Death threats against local pharmacist Arturo Manno come as no surprise to his pals, who know him as a womanizer in his tiny town. They do not take Manno’s warnings seriously until he and his companion Dr. Antonio Roscio are slain out hunting one early morning. The father and two brothers of a 16-year-old girl who allegedly had connections with Manno are under suspicion. Professor Laurana, who saw one of the extortion letters, does not believe these illiterates from a dilapidated area are guilty since the letters of the anonymous notes were formed using cuttings from the Osservatore Romano, a Vatican daily with few local readers. He asks his lawyer buddy Rosello to look after the convicts while he conducts his own investigation, which is partly driven by his hidden love for Luisa Roscio, the widow of one of the slain victims. His track leads him to Palermo, but he soon understands that Luisa Roscio does not share his sentiments and that his investigative work is futile. He is murdered and his body disappears shortly after his rejection by Luisa. Life in his native hamlet goes on as usual, thanks in part to the tight relationship between Luisa Roscio and the lawyer Rosello. [wiki]
