The Marshal of the Borgo
A troubled police captain. A teenaged witch. A small town's only hope for vengeance.
Matteo Scarpone is a modern-day Job. A man more sinned against than sinning.
Once a cool-headed logician and the pride of Rome's carabinieri, he's devastated when disaster rocks his world.
He is a lost man. Beaten. Shaken. HAUNTED.
Shunned as an embarrassment, he is exiled to a tiny Italian village in the sticks -- a hamlet, a burg, a borgo.
But in this land of vineyards and olive groves, life is far from idyllic. Murder, greed, and hate taint the soil once tread by the Etruscans.
Now the young captain must unravel a series of murders that pit him against a cynical evil and force him to use a power
-- A GIFT
-- A CURSE
that he has long denied.
The Marshal of the Borgo follows in the grand tradition of diabolically clever Italian mysteries -- but with a fearsome twist. Part whodunit, part ghost story, The Marshal of the Borgo is a most unusual paranormal tale by a recent winner of the Derringer Award for Short Mystery Fiction.
