Inspector Montalbano: The first three novels in the series Summary

Inspector Montalbano: The first three novels in the series by Andrea Camilleri

Inspector Montalbano: The first three novels in the series contains The Shape of Water, The Terracotta Dog and The Snack Thief, from Andrea Camilleri's bestselling Inspector Montalbano series.

This three-book compilation features:

The Shape of Water: On a waste ground in Vigata, the Sicilian town's dark underbelly flourishes: drug dealers and prostitutes plying their trade. But when the body of Silvio Luparello, one of the local movers and shakers, is discovered there, Inspector Montalbano must investigate; and despite pressure from his commissioner, a local judge and bishop - he is determined to unearth the truth . . .

The Terracotta Dog: When two lovers, dead for over fifty years, are discovered in a mountain cave watched over by a life-size terracotta dog, Inspector Montalbano's investigation will take him on a journey through Sicily's past and into a family's dark heart amid the horrors of World War II.

The Snack Thief: When an elderly man is stabbed to death in an elevator and a crewman on an Italian fishing trawler is machine-gunned by a Tunisian patrol boat off Sicily's coast, only Inspector Montalbano suspects a link between the two incidents . . .

Inspector Montalbano: The first three novels in the series Reviews

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 *
The novels of Andrea Camilleri breathe out the sense of place, the sense of humour, and the sense of despair that fill the air of Sicily. To read him is to be taken to that glorious, tortured island * Donna Leon *
For total relaxation, I've just discovered Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano mysteries * Andrew Marr *
A magnificent series of novels * Sunday Times *
Wonderful Italian detective stories * Guardian *
For sunny views, explosive characters and a snappy plot constructed with great farcical ingenuity, the writer you want is Andrea Camilleri * New York Times *
Sly and witty . . . Montalbano must pick his way though a labyrinth of corruption, false clues, vendettas - and delicious meals. The result is funny and intriguing with a fluent translation by New York poet Stephen Sartarelli * Observer *
One of fiction's greatest detectives and Camilleri is one of Europe's greatest crime writers * Mirror *
The seal of the best foreign crime writing is as much the stylish prose as the unfamiliar settings. When both ingredients are presented with the expertise shown by Andrea Camilleri, the result is immensely satisfying * Independent *
