Synopsis

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Potter's Field, winner of the Crime Writers' Association's International Dagger Award and longlisted for the IMPAC Dublin Literary Prize

With their dark sophistication and dry humor, Andrea Camilleri's hugely popular Sicilian crime novels continue to win more and more fans in America. The day after a storm, Inspector Montalbano encounters a strange woman who expresses interest in a certain yacht scheduled to dock that afternoon. Not long after she's gone, the yacht's crew reports finding a disfigured corpse. Also at anchor is a luxury vessel with a somewhat shady crew. Both boats will have to stay in Vigàta until the investigation is over and, based on information from the woman, Montalbano begins to think the occupants of the yacht might know more about the man's death than they're letting on.

Montalbano's 14th (The Potter's Field, 2011, etc.) delves more deeply into the hero's interior life than usual. A droll delight for series fans

The awkward humanity and everyday sadness of Camilleri’s characters make them instantly sympathetic, while wry commentary on language, food, and local customs lend color

Reviewed by bernadetteinoz. on Sep 23 2012

it is an enjoyable outing though, for me, not the best of the series as a good deal of it is taken up with Montalbano’s infatuation with a Lieutenant who works at the Port.
