I so enjoyed Villa Triste ( see below) that I looked up on the library catalogue to see what else she has written. This was her first novel. It really is very good and I have purchased copies for our reading groups for this title as well. It is a mystery thriller set in Florence, I cannot say very much without spoiling the plot. Suffice to say a newly married woman is attacked by a serial killer in the Boboli Gardens and as a result she is permanently scarred both physically and emotionally, her husband is murdered. The evident murderer is apprehended. A few years later she returns to Florence from America to visit her lover and discovers that there is a copycat on the loose and she may well be a target as she begins investigations of her own and women she knows begin to go missing......... excellent!
