Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Game of Mirrors and publishing on Andrea Camilleri's 90th birthday, A Beam of Light is the 19th installment in the Inspector Montalbano mystery series.

When Inspector Montalbano falls under the charms of beautiful gallery owner Marian, his longtime relationship with Livia comes under threat. Meanwhile, he is also troubled by a strange dream as three crimes demand his attention: the robbery and assault of a wealthy merchant's young wife, stolen works of art, and a search for arms traffickers that leads him deep into the countryside, where the investigation takes a tragic turn.

Excellence!

law-enforcement, relationships, Sicily, mystery, audiobook ----------
Three policing plots and two relationship plots make this a truly complicated tale. A rather suspicious theft/assault, an interesting woman art dealer with strange connections, and an evident munitions storage in a remote field make for some interesting policing and interdepartmental shenanigans. The interesting woman triggers some inner conflicts for Montalbano while Livia is experiencing an unexplained bout of depression. And, as always, there is Catarella!
More excellent writing from the master with impressive translation by Stephen Sartarelli and narrative interpretation by Grover Gardner.
