The case at the heart of bestseller Camilleris sardonic 20th mystery featuring Sicilys Insp. Salvo Montalbano (after 2015s A Beam of Light) starts innocuously with the report of a supermarket burglary. But since locals know that the enterprise is owned by the Cuffaro family, its clear that something else is going onand, sure enough, within hours theres a related suicide of the supermarkets manager, previously accountant for several Cuffaro businesses, which probably isnt a suicide at all. As if pressure from the commissioner over Montalbanos handling of the probe werent headache enough, a night watchman who may have seen too much vanishes. Like some of the Sicilian delicacies that provide the inspector a brief respite from his labors, Camilleris mix of the harrowing and the humorous is at times an acquired tasteparticularly Montalbanos language-butchering assistant Catarella (I beck yer partin for distrubbin yiz!), who could have stepped straight out of a Marx Brothers movie. Agent: Donatella Barbieri, Agenzia Letteraria Internazionale (Italy). (Nov.)
