Little girls keep showing up dead--with bite marks on their bellies--in 1960s-era Florence, and world-weary 50-something Inspector Bordelli is tasked with finding their killer. This atmospheric novel really takes you back to a specific time and place that is palpably post-war 20 years after the end of World War II, with obvious scars remaining on both the physical landscape and on the psyches of police, witnesses and criminals alike.  Like many of his fictional Italian colleagues, Bordelli spends a fair amount of time sitting around and contemplating, eating spaghetti and drinking wine, but he gets there in the end.  Check Our Catalog
