Duration: 8 hours 41 minutes
When the bodies of two men are found shockingly posed in the garden of an elderly countess, Captain Natalia Monte of the Carabiniere is assigned the case. Soon she finds herself shuttling between Naples’ decadent art galleries and violent criminal underworld. If she is to succeed in solving the heinous crime, Natalia must deal with not only her own complicated past and allegiances but also those of the city as a whole. A Few Drops of Blood is a riveting and poetic exploration of the violence that lurks in the heart of beauty.
“Terrific…Memorable characters boost this atmospheric mystery redolent of the city’s art, architecture, and the détente that permits the Carabinieri and the Camorra to both operate in a state of tense and fragile peace.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
