Praise for The Missing Italian Girl
"Pope plots Clarie's search for the missing girl with precision and restraint. The true draw here is her portait of women--and their not-so-equal rights--at the turn of the last century. Wonderfully engaging. Even in the face of senseless limitations, Clarie proves it is possible to find joy, truth--and even oneself."
— O, The Oprah Magazine (Editor's Pick)
"Intrigue, danger and upheaval in old Paris.The plot serves as a vehicle for a tour of the last decade of the 19th century in Paris, of the political and social sensibilities and explosive events that dominated. Pope's deep knowledge of the times and place is abundantly evident."
— The Oregonian
“An unlikely sleuth is drawn into another murder mystery in turn-of-the-century France;Pope's third mystery featuring Clarie (The Blood of Lorraine, 2010, etc.) expertly doles out pieces of its complex plot, a picaresque puzzle with satisfying period flavor.”
