Synopsis

Synopsis

The marshal must leave his snug world at the Pitti Palace to seek a criminal in the shadowy haunts of prostitutes, pimps, and tricks. No one believes that he can navigate in this milieu, much less identify a killer, but once again he confounds their expectations.

Praise for The Marshal's Own Case

“ The lore and mystique of male transvestite lifestyles in Florence . . . The marshal takes the case that no one wants, a situation underscoring the novel’s theme of unloved and troubled children.”
Publishers Weekly

“Among the genre’s most appealing cops.”
Booklist

“Surpasses the best of Simenon.”
Kirkus Reviews

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
