In 1985 three students were murdered there, their bodies savaged, limbs severed and strewn by a killer who was never found.Salinger, a New Yorker, is far from home, and these Italian mountains, where his wife was born, harbour a close-knit, tight-lipped community whose mistrust of outsiders can turn ugly.
