Pyramid of Mud
(book #19 of the Inspector Montalbano series)
by Andrea Camilleri. Another great installment in the Montalbano series. In
this book, a murdered accountant is found in a halted construction site after torrential
rains. The investigation is confronted at every step by misdirection and smoke
from those trying to shift the focus of Montalbano and his team. It works for a
little while but Montalbano eventually solves the case.
