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 was awarded the Crime Writers' Association's International Dagger for the best crime novel translated into English. His other novels include Angelica's Smile and Game of Mirrors. He lives in Rome.

Review:

''One of the best installments in the entire 'Inspector Montalbano' series.'' --New York Journal of Books

''Clever...As usual, Montalbano wants to wrap up [the] cases quickly so he can get back to his real work - sleeping, eating, drinking, and dealing with his long-distance girlfriend, Livia.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Filled with Camilleri's usual humor and irreverence, this story will delight more than just his fans. Prolific [audiobook] reader (more than 700 titles to his credit) Grover Gardner has narrated every English translation of this mystery series, and he continues to be the perfect voice for the irascible Montalbano. Recommended.'' --Library Journal (starred audio review)

''Montalbano has never been one for just the facts, ma'am, but his thirteenth recorded case goes appealingly over the top into slapstick and character-driven farce. Especially recommended for series fans and mystery readers who enjoy the journey more than the solution.'' --Kirkus Reviews
