Description
When Auntie Poldi finds a body in a vineyard, she sets out to solve another murder--with the Mafia nipping at her heels--in the next adventure from this national bestselling "smash series." ( People Magazine) "There's a new star in the mystery firmament, and her name is Auntie Poldi." -- Alan Bradley "Long may she reign." - Kirkus (starred review) When Prosecco‑loving Auntie Poldi retired to Sicily from Germany, she never dreamed her tranquil days would be interrupted by murder. But Sicily had other plans, and Poldi found herself honor‑bound to solve the disappearance of her beloved (and cute) handyman. Now she's finally ready for some peace and quiet--interrupted by romantic encounters with handsome Chief Inspector Montana, of course--when the water supply to her neighborhood is cut off and a dear friend's dog is poisoned, telltale signs that a certain familial organization is flexing its muscles. Poldi knows there will be no resolution without her help. She soon finds a body in a vineyard, tangles with the Mafia, and yet again makes herself unpopular in the pursuit of justice. But once wine and murder mix, how could she possibly stay away? This is a sexy and thrilling follow‑up to Mario Giordano's debut novel, Auntie Poldi and the Sicilian Lions, hailed by Adriana Trigiani as "an explosion of color [and] a celebration of the palette of Italian life and the Sicilian experience in its specificity, warmth and drama."
