On his way to a vacation, Montalbano ends up working on two very different cases.

The latter case he handles with discretion, and he also manages to finally identify the woman's assassin.

In his investigation of the murder of an accountant and the attempted murder of a bricklayer, Montalbano discovers a ring of corruption between construction companies and the Mafia.
