The Marshal Guarnaccia Mystery Series

Some Bitter Taste

JACKET NOTES:  When it comes to motives for crime, the past can never be forgotten.
Sara Hirsch is an elderly spinster who lives in the flat in which she was raised above a Florentine antiquities shop. Frightened, she calls on Marshal Guarnaccia for help, sure that strangers have been in her apartment. The marshal is preoccupied with another investigation, and before he can respond, she is found dead.
His search for the villains who precipitated her death brings him into confrontation with Jewish refugees from fascism and with English expatriates, including the heir to the elegant Villa L'Uliveto.
