Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The novels of Andrea Camilleri breathe out the sense of place, the sense of humour, and the sense of despair that fills the air of Sicily. To read him is to be taken to that glorious, tortured island.” Donna Leon, New York Times bestselling author
“Camilleri once again thrills with his fluid storytelling and quirky characters...the author has increased the stakes for Salvo’s career and the amount of maverick behavior. Through this deft translation, Camilleri’s tale of lust, greed and hidden beauty should win new American readers.” Publishers Weekly
“[Montalbano’s] sharp wit and sharper tongue add dimension to the convoluted case with its eccentric cast of suspects. AudioFile Golden Voice Grover Gardner doesn’t waste time on Italian accents, instead providing personal touches and quirky behaviors to Camilleri’s many honest character portraits. Montalbano loves fine cuisine, and Gardner adds just the right spice to each mouth-watering description. Translator Stephen Sartarelli earns top marks for his impeccable work in the fourth Inspector Montalbano mystery published in the US.” AudioFile
“Camilleri continues to mix procedural detail with personal drama—Montalbano’s tenuous relationship with his lover and his attraction to one of the witnesses in the case—in ways that add depth to both the characters and the drama. If you like the Italian crime novel, you’ll love this series.” Booklist

Story

Montalbano is in a bad mood!

I have come to enjoy Inspector Montalbano and his seemingly bumbling investigations very much. The process is involved and some of the co-workers are worth a lot of giggles, but through it all Montalbano puzzles and ponders and arrives at the correct conclusion well before the other forces involved. There is sly humour in abundance, and a glimpse into a neighborhood rather different from midwest USA. No need to post spoilers.
Grover Gardner has just the right delivery for this series
