A collection of mysteries, adapted for BBC4's Inspector Montalbano series.

From the title story, 'Death at Sea', in which the alleged manslaughter of an engineer upon a fishing trawler leads Inspector Montalbano to uncover an even more sinister crime, Andrea Camilleri takes his readers through eight cunning cases from the Vigatan police files.

Starting with an arson attack on a hotel that leaves the distraught owner as the chief suspect; to the mysterious case of a woman who goes missing in an underpass with a million lira in her handbag; to a threat on Montalbano's own life, as an anonymous motorcyclist takes a shot at the detective.

Featuring stories adapted for BBC4's Inspector Montalbano, this is the perfect place to start reading Sicily's favourite crime author.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Among the most exquisitely crafted pieces of crime writing available today . . . Simply superb' - The Sunday Times 

'One of fiction's greatest detectives and Camilleri is one of Europe's greatest crime writers' - The Daily Mail 

'Montalbano's colleagues, chance encounters, Sicilian mores, even the contents of his fridge are described with the wit and gusto that make this narrator the best company in crime fiction today' - The Guardian 

'The godfather of Italian crime fiction... Rattling and wry detective fiction... These are police procedurals in which procedures are seldom followed.' - The Observer
