Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Montalbano, who, perhaps, loves his antipasto more than his detective work, looks into a rash of copycat burglaries in the Sicilian coastal village of Vigàta…Poor lovesick Montalbano tries to keep his mind on the case (but not too hard) in this delightful caper, replete with charming companions and a setting that’s a pleasure to return to.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Grover Gardner is simply wonderful as Inspector Montalbano embarks on another complicated criminal investigation. Gardner’s voice contains that mysterious element we think of as ‘star quality,’ which makes listeners sit up and take notice…[A] cleverly plotted mystery.” AudioFile
“No one today writes better mysteries than Camilleri and no one’s been better served than him by his translator. The distinguishing feature of these stories is their deft blend of old-style detecting, social commentary, and slapstick humor…Vigata, Sicily, may not be where you'd choose to live but it’s a lot of fun to visit. The author’s fans will devour this book.” Library Journal
“The investigation of a string of burglaries becomes ticklishly complicated when the rumpled investigator finds himself entranced by one of the victims…Sublime, with droll dialogue, colorful characters and a sleek pace.” Kirkus Reviews
