THE MARSHAL AT THE VILLA TORRINI

An English historian lies dead in the bath in her converted Tuscan barn. Her husband lies in a drunken stupor in the bedroom next door. The marshal has a great deal of patience with human frailty but this woman’s death is made all the more poignant for him by it’s being her birthday, that day, and he really dislikes her husband so that, once he understands what has happened, he sets a trap of which he probably ought to be ashamed.

‘A fine writer with a sharp intelligence and deep sensitivity to human pain and frailty.’
Publishers Weekly, New York.
