[Translated by Stephen Sartarelli]

Interest in Andrea Camilleri's taciturn but epicurean inspector is at an all-time high. And with three of the last five novels in the series, including the award-winning The Potter's Field, hitting the New York Times bestseller list, this latest installment is certain to up the ante and win over a multitude of new fans.

In Treasure Hunt Inspector Montalbano is hailed as a hero after news cameras film him scaling a building, gun in hand, to capture a pair of unlikely snipers. Shortly thereafter the inspector begins to receive cryptic messages in verse from someone challenging him to a treasure hunt. Intrigued, he accepts, treating the messages as amusing riddles until they take a dangerous turn.

About the Author:

ANDREA CAMILLERI is one of Italy's most famous contemporary writers. The 'Inspector Montalbano' series has been translated into thirty-two languages and was adapted for Italian television, screened on BBC4. The Potter's Field, the thirteenth book in the series, was awarded the Crime Writers' Association's International Dagger for the best crime novel translated into English. He lives in Rome.

Review:

''Superlative . . . Once again, Camilleri's sardonic sense of humor distinguishes this Mediterranean crime novel from the pack.'' --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Andrea Camilleri and the Inspector Montalbano Series:

''Hailing from the land of Umberto Eco and La Casa Nostra, Montalbano can discuss a pointy-headed book like Western Attitudes Toward Death as unflinchingly as he can pore over crime-scene snuff photos. He throws together an extemporaneous lunch of shrimp with lemon wedges and oil as gracefully as he dodges advances from attractive women.'' --Los Angeles Times

''[Camilleri's mysteries] offer quirky characters, crisp dialogue, bright storytelling -- and Salvo Montalbano, one of the most engaging protagonists in detective fiction . . . Montalbano is a delightful creation, an honest man on Sicily's mean streets.'' --USA Today

''Camilleri is as crafty and charming a writer as his protagonist is an investigator.'' --The Washington Post Book World

''Like Mike Hammer or Sam Spade, Montalbano is the kind of guy who can't stay out of trouble . . . Still, deftly and lovingly translated by Stephen Sartarelli, Camilleri makes it abundantly clear that under the gruff, sardonic exterior our inspector has a heart of gold, and that any outburst, fumbles, or threats are made only in the name of pursuing truth.'' --The Nation

''Camilleri can do a character's whole backstory in half a paragraph.'' --The New Yorker
