1473661943AUNTIE POLDI AND THE FRUITS OF THE LORD by Mario Giordano

Still basking in the glory of solving a murder in her first adventure (Auntie Poldi and the Sicilian Lions), Poldi doesn’t hesitate to investigate when her neighbor’s dog turns up dead at the same time as the water to Poldi’s house has suddenly been cut off.  In Poldi’s mind, there’s no doubt that the Mafia are involved.  And that’s only the first conclusion that she jumps to in this hilarious second installment.

Poldi is brash, irreverent, and wickedly funny.  She’s unapologetic about her pursuit of Commissario Vito Montana or when her sleuthing disrupts his investigations.  Poldi is a breath of fresh air and a force to be reckoned with.  A more unusual heroine, you won’t find.
