Every August, Florence shimmers in the summer heat. But this year the heatwave is fiercer than usual, and the city's inhabitants have fled to the cool of the hills and beaches of the surrounding countryside. So it is no surprise that amidst the shrubbery of a normally busy roundabout, a corpse lies unnoticed, bloating in the humid air. Sandro Cellini will not be joining the crowds of holidaymakers this year. The former policeman turned private detective has a case: a man who seems to have vanished into thin air - leaving his pregnant young wife alone in the city. Meanwhile, bank teller Roxana Delfino is also stuck in the city for the season, with nothing to do but worry for her aging mother and puzzle over the disappearance of one her regular clients.

An excellent book and series! See my comments for Darkness Descending. This is the first book in the series and introduces the very endearing and real characters. You will be hooked. After reading the fourth book, I feel that I personally know them. Author is literate, writing style and plots are enjoyable, setting is unusual - Florence - and author describes and knows it well. I highly recommend the book and series.
