Mario Giordano – Auntie Poldi and the Vineyards of Etna


A Man Called Ove meets Inspector Montalbano, Auntie Poldi leaves no stone unturned in her quest for answers. 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….

The second story about Auntie Poldi is just plain fun and doesnt suffer from sophomore slump. The story continues to follow Auntie Poldis life in Sicily and includes familiar characters from the first book while adding new faces. The narrator convincingly voices the different players. Madcap decisions and escapades are combined with character growth. Undoubtedly neighboring drivers wondered what I was laughing at during my gridlocked commute yesterday. Im looking forward to the third book – hope its released by Audible very soon.
