"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 -- altogether transporting. Long live Camilleri, and long live Montalbano." A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

"In Sicily, where people do things as they please, Inspector Salvo Montalbano is a bona fide folk hero."-- The New York Times Book Review

When Inspector Montalbano falls under the charms of beautiful gallery owner Marian, his longtime relationship with Livia comes under threat. Meanwhile, he is also troubled by a strange dream as three crimes demand his attention: the assault and robbery of a wealthy merchant's young wife, shady art deals, and a search for arms traffickers that leads him deep into the countryside, where the investigation takes a tragic turn.

This must be one of the most beautifully crafted detective characters in current fiction. I love the writing, I love the setting, I love the humanity and I love the hman weaknesses.

It doesn't matter what order you read these in, they are all terrific. You may have seen theTV series. for me I see the scenes set in the television series asthe writing unfolds.
