"You either love Andrea Camilleri or you haven't read him yet. Each novel in this wholly addictive, entirely magical series, set in Sicily and starring a detective unlike any other in crime fiction, blasts the brain like a shot of pure oxygen...transporting. Long live Camilleri, and long live Montalbano." -A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window Montalbano investigates the death of wealthy accountant 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? "The novels of Andrea Camilleri breathe out the sense of place, the sense of humor, and the sense of despair that fills the air of Sicily." -Donna Leon
