PRAISE FOR THE INSPECTOR MONTALBANO SERIES
‘Among the most exquisitely crafted pieces of crime writing available today . . . simply superb’ Sunday Times
‘Montalbano’s colleagues, chance encounters, Sicilian mores, even the contents of his fridge are described with the wit and gusto that make this narrator the best company in crime fiction today’ GuardianUmschlagtext:
Quite a family, you had to admit! A nest of vipers might be a better description . . .
On what should be a quiet Sunday morning, Inspector Montalbano is called to a murder scene on the Sicilian coast. A man has discovered his father dead in his Vigàtan beach house: his body slumped on the dining room floor, his morning coffee spilt across the table, and a single gunshot wound at the base of his skull.
First appearances point to the son having the most to gain from his father’s untimely death, a notion his sister can’t help but reinforce. But when Montalbano delves deeper into the case, and learns of the dishonourable life the victim led, it soon becomes clear that half of Vigàta has a motive for his murder and this won’t be as simple as the Inspector had once hoped . . .
