OrangeReviewStarIn this 13th book featuring Sicilian detective inspector Montalbano, a body has been found chopped into 30 pieces and dumped in a field. While the detective and his team pursue the mystery of the victim's identification and murder, a beautiful, sultry woman asks Montalbano to find her missing husband. The two cases soon are linked and further complicated by the possible involvement of one his investigators. Filled with Camilleri's usual humor and irreverence, this story will delight more than just his fans. Prolific reader (more than 700 titles to his credit) Grover Gardner has narrated every English translation of this mystery series, and he continues to be the perfect voice for the irascible Montalbano.
VERDICT Recommended for all public libraries that collect crime fiction. [The Penguin pb, published in September, was a New York Times best seller.—Ed.]
