When an elderly man is stabbed to death in an elevator and a crewman on an Italian fishing trawler is machine-gunned by a Tunisian patrol boat off Sicily’s coast, only Inspector Montalbano, with his keen insight into human nature, suspects the link between the two incidents. His investigation leads to the beautiful Karima, an impoverished housecleaner and occasional prostitute, whose young son steals other schoolchildren’s midmorning snacks. But Karima disappears, and the young snack thief’s life, as well as Montalbano’s, is endangered when the inspector exposes a viper’s nest of government corruption and international intrigue.

The urbane and perceptive Sicilian detective is in top form in this compelling case—as are Camilleris stunning storytelling skills.
