MY BELOVED LIVIA (SALVO AMATO, LIVIA MIA)
A security guard discovers a young man behaving strangely at a mansion. The young man is the son of Montalbano’s house-keeper Adelina. And his motivations are mysterious – Montalbano treats him to a few days in jail with his mother’s blessing! At the city archive, a reserved young woman is slain and there seems no plausible reason. Adding to the drama, she’s an old friend of Livia’s. The investigation peels back the covers on some disturbing truths in the upper echelons of Vigata. In the meantime, Montalbano also solves the mystery at the mansion!
