Summary

The site where the body had been found was within the territory of the provincia di Catania, and hence under the jurisdiction of the authorities of that city. So far, so good. From a bureaucratic point of view, however, the crucial factor was where and when the crime – if indeed it was a crime – had occurred. As all those concerned were soon to learn, none of these points was susceptible of a quick or easy answer.

Zen finally receives the order he has been dreading all his professional life: his next posting to Sicily.

The gruesome discovery of an unidentified, decomposed corpse sealed in a railway wagon marks the beginning of Zen’s most difficult and dangerous murder case. Set against the backdrop of Catania, in the shadow of the smouldering volcano of Etna, Blood Rain is a riveting tale of violence and murder, which reveals Aurelio Zen at his most desperate and driven.

If you enjoyed the Inspector Zen Mystery series you may also like The Last Sherlock Holmes Story, another crime novel by Michael Dibdin.
