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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Camilleri blends a locked-room mystery with a vivid sense of setting and an appealing cast of supporting characters.” Publishers Weekly
“As always, Camilleri’s ability to make subtle changes in tone, from light to dark, continues to define this perennially popular series.” Booklist
“Expect the ending to make you squirm, though you have to admire Camilleri’s ability to disarm horror with his particular charm; the town of Vigàta quietly soldiers on.” Kirkus Reviews
