Another wry, amiable procedural from the prolific Camilleri, whose unflappably put-upon hero soldiers on no matter how absurd the crime or aggravating the situation.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
The aging detective's insights into the darker side of human nature allow him to cut through the red herrings as the action builds to a crisp, decisive ending...Camilleri fans are in for a treat.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Camilleri's long-running Inspector Montalbano series is always a pleasure, with each new installment sure to transport readers to the cloistered, sunny, dangerous world of Sicilian crime. In The Overnight Kidnapper, Montalbano is faced with a vexing mystery after a number of women are kidnapped and held overnight, then released under strange circumstances.-- "Crime Reads"
A sterling example of the universal appeal that has led the series to be translated into thirty-two languages...Recommend to readers looking for a sure-bet international mystery.-- "Booklist"
Camilleri's sequel to The Pyramid of Mud, with its descriptions of Sicilian politics, customs, and food, has enough humor involving the office staff at the police department to be a Sicilian cousin of Bill Crider's 'Sheriff Dan Rhodes' mysteries.-- "Library Journal"

An extremely odd case awaits Montalbano at the office. A man chloroforms and kidnaps a young woman and releases her soon after, no harm done. Then the kidnapper does it again. At the same time, a business burns down, the owner goes missing, and his latest girlfriend is nowhere to be found either. Montalbano’s inspired observations and brilliant deductions are a delight. Right or not.
The investigations are fascinating. And the characters exhibit their characteristic quirks. Fazio is irritatingly efficient. Augello makes use of his womanizing skills. Catarella garbles names every time he answers the phone. And Montalbano worries about getting old. But his gargantuan appetite for good Sicilian food remains as strong as ever.
This is a perfect novel — very clever, somewhat poignant, subtly and blatantly amusing by turns, and even a bit deep.
This books seems a might bit more tongue in cheek, and a bit self-aware than the past ones (Mimí and Salvo parley more back and forth pithy insults than I ever read in previous books, but hey, 30 or so years have passed in their work relationship).
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AND ALL Inspector Montalbano books!!!! I wish there were 10 more coming up!!!
If you have not read any of the series my advice is to get started right now. Read the series from the beginning, as Camilleri develops his characters incrementally, throughout the series.
