a fresh setting for Italian crime fiction, but she has also created a character in Cenni, who combines the beguiling personal flaws, slumbering sex appeal, and mysterious detachment of David Hewson's Leo Falcone and Nic Costa." --Booklist "Brophy has a fine budding series here, with winning characters and settings that include Venice and Murano as well as Umbria, and the ongoing Chiara subplot will have readers anticipating the next installment." --Library Journal Praise for Grace Brophy "It's not often that an author's first book wins the coveted Tip of the Ice Pick Award." --BookPage "Believable narrative twists combined with excellent characterization, rich dialogue and a finely depicted setting." --Publishers Weekly "A terrific Italian historical police procedural." --Midwest Book Review
