In an ancient chapel in an ancient land, a crone screeches a warning: "Beware the touch of Job--he's cursed!" 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 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, witchcraft, 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 tradition of Italian mysteries by Magdalen Nabb, Andrea Camilleri, and Donna Leon--but with a twist. Part whodunit, part ghost story, The Marshal of the Borgo is a very unusual paranormal mystery by a recent Derringer Award Winner.
