by Andrea Camilleri; translated from Italian by Stephen Sartarelli
I love all of Camilleri's books and this is the newest release. The author is a former communist who lives in Sicily and didn't start writing until he was 53 years old. His protagonist, Inspector Montalbano is eccentric and rude and always angry which only adds to the story line. Camillieri's depictions of Sicily and the political climate are eye opening.
