Publisher's Summary

In un castello della Maremma toscana, popolato da una nobiltà tenacemente dedita al nulla e dalla numerosa servitù, arriva un venerdì di giugno del 1895 il baffuto e sornione Pellegrino Artusi. A interrompere le placide giornate che scorrono tra il giardino e la tavola, le chiacchiere e i pettegolezzi, piomba gelido il delitto. In un crescendo di situazioni comico-grottesche, il caso del maggiordomo avvelenato e della schioppettata al barone Romualdo verrà risolto grazie all’acume e alla saggezza dell’Artusi, novello detective.

Funny and smart

I loved hearing about the adventures of Pellegrino Artusi in a funny take on an 1800's mystery novel. As a student of Italian, I appreciate the fact that the reader doesn't speak too fast, so I didn't miss too much... Love the Tuscan accent :)

Fantastico Trio Malvaldi Benvenuti e Artusi ;)

I wish it was possible to translate in other languages the humour, the subtlety and the Tuscan accent. Mi ha fatto sorridere tanto e ridacchiare come la zia zitella Sig.rina Ferro! Grazie!
