's review

really liked it

This is narrated by the nephew of Poldi, a Bavarian widow living in Sicily. Poldi is telling him the story as it happens, giving it this fun element like The Princess Bride where the story is interrupted sometimes in a comical way so that 1) the nephew can talk about his failed writing attempts and 2) him and Poldi can quibble.

Poldi is a speaks-her-mind-drinks-too-much-if-you're-in-her-way-move-quickly fantastic character who is determined to solve a murder in a place she doesn't know that well. I loved Poldi, and if this becomes a series of books I'm in!
