A collection of stories by

 
 
A collection of Sciascia's stories, brief and haunting: the realist tradition at its best. In one tale, a couple of men talk, cynically yet earnestly, about the etymology of the word 'mafia'; the reader comes to realise that he is eavesdropping on the mustings of a mafia boss and his underling.

Genre: Cozy Mystery
