Montalbano's gruesome discovery of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the suspects are her aging husband, a famous doctor; a shy admirer, now disappeared; an antiques-dealing lover from Bologna; and the victim's friend Anna, whose charms Montalbano cannot help but appreciate. But it is a mysterious, reclusive violinist who holds the key to the murder.

Andrea Camilleri has never disappointed. This Inspector Montalbano mystery is full of humor and compassion, along with a great plot. I love the way Camilleri develops his characters. For example, the annoying Catarella, "Oh, Chief, Chief! You're here?... At lease ten people called, and they all want to talk to you in poisson! I didn't know you was comin' so I says to all of 'em to call back tomorrow morning. Did I do right, Chief?" And then, Inspector Montalbano's love for his native Sicily, "This, however, was the Sicily the inspector liked best: harsh, spare in vegetation, on whose soil it seemed (and was) impossible to live, and where he could still run across, and more and more rarely, a man in gaiters and cap, rifle on shoulder, who would raise two fingers to his visor and salute him from the back of a mule."

Highly recommended!
