Summary

In the latest installment of the New York Times bestselling Inspector Montalbano mystery series, Montalbano investigates the death of wealthy accountant Cosimo Barletta in a case involving a string of mistresses and family secrets.

Inspector Montalbano enjoys simple pleasures: delicious food, walks along the water, the occasional smoke—yet these are just the backdrop to his duties as a detective.

His latest case is the killing of the wealthy Cosimo Barletta. Thought to be a widower living out a quiet life by the sea, Cosimo’s sudden death by gunshot to the neck opens up his past to scrutiny. What Montalbano uncovers is Cosimo’s trove of salacious photographs, used to extort young women, and a history full of greed and corruption. Montalbano, though resolved to find the killer, muses on where justice lies—in his pursuit of a suspect or with one of Cosimo’s innumerable victims getting the revenge they deserved?

Review Quotes

“Camilleri blends a locked-room mystery with a vivid sense of setting and an appealing cast of supporting characters.”

Publishers Weekly

“As always, Camilleri’s ability to make subtle changes in tone, from light to dark, continues to define this perennially popular series.”

Booklist

“Expect the ending to make you squirm, though you have to admire Camilleri’s ability to disarm horror with his particular charm; the town of Vigàta quietly soldiers on.”
