Still recovering from his gunshot wound, Inspector Montalbano is feeling the weight of his years, and of his solitude.  He's getting softer, more introspective, and critical of his life choices.  But if withdrawing from society has become natural of late, he'll soon be forced to interact with others, compelled to intervene as a web of hatred and secrets threaten to squeeze its victims to death.  This is Montalbano's most unusual and challenging case yet - and the one that will either change him or break him.
