The Safety Net

Strongly recommended for purchase where the series is known, this book will also serve as a fine introduction to Camilleri’s oeuvre.

The Overnight Kidnapper

Armchair travelers who enjoy Cay Rademacher's police procedurals set in Provence, France, or Jeffrey Siger's Greece-set crime novels may want to venture to Sicily.

The Sacco Gang

Based on historical events, Camilleri's latest is not light reading for the armchair traveler, but instead a realistic representation of a region dominated by organized crime and a corrupt justice system in the first half of the 20th century.

The Brewer of Preston

Camilleri has many fans; this book should have broad appeal and only add to his reader base.

Angelica's Smile: An Inspector Montalbano Mystery

The author's fans will devour this book; for those readers who can't get enough of Camilleri, they should also consider his quirky historical mystery Hunting Season.

Treasure Hunt: An Inspector Montalbano Mystery

This is the 16th entry (after The Dance of the Seagull) in Camilleri's series featuring Montalbano. It's one of the best.

The Dance of the Seagull: An Inspector Montalbano Mystery

In his 15th outing (after The Age of Doubt), Inspector Montalbano is distracted by a bird's odd behavior and discovers that his colleague Fazio has gone missing...

The Age of Doubt

As with Camilleri's other Montalbano novels, familiar personalities and settings don't fail to delight. The inspector and his colorful crew remain quirky and unpredictable, and the mysteries continue to entertain. This esteemed series is a great example of local color and characters who will appeal to fans of mysteries set in international locales.

The Potter's Field

Recommended for all public libraries that collect crime fiction. [The Penguin pb, published in September, was a New York Times best seller.—Ed.]
