Publisher's Summary

In the latest installment of the New York Times best-selling 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?

    "Flawed people"

    law-enforcement, sicily, murder-investigation

    The murder victim was without redeeming value, a real sociopath. He used people without remorse or any thought. The various aspects of his actions unfold as Montalbano and others in the law enforcement agencies dig into the man's life and his victims. There is intentional and unintentional humor to lighten it up a bit, as well as Montalbano's squabbles with his long time girlfriend, and the antics of his coworkers. Well worth the read.
    Grover Gardner has perfected just the right delivery for Camilleri's books.

    "I hate to say it but Salvo is getting old"

    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..
