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
