Michele Ferrara, Fiction, Crime & mystery, Classic crime

Frustrated by the lack of progress, Chief Superintendent Michele Ferrara, head of Florence s elite Squadra Mobile, decides to step in. Because toxins were discovered in the girl s body, many assumed that she died of a self-inflicted drugs overdose. But Ferrara quickly realises that the truth is darker than that: he believes that the girl was murdered.

And when he delves deeper, there are many aspects to the case that convince Ferrara that the girl s death is part of a sinister conspiracy-a conspiracy that has its roots in the very foundations of Tuscan society...

Praise for A Death In Tuscany

  • Michele Guittari's credentials are good. So it turns out is his writing, which is taut and sinewy, weaving a whodunit with grit (beware the faint-hearted) and atmosphere. This one starts in the underbelly of Florentine society, but sends tremors all the way to the top. - Australian Women's Weekly

  • The plot is complicated and clever...the journey is amusing, it has its moments of pain, fear, pleasure. - Canberra Times
