Sicily, 1880. When a stranger arrives in Vigàta, the town’s inhabitants immediately become unsettled. It seems the young man, Fofo, is the son of a local peasant legendary for his home-grown medicines - a man who was murdered many years before.
Fofo opens his own pharmacy in Vigàta, and his remedies are sought by many. But he soon finds himself entangled with Don Filippo, a philandering marchese, and his family.
It won’t be long before death visits Vigàta, and the town and its most noble family will never be the same again....
"For sunny views, explosive characters and a snappy plot constructed with great farcical ingenuity, the writer you want is Andrea Camilleri." (New York Times)
