A wave of refugees has arrived on the Sicilian coast, and Inspector Montalbano and his team have been stationed at port, alongside countless volunteers, to receive and assist the newcomers.

Meanwhile, Livia has promised their presence at a friend’s wedding, and the inspector, agreeing to get a new suit tailored, meets the charming master seamstress Elena Biasini. But while on duty at the dock one late night, tragedy strikes, and Elena is found gruesomely murdered.

Between managing the growing crowds at the landing, Montalbano delves into the world of garments, in the company of an orphaned cat, where he works to weave together the loose threads of the unsolved crimes and close the case.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Half the fun of reading a mystery by the late Andrea Camilleri is watching his detective, Inspector Salvo Montalbano of the Sicilian police, as he bluffs, breaks rules, or even flat-out lies for justice’s sake…[For] anyone who likes mysteries with good plotting and characterization, vivid local color, and sparkling language.” Washington Post
“Provides a pleasant reading experience…Old, blind, and addicted to cigarettes, Camilleri is nonetheless on his game and in fine form.” Mountain & Plains Independent Booksellers Association
“Grover Gardner narrates this Sicilian police procedural with ease and familiarity…Gardner characterizes the key players strongly, including the members of Montalbano’s quirky team…Sartarelli’s translation ensures that the strong Silicilan ambiance is carefully blended with very American expressions and phrases, resulting in an engaging listen.” AudioFile
“The multilayered plot seizes the reader’s imagination as much as it engages Montalbano’s keen detective instincts.” Publishers Weekly
“Fans should especially enjoy the expanded role of the detective’s lover in his droll, clever twenty-fourth outing.” Kirkus Reviews
“A witty and well-crafted addition to Camilleri’s oeuvre.” Booklist
