Quite an unusual Aurelio Zen novel. Doctore Zen ends up on the run, when targeted by Sicilian gangs, and cannot tell who to trust. Corruption runs through the culture - an interesting look at Sicilian society, at least as represented in this book. ...
only thing that makes the job palatable—and takes his mind off routine details like the rotting body found in a remote train car—is that Zen's adopted daughter, Carla, is also in town. But life becomes precarious for Carla when she stumbles upon some information she'd be better off not knowing and befriends a local magistrate on the Mafia's most wanted list. What ensues is a breakneck plot of amazing complexity that culminates in a stunning finale. Blood Rain, emotionally gripping and defiantly original, is surely one of Dibdin's finest works.From the Trade Paperback edition.
