A Nest of Vipers is the twenty-first novel in Andrea Camilleriâ€™s irresistible Inspector Montalbano series.
On what should be a quiet Sunday morning, Inspector Montalbano is called to a murder scene on the Sicilian coast. A man has discovered his father dead in his VigÃ tan beach house, his body slumped on the dining room floor, his morning coffee spilled across the table, and a single gunshot wound at the base of his skull.
First appearances point to the son having the most to gain from his fatherâ€™s untimely death, a notion his sister canâ€™t help but reinforce. But when Montalbano delves deeper into the case, and learns of the dishonourable life the victim led, it soon becomes clear half of VigÃ ta has a motive for his murder and this wonâ€™t be as simple as the inspector had once hoped . . .
A Nest of Vipers is followed by the twenty-second gripping mystery, The Pyramid of Mud.
