Overview

Death of an Englishman (Marshal Guarnaccia Series #1) by Magdalen Nabb

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.

A fantastic, deceivingly subtle, often witty literary crime novel from one of the mystery genre's greatest authors. A great find for any Donna Leon readers or lovers of crime novels that do more than posit a who-done-it with no attention to prose or style.

Perhaps I was distracted at the time; however, I plodded through this book thoroughly confused.  By the end  of the story I no longer cared 'whodunnit'.
