Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Here [Montalbano] is increasingly worried by intimations of dementia and death, which give a satisfyingly melancholic tinge to another of Andrea Camilleri’s faultlessly witty treats.” Telegraph (London)
“Montalbano’s colleagues, chance encounters, Sicilian mores—even the contents of his fridge—are described with the wit and gusto that make this narrator the best company in crime fiction today.” Guardian (London)
“Humor…leavens the noirish story line, and the solution to the central puzzle is both psychologically plausible and intellectually satisfying. The crisp prose is a pleasure to read, and a last-minute twist a testament to the author’s artistry.” Publishers Weekly
“While the murder is solved after some deft twists, the inspector himself calls for further attention, and fans will welcome Camilleri’s tenth.” Library Journal
“Solutions are found, of course, but resolution proves elusive as Montalbano muses on our myriad human frailties and how they so often lead to calamity. A must.” Booklist
“Two seductive suspects battle for the allegiance and libido of a weary detective…Another solid Sicilian noir from the ironic pen of Camilleri.” Kirkus Reviews
