Meanwhile, a girl is found brutally murdered in Giovanni Strangio's apartment - Giovanni has a flawless alibi, and it's no coincidence that Michel Strangio, president of the province, is his father.

    On a gloomy morning in Vigàta, a call from Fazio rouses Inspector Montalbano from a nightmare. A man called Giugiù Nicotra has been found dead in the skeletal workings of a construction site, a place now entombed by a sea of mud from recent days of rain and floods. Shot in the back, he had fled into a water supply system tunnel. The investigation gets off to a slow start, but all the evidence points to the world of construction and public contracts, a world just as slimy and impenetrable as mud.

    Con le sue storie Andrea Camilleri riesce sempre a creare una magia narrativa. Si sentono gli odori e si percepiscono gli sguardi. Con poche pennellate evoca i personaggi in un modo talmente vivo da renderli realmente presenti. Con pochi tratti ce li fa conoscere nella loro intimità e con le loro piccole debolezze così umane. Ma sempre con uno sguardo insieme ironico e affettuoso. Ed è per questo che finiamo per amarli: ci sembra di conoscerli, di aver fatto con loro un tratto di strada.

    While swimming along the Sicilian shore, Inspector Montalbano discovers a corpse. His pursuit of the cause of death intersects with the inquiry into a hit-and-run accident that claimed the life of a young boy who may have been victimized by human traffickers. The buying and selling of immigrant children, for slave labor, sex, and as a source of illegal organ transplants, is part of the evil underside of the opening of Europe's borders.

What Montalbano uncovers is Cosimo's trove of salacious photographs, used to extort young women, and a history full of greed and corruption.
