DEATH IN SPRINGTIME

The third Guarnaccia mystery. Two foreign students are kidnapped on a snowy morning in Florence. One is released but doesn’t want to talk. The usual suspects are the Sardinian shepherds living in the Tuscan hills but it isn’t quite so simple. The life of the rich foreign girl and the machinations of some greedy Tuscans make at least one Sardinian shepherd seem as much a victim as a criminal.

‘It is a novel to savour, even more so than the first two. It is the first time I’ve seen kidnapping treated in such a direct and credible way.’
George Simenon.
