Publisher's Summary

When a gentleman arrives at Montalbano's station to report an armed robbery on his wife that ended with a kiss, the inspector's suspicions are aroused. But Montalbano finds that none of the witnesses' stories add up, and he can't help feeling they're not meant to.

Meanwhile there's a case that keeps finding its way back to Montalbano's office. A locked door has appeared on a farmer's disused shed, and then, just as quickly, it disappears. The antiterrorist police intervene, but why are they so keen to keep this away from him? And why does he sense that this case is connected to him somehow?

Critic Reviews

"Among the most exquisitely crafted pieces of crime writing available today." (Sunday Times)
"One of fiction's greatest detectives and Camilleri is one of Europe's greatest crime writes...utterly gripping." (Daily Mirror)
"Wonderful Italian detective stories." (Guardian)
"For sunny views, explosive characters and a snappy plot constructed with great farcical ingenuity, the writer you want is Andrea Camilleri." (The New York Times)
