Description:

Praise for Magdalen Nabb: "The best mystery news in ages is that Soho is restoring to the canon Magdalen Nabb and her tremendous creation, Marshal Salvatore Guarnaccia of the Italian police in Florence."-"Chicago Tribune "First rate. Engrossing, artful and completely satisfying. Nabb is a fine writer."-Frank Conroy "Magdalen Nabb is so good she's awesome."-"Philadelphia Inquirer "Nabb is formidable."-"Houston Post Everyone is so distracted by the phenomenon of snow in Florence in March that no one notices two foreign girls being abducted from the piazza at gunpoint in broad daylight. Even Marshal Guarnaccia has trouble piecing together what he has actually seen: tourists in a car holding up a big map, children going to school, a bus, a drug addict on the steps of Santo Spirito church, a single Sardinian bagpiper in a long black shepherd's cloak. One of the girls, a Norwegian university student, turns up in Pontino, a village in the Chianti hills, where she is hospitalized for a concussion, a leg wound and possible pneumonia. She says she has been released by the kidnappers so she can make contact; the other kidnap victim, an American girl, is being held for ransom. But the marshal thinks she's lying. Kidnapping has become a local racket. It is up to him to save the young American and put a stop to a flourishing criminal enterprise.
