Product description


''Superlative . . . Once again, Camilleri's sardonic sense of humor distinguishes this Mediterranean crime novel from the pack.'' --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Andrea Camilleri and the Inspector Montalbano Series:

''Hailing from the land of Umberto Eco and La Casa 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 wedges 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

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

''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

''Camilleri can do a character's whole backstory in half a paragraph.'' --The New Yorker --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.


The irresistible <b>Inspector Montalbano</b> returns for his sixteenth mystery. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Camilleri paints a wonderful picure of the aging process in his main character and he enriches this mystery in the process.
