Pyramid of Mud, The
This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
"You either love Andrea Camilleri or you haven't read him yet. Each novel in this wholly addictive, entirely magical series, set in Sicily and starring a detective unlike any other in crime fiction, blasts the brain like a shot of pure oxygen...transporting. Long live Camilleri, and long live Montalbano."
--A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
Inspector Montalbano uncovers corruption and mafia ties in the world of construction and contracts
On a gloomy morning in Vig#65533;ta, a call from Fazio rouses Inspector Montalbano from a nightmare. A man called Giugi#65533; Nicotra has been found dead in the skeletal workings of a construction site, a place now entombed by a sea of mud from recent days of rain and floods. Shot in the back, he had fled into a water supply system tunnel. The investigation gets off to a slow start, but all the evidence points to the world of construction and public contracts, a world just as slimy and impenetrable as mud.
As he wades through a world in which construction firms and public officials thrive, Montalbano is obsessed by one thought: that by going to die in the tunnel, Nicotra had been trying to communicate something.
