Translation of: La stagione della caccia.
"When a stranger arrives in Vigata, 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 wan who was murdered many years before.
Fofo opens his own pharmacy in Vigata and his remedies are sought be many. But he soon finds himself entangled with the local nobility: Don Filippo - a philandering marquis set on producing a new heir, his long-suffering wife Donna Matilde, his eccentric elderly father Don Federico, his son Federico and beautiful daughter 'Ntonto above all. But it won't be long before death visits Vigata - and the town and its most noble family will never be the same again...
Both a delightful murder mystery and a comic novel of huge brio, fired be love and obsession and filled with memorable characters, Hunting Season is the latest captivating book published in English from the bestselling author of the Inspector Montalbano series." - Back cover
