"Inspector Montalbano enjoys simple pleasures: delicious food, walks along the water, the occasional smoke--yet these are just the backdrop to his duties as a detective. His latest case is the killing of the wealthy Cosimo Barletta. Thought to be a widower living out a quiet life by the sea, Cosimo's sudden death, by gunshot to the neck, opens up his past to scrutiny. What Montalbano uncovers is Cosimo's trove of salacious photographs, used to extort young women, and a history full of greed and corruption. Montalbano, though resolved to find the killer, muses on where justice lies--in his pursuit of a suspect or with one of Cosimo's innumerable victims getting the revenge they deserved?"--

I knew how this mystery would end while in the first 1/4 of the story. For this reason, and because of the disturbing content, I'm only giving it 3 stars. The book was still enjoyable for me because of the typical interesting dialogue and humor found in Camilleri's novels.
