Review

Praise for The Sacco Gang

"This is a riveting story of how organized crime, political corruption, and judicial duplicity can oppress freedom." ―Publishers Weekly

"His latest nonfiction volume, The Sacco Gang, finds him digging through the cold coals of a real-life case from the early 20th century, a twisted morality tale worthy of the wild west." ―The Observer

"If history is the story of the winners and the powerful, it's not only the fault of historians; the fact is that the traces of the past with which they work―'documents'―are left by those arranging for their own posterity . . . Camilleri rebels against this fiction, creating another, more refined and luminous one." ―La Repubblica

Praise for Andrea Camilleri and the Inspector Montalbano Series

"You either love Andrea Camilleri or you haven't read him yet. Each novel in this wholly addictive, entirely magical series, set in Sicily and starring a detective unlike any other in crime fiction, blasts the brain like a shot of pure oxygen. Aglow with local color, packed with flint-dry wit, as fresh and clean as Mediterranean seafood -- altogether transporting. Long live Camilleri, and long live Montalbano." --A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

"The idiosyncratic Montalbano is totally endearing." --The New York Times

"Camilleri is as crafty and charming a writer as his protagonist is an investigator." --The Washington Post Book World

"Hailing from the land of Umberto Eco and La Cosa Nostra, Montalbano can discuss a pointy-headed book like Western Attitudes Toward Death as unflinchingly as he can pore over crime-scene snuff photos. He throws together an extemporaneous lunch of shrimp with lemon and oil as gracefully as he dodges advances from attractive women." --Los Angeles Times

"[Camilleri's mysteries] offer quirky characters, crisp dialogue, bright storytelling--and Salvo Montalbano, one of the most engaging protagonists in detective fiction. . . . Montalbano is a delightful creation, an honest man on Sicily's mean streets." --USA Today

"Like Mike Hammer or Sam Spade, Montalbano is the kind of guy who can't stay out of trouble. . . . Still, deftly and lovingly translated by Stephen Sartarelli, Camilleri makes it abundantly clear that under the gruff, sardonic exterior our inspector has a heart of gold, and that any outburst, fumbles, or threats are made only in the name of pursuing truth." --The Nation

"The novels of Andrea Camilleri breathe out the sense of place, the sense of humor, and the sense of despair that fills the air of Sicily." --Donna Leon, author of the Guido Brunetti series

"Based on a true story from the early 1900s, this sordid episode offers a devastating portrait of how political power, the mafia, Catholic cover-ups, and family shame kept rural Sicily in a medieval time warp long into the twentieth century." --Foreword Reviews
