The Monster of Florence is the first book that I have read by Nabb, and I found that I really enjoyed the lead character of Marshal Guarnaccia. Guarnaccia is well developed in the book, and I enjoyed seeing how this character handled this case which was complicated because of the circumstances surrounding it. I enjoyed the twists and turns that Guarnaccia faced as he tried to really solve the case rather than following the pack. I also enjoyed the side story with Marco Landini, a young man the detective met on a previous case. While I do read mysteries and thrillers, this particular book was a bit too dark for my taste however I would be willing to give this series another chance since I liked the main character.
Received a copy of The Monster of Florence through Goodreads in exchange for an honest review.
