Overview

Two foreign girls are abducted from a Florence piazza in broad daylight. The unusual March snowfall has distracted everyone, even Marshal Guarnaccia, who has trouble piecing together what he has seen.

One of the girls, a Norwegian university student, turns up in a village in the Chianti, concussed and wounded but alive. She says the kidnappers have released her to propose a ransom for the other victim, a wealthy American. But the marshal thinks she’s lying.

The typical kidnapping suspects are the Sardinian shepherds in the Tuscan hills, but this isn’t so simple. The life of the rich foreign girl and the machinations of greed make at least one Sardinian shepherd seem as much a victim as a criminal.

Meet the Author

Magdalen Nabb was born in Lancashire and trained as a potter. In 1975, she left her old life behind and moved with her son to Florence, where she knew no one and even though she didn't speak any Italian, but where she fell in love with the local setting. Her Marshal Guarnaccia series, which has been translated into ten languages, was inspired by a real local marshal she befriended in the tiny pottery town of Montelupo Fiorentino. Nabb wrote children's fiction and crime novels until her death in 2007.
