After her mother's death, Rita decides to quit her job and show up at the home of her aristocratic but cash-strapped relatives, the Count and Countess Casati, in Assisi. It is a while before they realize-to their chagrin-that Rita has come to stay.

Now Alessandro Cenni, a commissario in the state police of Umbria, must unearth the secrets of the Casati family and their circle if he is to discover who killed this unwanted houseguest, and why . . .|
