Death in Springtime

A Marshal Guarnaccia mystery by Magdalen Nabb


When a wealthy American student is kidnapped in Florence with one of her college friends, the Carabinieri move swiftly to try to find her before she comes to any harm.
English-speaking Lieutenant Bacci tries to win the confidence of the girl’s friend after she is released by the kidnappers and found wandering in the countryside.
And Captain Maestrangelo and a new Substitute Prosecutor organise a massive operation to search the part of the Tuscan hills where the confused girl was discovered.
But it is Marshal Guarnaccia’s enquiries on his own patch near Palazzo Pitti, the area of the city where the American girl had been staying, that yield the clues that eventually lead to the kidnappers.
Magdalen Nabb tells the story cleverly, paving the way towards an outcome that is completely unexpected.
The story begins on the first of March with snow falling in Florence, which provides a big distraction for the local people at the time the young women are kidnapped.
And Death in Springtime ends with such a surprise that it will give the reader something to think about long after they have finished the last page.
