“The novels of Andrea Camilleri breathe out the sense of place, the sense of humor, and the sense of despair that fill the air of Sicily.”
Inspector Salvo Montalbano enjoys food, wine, whiskey and a morning on this ocean view veranda. He has trouble with women and uses unorthodox methods to solve his mysteries. A throughly lovable character.
In this latest of installment Montalbano finds a horse carcass that has been bludgeoned to death on the beach in front of his home. The crime takes him in to the world of illegal horse racing and mafia.
A good weekend’s read that deserves 4 out of 5 stars.
