Death in Sicily Summary

Death in Sicily: The First Three Novels in the Inspector Montalbano Series--The Shape of Water; The Terra-Cotta Dog; The Snack Thief by Andrea Camilleri

Collected in one volume-the first three books in the bestselling Inspector Montalbano mystery 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

American readers were first introduced to Sicily's inimitable Inspector Salvo Montalbano more than ten years ago. Since then, the detective-and his characteristic mix of humor, cynicism, compassion, and love of good food-has won the affection of crime fiction aficionados and Italophiles alike. With Andrea Camilleri's last two mysteries appearing on the New York Times bestseller list, it's clear that interest in the series is at an all time high. Now, Death in Sicily features the Inspector's first three adventures in one handy volume, offering new readers just the enticement they need to get started.

Death in Sicily Reviews

There's a deliciously playful quality to the mysteries Andrea Camilleri writes about a lusty Sicilian police detective named Salvo Montalbano.

- The New York Times Book Review

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

This series is distinguished by Camilleri's remarkable feel for tragicomedy, expertly mixing light and dark in the course of producing novels that are both comforting and disturbing.

- Booklist

The books are full of sharp, precise characterizations and with subplots that make Montalbano endearingly human... Like the antipasti that Montalbano contentedly consumes, the stories are light and easily consumed, leaving one eager for the next course.

- The New York Journal of Books

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

- Los Angeles Times
