Based on a chilling true crime, The Monster of Florence follows the reopening of a cold case -- a serial killer who targeted unmarried couples and terrorized Florence for two decades. Marshal Guarnaccia's job with the carabinieri -- the local Florentine police -- usually involves restoring stolen handbags to grateful old ladies and lost cameras to bewildered tourists. So when he is assigned to work with the police to try to track down a vicious serial killer, he feels out of his league. To make matters worse, the prosecutor he must report to is Simonetti, the same man he knows drove an innocent man to suicide several years earlier in his blind quest for a conviction. The Marshal can't let the stress of the case get to him if he wants to make sure justice is upheld.

It is just before Christmas and the marshal wants to go South to spend the holiday with his wife and family, but first he must recover from the flu (which has left the Florentine caribinieri short-handed) and also solve a murder. A seemingly respectable retired Englishman, living in a flat on the Via Maggio near the Santa Trinita bridge, was shot in the back during the night. He was well-connected and Scotland Yard has despatched two officers to "assist" the Italians in solving the crime. But it is the marshal, a quiet observer, not an intellectual, who manages to figure out what happened, and why.

In the picturesque Tuscan hill town of Scandicci, the body of a girl is discovered, lying by the edge of the woods. The local police investigate the case-but after a week, they still haven't even identified her, let alone got to the bottom of how she died. Frustrated by the lack of progress, Chief Superintendent Michele Ferrara, head of Florence's elite Squadra Mobile, decides to step in. Because toxins were discovered in the girl's body, many assumed that she died of a self-inflicted drugs overdose. But Ferrara quickly realises that the truth is darker than that: he believes that the girl was murdered. And when he delves deeper, there are many aspects to the case that convince Ferrara that the girl's death is part of a sinister conspiracy-a conspiracy that has its roots in the very foundations of Tuscan society...

Praise for the Marshal Guarnaccia series: "It takes a writer as good as Magdalen Nabb to remind us how subtle the art of the mystery can be. . . . Nabb has Simenon's knack."-The New York Times Book Review "Nabb's uncanny portrayal of Florence, its pace, scents, sounds, the rhythm of its language . . . is so vivid."-The Boston Globe "If you didn't make it to Florence this summer, don't despair. It was probably too crowded anyway-and there's a new Marshal Guarnaccia investigation to keep you abreast of the sights, smells, tastes, and traffic problems of that great Italian city."-Chicago Tribune "There is no other series quite like the Guarnaccia stories . . . in their moody charms. . . . His tender heart casts a wide net; people trust him, talk to him, seem to feel he is more prescient than he knows he is. The result is a narrative in which the marshal serves as a mirror to the world around him."-The Washington Post Book World "Strongly recommended for readers who like sophisticated, literate mysteries in foreign settings."-Library Journal The body of a woman has been found half-submerged in an ornamental fish pond high up in Florence's Boboli gardens. At first, the woman cannot be identified; only her skull remains. The marshal must use her clothing and a shoe to trace her. She turns out to be a young Japanese woman apprenticed to one of Florence's legendary custom shoemakers, crotchety old Peruzzi. Could he have killed his protégé? Or did jealousy drive his other apprentice to murder? The neighbors have seen Akiko with a lover-a brilliant young carabinieri-who has disappeared. Has he fled to avoid arrest? The marshal must go to Rome to complete his investigation. When he returns to Florence he can identify the killer, but can he bring him to justice?
