More books in this series available upon request.
When Auntie Poldi finds a body in a vineyard, she sets out to solve another murder--with the Mafia nipping at her heels--in "another wine-snortingly funny entry"* in the national bestselling series. (*People Magazine) "Long may she reign."-- Kirkus Reviews (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."
