THE MARSHAL’S OWN CASE

Everybody hated Lulu. Lulu is found dead, sawn in pieces and dumped above the Piazzale Michelangelo. Parents and children are the recurring theme which the marshal can’t escape, especially because of the breakup of his relationshp with one of his own sons. He is very distressed by that and by the case which nobody else wants to touch and which takes him reluctantly into a frightening world of the night. Everybody hated Lulu until the marshal found the murderer, the one man who didn’t.

‘The exquisite sensibility of Magdalen Nabb’s police proceedurals has all to do with the feeling of displacement that haunts her sensitively observed characters.’
Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review.
