Food, love, and murder—Sicilian style—blend together in the gripping eleventh installment of the New York Times bestselling Montalbano mystery series. Things are not going well for Inspector Salvo Montalbano. His relationship with Livia is once again on the rocks, and, acutely aware of his age, he is beginning to grow weary of the endless violence he encounters. Then a young woman is found dead, her face half shot off, and there is no hint of her identity except a tattoo of a sphinx moth. The tattoo links her to three similarly marked girls, all victims of the underworld sex trade, who have been rescued from the Mafia nightclub circuit by a prominent Catholic charity. The problem is that Montalbano’s inquiries elicit an outcry from the Church—and the three other girls are all missing.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sublime and darkly humorous…Camilleri balances his hero’s personal and professional challenges perfectly and leaves the reader eager for more.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Happily, Grover Gardner eschews even a hint of an Italian accent in narrating the eleventh installment of this series celebrating the life, loves, and investigations of the charmingly eccentric Sicilian Insp. Salvo Montalbano…Along with his avoidance of stereotypes and unfortunate accents, Gardner does quite well by the characters, from the weary but unstoppable Montalbano to his backup crew of memorable cops and the angry, offended, officious, and, in rare instances, grateful people with whom he has to deal…These are three-dimensional, human creations, and Gardner treats them as such.” Publishers Weekly audio review
“Grover Gardner is the perfect performer for Camilleri’s series, giving a slyly funny reading of Inspector Montalbano and the Sicilian cops he works with.” AudioFile
“Another strong entry in this well-wrought, internationally popular series.” Library Journal
