Publisher's Summary

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....

When can we expect books 3 and 4 in English?

I've really enjoyed the first two, but the next two are only available in German. I should be better at that language, but am not capable enough to enjoy listening to a book in that language. I look forward to the translations.

Great Story!

I love Auntie Poldi! She is headstrong and full of character and has quite the view of life. I laughed out loud several times while listening to this book. Very entertaining and a great story. When is the next book being released ???

More Poldi, please

Love Aunti Poldi’s quirky nephew and friends almost as much as the lady herself. Both books have been rollicking good reads, and I know a thing or two about rollicking good reads. Probably, I am not the only one who wants more Poldi stories. Soon, if you please.

Auntie Poldi Doesn’t Disappoint

The second story about Auntie Poldi is just plain fun and doesn’t suffer from sophomore slump. The story continues to follow Auntie Poldi’s 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. I’m looking forward to the third book - hope it’s released by Audible very soon.
