After his last case, among the gentle hills and lush vineyards of Piedmont, Inspector Zen finally receives the order he has been dreading all his professional life: his next posting is to Sicily, home of the Mafia. The gruesome discovery of an unidentified, decomposed corpse sealed in a railway wagon on a disused siding marks the beginning of Zen's most difficult and dangerous case. Set against the backdrop of the 3000-year-old city of Catania, in the shadow of the smouldering volcano of Etna, Blood Rain finds Aurelio Zen at his most desperate and driven...

Blood Rain is the seventh book in the Aurelio Zen series of novels by Michael Dibdin and was originally published in 1999. Michael Kitchen reads this complete, full-length novel which consists of 8 hours spread over 8 CD.

Zen is posted to Sicily, Italy in a liaison position. When a badly decomposed body is discovered in a railway carriage it looks like it may be the missing son of one of the Mafia families. However the Limoni family are claiming that it's not their son. As Zen investigates he uncovers secrets that some would prefer best left well alone.

Michael Kitche's reading of this novel is engaging and will keep you listening until the very end. A well craft tale that doesn't disappoint.
