Montalbano's First Case and Other Stories Summary

Montalbano's First Case and Other Stories by Andrea Camilleri

Montalbano's First Case and Other Stories is a brilliant collection of short stories, personally chosen by Andrea Camilleri.

It follows Inspector Montalbano from his very first case in Vigata, in which he stumbles upon a young girl lurking outside a courthouse with a pistol in her handbag. When she is taken in for questioning and won't utter a single word, Montalbano must find another way to learn who she is trying to kill, and why . . .

Other cases include a missing woman who has run away from the love of her life; an old married couple who appear to be rehearsing their suicides; and a crime so dark there's only one person the inspector can call for help.

With twists and turns aplenty, these short stories have all the wit, mystery and culinary gusto that Camilleri's fans have come to love him for.
