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 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 The Marshal's Own Case "Like Simenon's Inspector Maigret, [Marshal Guarnaccia] impresses us as a watchful, thoughtful man who is wise enough to learn from whatever he sees of human nature . . . [Nabb] writes compassionately on the subject of alienated parents and children and reveals yet another facet of her complex hero." --The New York Times Book Review "A nonsensationalist's view of Florence's sexual buyers and sellers, with Nabb's usual Maigret-like touches, clear-headedness, and simple plotting." --Kirkus Reviews "Nabb offers a distinctly foreign flavor, approachable protagonist, and offbeat list of colorful characters." --Library Journal "Among the genre's most appealing cops." --Booklist Praise for Magdalen Nabb "It takes a writer as good as Magdalen Nabb to remind us how subtle the art of the mystery can be." --The New York Times "The late Magdalen Nabb never wrote a bad book . . . She's well worth discovering by a new generation of readers." --The Globe and Mail "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
