Publisher's Summary

This latest installment in the Inspector Montalbano series finds Montalbano in search of his missing right-hand man.

Before leaving for vacation with Livia, Montalbano witnesses a seagull doing an odd dance on the beach outside his home - and then the bird suddenly drops dead. Stopping in at his office for a quick check before heading off, he notices that Fazio is nowhere to be found and soon learns that he was last seen on the docks, secretly working on a case. Montalbano sets out to find him and discovers that the seagull’s dance of death may provide the key to understanding a macabre world of sadism, extortion, and murder.

Murder in Sicily

law-enforcement, Sicily, attempted-murder, murder, murder-investigation, smuggling, situational-humor, verbal-humor

If you've read any of the Montalbano books you know that the men of the station are dependent on each other and respect each other. One of their number, Fazzio, goes missing and it is a hard road to finding out where he is and what he was about. He is found alive but with a head wound and still in danger from those who kidnapped him and murdered his friend. It's a tense novel and filled with suspense despite the humorous stuff. Loved it.
Stephen Sartarelli is the master of Montalbano translations, and Grover Gardner in the voice of Montalbano and the other characters.

Always interesting. Enjoy the characters.

I've heard about half of Camilleri's works. They are all interesting and give much local color.
