DEATH IN AUTUMN

The carabinieri referred to it as ‘The foreigner in a fur coat job.’ When the woman was fished out of the Arno she was wearing nothing under the fur coat except jewellery. A crazy foreigner who had lived for years as a recluse in a hotel. Not a very interesting case. Nor was the nth death by heroin overdose, a boy whose body lay rotting in a ditch until people in the grand houses nearby complained about the smell. The spectacular theft of a diamond on the Ponte Vecchio is much more fascinating but a thief of that calibre is far too clever for the marshal and by the time he understands what is going on, the damage has already been done.

‘The best mystery news in ages is that Soho is restoring to the canon Magdalen Nabb and her tremendous creation, Marshal Salvatore Guarnaccia of the Italian police in Florence.’
Chicago Tribune.
