Editorial Reviews

Praise for Treasure Hunt:“Camilleri’s sardonic sense of humor distinguishes this Mediterranean crime novel from the pack.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)"Montalbano's 16th case...is his most entertaining in years, veering from slapstick humor to Grand Guignol with aplomb."—Kirkus (starred review)“A mishmash of police procedural, gothic horror story, and Keystone Kops comedy….This is the 16th entry in Camilleri’s series featuring Montalbano. It’s one of the best.”—Library JournalPraise for Andrea Camilleri and the Inspector Montalbano Series: “Camilleri’s Inspector Montalbano mysteries might sell like hotcakes in Europe, but these world-weary crime stories were unknown here until the oversight was corrected (in Stephen Sartarelli’s salty translation) by the welcome publication of The Shape of Water…This savagely funny police procedural…prove[s] that sardonic laughter is a sound that translates ever so smoothly into English.”—The New York Times Book Review  “Hailing from the land of Umberto Eco and La Cosa 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 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
