When he finally gets to the office, the inspector learns about a strange abduction: a woman was abducted, drugged, and then released unharmed a few hours later. A few days later, the same thing happens again, but this time the woman abducted is the niece of Enzo, the owner of Montalbano's favorite trattoria.

Is he fleeing from his creditors, or was he murdered by the mafia for not paying their protection money? At first this seems like a trivial case, but a third abductioń”yet again of a girl who works in a banḱ”and the discovery of a body bring up new questions. Whose body is it? And where has Di Carlo's secret lover gone?
