Second in a series

Finished January 25
The Terra-Cotta Dog by Andrea Camilleri
This is the second in the series featuring Inspector Montalbano, set in Sicily. Montalbano is an honest policeman, shy of media appearances and public honors. He likes what he does and does not want promotion. When a big-name gangster decides to do a deal with him in order to give himself up, Montalbano finds himself getting publicity he does not want. When his contact gives him more information, he finds not only present day criminal activity but also a mystery from the past. He is drawn to solve the historic mystery and ends up getting more than he expected.
A great character, and interesting plot.
