Daniel Graham MacCormick - Mac for short - seems to have a pretty good life. At age 35 he's living in Key West, owner of a 42-foot charter fishing boat, The Maine. Mac served five years in the army as an infantry officer, with two tours in Afghanistan. He returned with the Silver Star, two Purple Hearts, scars that don't tan, and a boat with a big bank loan.

Boring, full of infantile behavior .. as a Cuban I was less than impressed with the facile story line and one dimensional characters...and a 60ish Cuban man living in Miami would never wear a Guayabera, black slacks and SANDALS... no mad

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.

The ending was predictable from almost the beginning .. I love this series and have every book. I absolutely hate Livia who continues to rompere cog lions and this books makes even more insufferable. The worst part was Salvo not seeing the criminal until the very end..
