Publisher's Summary

Following her mother's untimely and mysterious death, Delia embarks on a voyage of discovery through the streets of her native Naples searching for the truth about her family. A series of mysterious telephone calls leads her to compelling and disturbing revelations about her mother's final days.
This stylish novel from the author of The Days of Abandonment is set in a beguiling but often hostile Naples, whose chaotic, suffocating streets become one of the book's central motifs. A story about mothers and daughters and the complicated knot of lies and emotions that binds them, it is a must-listen.

Puzzled and bewildered

After listening to this novel(and after I had listened to and loved the Naples trilogy), I read the review written by a respected critic in a fine newspaper. He said he ended up tearing the book in half before he finished- a thing he had never done before.
I understand.
Although I “get” the essential premise of the “mystery” I.e. who was my mother? The novel weaves back and forth and so repetitively that I lost the will to care anymore for any of them.
Perhaps I should have gloomily torn the digital audio file in two, but I lost the will to do that too.
