The Marshal Guarnaccia Mystery Series

Death of a Dutchman

JACKET NOTES:  The death of the jeweler in his Florence apartment had all the earmarks of suicide, but Marshal Guarnaccia smelled murder...
In the course of paying a kindly visit to an elderly recluse, Marshal Salvatore Guarnaccia of the Florentine carabinieri discovers a dying man next door. A barbiturate overdose and glass-slashed hands suggest suicide, but the Dutch jeweler's last words, oddly, are "It wasn't her."
Puzzled and suspicious, the dedicated Marshal must fight his way through official red tape, hordes of tourists, the soggy July heat, and the dead Dutchman's troubled past in order to reach the truth.
