Perfect for fans of Alexander McCall Smith and Andrea Camilleri - the second Auntie Poldi adventure, in which Poldi tastes a murder weapon, finds a body in a vineyard and once again makes herself unpopular in the pursuit of justice....
Wine and murder - nothing is more likely to rouse Auntie Poldi's love of the chase. Still relishing the notoriety from her spectacular resolution of the Candela case, Poldi is alive to the faintest whiff of criminality.
What to others might seem a series of misfortunes - the water supply cut off, a poisoned dog - is clearly, to Poldi, an escalation: the Mafia have had her in their sights ever since she solved Valentino's murder.
Poldi has tasted blood. No-one is above suspicion. And trouble will surely follow....
