About the Author

Magdalen Nabb was born in Lancashire and trained as a potter. In 1975, she left her old life behind and moved with her son to Florence, where she knew no one and even though she didn't speak any Italian, but where she fell in love with the local setting. Her Marshal Guarnaccia series, which has been translated into ten languages, was inspired by a real local marshal she befriended in the tiny pottery town of Montelupo Fiorentino. Nabb wrote children's fiction and crime novels until her death in 2007.

Reviews

Praise for Death of a Dutchman "This elegant series, which began in 1981 with Death of an Englishman . . . is set in Florence, a city that glows in the Tuscan sun . . . [His] sense of estrangement accounts for Guarnaccia's special perspective on strangers, those 'innocents' among the living and the dead." --The New York Times Book Review "The richest mystery here, however, is Florence itself, whose intricate politics and class structure Nabb parses with precision and wit." --Washington Post Book World "Crime fiction at its best." --Sunday Times "Lean, elegant prose that surpasses the best of Simenon, along with a puckish view of the Florentines from Guarnaccia's Sicilian perspective." --Kirkus Reviews "Great local atmosphere and rich characterizations." --Publishers Weekly "A superb series . . . [Marshal Guarnaccia is] a working-man's Maigret." --Booklist "Guarnaccia's Florence is a delightful place to visit." --Mystery Scene
