Description

This novel in the New York Times bestselling series has Italy's favorite detective uncovering corruption and mafia ties in the world of construction and public spending.

On a gloomy morning in Vigata, a call from Fazio rouses Inspector Montalbano from a nightmare. A man called Giugiu Nicotra has been found dead in the skeletal workings of a construction site, a place now entombed by a sea of mud from recent days of rain and floods. Shot in the back, he had fled into a water supply system tunnel. The investigation gets off to a slow start, but all the evidence points to the world of construction and public contracts, a world just as slimy and impenetrable as mud.

As he wades through a world in which construction firms and public officials thrive, Montalbano is obsessed by one thought: that by going to die in the tunnel, Nicotra had been trying to communicate something.

        The shooting death of Giugiù Nicotra, his body found inside a huge pipe on a muddy construction site, propels Camilleri’s irresistible 22nd Inspector Montalbano mystery set in Vigàta, Sicily (after A Nest of Vipers). Nicotra, the chief accountant for the construction firm Rosapina, lived nearby with his German-born wife, Inge, and an unidentified older man, both of whom are missing. At the victim’s house, Montalbano discovers a bullet casing and other clues to the killing, but it’s outside actions that galvanize his investigation. A reporter attributes Nicotra’s murder to his wife’s adultery and attacks the inspector’s handling of the case, a Rosapina lawyer accuses Nicotra of stealing a gun from his office, a German lawyer says that Inge has returned to Germany, and yet another attorney escorts a man into Montalbano’s office to confess to the crime. Despite feeling his age, Montalbano manages to arrive at a solution to the puzzle with his customary cunning, humor, and fearlessness. Readers will hope he lives forever. Agent: Donatella Barbieri, Agenzia Letteraria Internazionale (Italy).
