Publisher's Summary

Montalbano's gruesome discovery of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the suspects are her aging husband, a famous doctor; a shy admirer, now disappeared; an antiques-dealing lover from Bologna; and the victim's friend Anna, whose charms Montalbano cannot help but appreciate. But it is a reclusive violinist who holds the key to the murder.

Montalbano does not disappoint, bringing his compelling mix of humor, cynicism, compassion, and love of good food to solve another riveting mystery.

Solve another mystery with Inspector Montalbano.

"Camilleri is as crafty and charming a writer as his protagonist is an investigator." (Washington Post)

    "Another atmospheric Sicilian listen."

    Entertaining, complex and satisfying. Enjoyed the descriptions of Italian dishes and colorful characters. Great listen.

    "The best Inspector Montalbano yet"

    I thought the first three books in the series were good but this fourth one is the best yet.

    Montalbano's character is developing nicely with each new story. The plots get better and faster paced.

    The only criticism I can offer is that the voice of Catarella is strangely (New) Jersey accented, I suppose for the benefit of the American audience (of which I am one). It does get the idea across but is a bit discordant. A small annoyance. I hope it changes in future installments.

    Highly recommended!

    "Lost in Translation?"

    I'd like to give the author the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps this is a much better novel in the original Italian. The characters are flat and unsympathetic. The plot is implausible and silly. In short, skip it.

    "Worth trying out"

    There were a lot of characters to keep track of but it was an interesting mystery.
