Voice of the Violin

I think I need to start wearing my reading glasses while i take pictures. Focusing without them isn't working for me with the camera.

Voice of the Violin is the 4th book in Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano series and is one of the ones The Husband bought me for Christmas. I've enjoyed each of these in this series. The plots are interesting and the characters fun to read.

from the back of the book:
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....

EuroCrime says it's "a perfect example of all that is good about this series." The Crime Segments says, "The core mystery is excellent -- as is the path to its solution" and concludes, "Definitely recommended to all readers of crime fiction, whether you like your crime deep and satisfyingly bad or a bit on the lighter side." Kirkus Reviews says, "Camilleri has ample opportunity to showcase Montalbano’s droll misanthropy in his shaggiest adventure to date."

I've read these:

1. The Shape of Water
2. The Terra-Cotta Dog
3. The Snack Thief
5. Excursion to Tindari
6. The Smell of Night
9. The Paper Moon
10. August Heat
11. The Wings of the Sphinx
12. The Track of Sand
