Paperback Loan from Connie
I liked this book slightly less than I did The Terra Cotta Dog and The Snack Thief. I thought it was kind of slow. Also I had a feeling that Montalbano was going to mess up with Livia. I am hoping that in future books he can bail himself out.
As the fourth mystery in the internationally bestselling series opens, Montalbano’s gruesome discovery of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the suspects are her aging husband, a famous doctor; a shy admirer, now disappeared; an antiques-dealing lover from Bologna; and the victim’s friend Anna, whose charms Montalbano cannot help but appreciate. But it is a mysterious, reclusive violinist who holds the key to the murder.
