"You either love Andrea Camilleri or you haven't read him yet. Each novel in this wholly addictive, entirely magical series, set in Sicily and starring a detective unlike any other in crime fiction, blasts the brain like a shot of pure oxygen...transporting. Long live Camilleri, and long live Montalbano."
--A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

The day after a storm floods Vigàta, Inspector Montalbano encounters a strange, bedraggled woman who expresses interest in a certain yacht scheduled to dock that afternoon. Not long after she's gone, the crew of the yacht reports having found a dinghy in the port, and within it, a disfigured corpse. Also at anchor is an eighty-five-foot luxury boat with a somewhat shady crew. Both boats will have to stay in Vigàta until the investigation is over--the unidentified man was poisoned, it seems. Based on the information--and misinformation--the mysterious woman shared with him, Montalbano begins to think the occupants of the yacht just might know a little more about the man's death than they're letting on.

Camilleri has the formula down: Montalbano has a dream with hidden meaning; he writes letters and talks with himself; at 58 he suffers from getting-old trauma; calls from long time, surprisingly patient girlfriend Livia come at the wrong time. All familiar now but the plot is big, good and new. Excellent as usual.

Somewhat formulaic and written by someone who seems to think that women are incredibly drawn to a man approaching sixty. Maybe he wishes it were true? Anyways, the love interests really detract from a good read.

as usual Andrea doesn't disappoint, Montalbano is such a well drawn characater as are all of the main players in these Montalbano series of books. highly recommend reading it.
