Sono giorni di pioggia a Vigàta, quegli acquazzoni violenti e persistenti che non danno requie, fiumane d’acqua scatenata che travolgono case e terreni lasciando dietro di sé un mare di fango. È in una di queste giornate che un uomo, Giugiù Nicotra, viene trovato morto in un cantiere, mezzo nudo, colpito da un proiettile alle spalle. Aveva cercato scampo in una specie di galleria formata da grossi tubi per la costruzione di condotte d’acqua. L’indagine parte lenta e scivolosa, ma ben presto ogni indizio, ogni personaggio, conduce al mondo dei cantieri e degli appalti pubblici. Un mondo non meno viscido e fangoso della melma di cui ogni cantiere è ricoperto. Districandosi tra tutto quel fango nel quale «sguazzariano» costruttori, ditte, funzionari pubblici, una cosa Montalbano non riesce a togliersi dalla testa: che Nicotra, il morto, andando a morire dentro alla galleria, avesse voluto comunicare qualche cosa.

The Pyramid of Mud is the twenty-second Montalbano mystery from Italy's finest crime writer, Andrea Camilleri. It's been raining for days in Vigàta, and the persistent downpours have led to violent floods overtaking the Inspector's beloved hometown, sweeping across the land and leaving only a sea of mud behind. It is on one of these endless grey days that a man - a Mr Giuglù Nicotra - is found dead. His body discovered in a large sewage tunnel, half naked and with a bullet in his back. The investigation is slow and slippery to start with, but when Montalbano realizes that every clue he uncovers and every person he interviews is leading to the same place: the world of public spending - and with it, the Mafia - the case begins to pick up pace. But there's one question that keeps playing on Montalbano's mind: in his strange and untimely death, was Giuglù Nicotra trying to tell him something?

The Voice of the Violin by Andrea Camilleri is fourth in the bestselling Inspector Montalbano series. The commissioner kept looking at him with an expression that combined contempt and commiseration, apparently discerning unmistakable signs of senile dementia in the inspector. "I'm going to speak very frankly, Montalbano. I don't have a very high opinion of you." "Nor I of you," the inspector replied bluntly. Montalbano's gruesome discovery of a 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 this murder . . . The Voice of the Violin is followed by the fifth novel in this compelling mystery series, Excursion to Tindari.

This edition with a stunning redesigned cover.The goats of Vig�ta once grazed on the trash-strewn site still known as the Pasture.

Picking his way through a labyrinth of high-comedy corruption, delicious meals, vendetta firepower, and carefully planted false clues, Montalbano can be relied on, whatever the cost, to get to the heart of the matter.The Shape of Water is followed by the second in this phenomenal series, The Terracotta Dog.
