Waterstones Says

The 24th Inspector Montalbano novel finds our beloved Salvo investigating the grisly death of a local dressmaker amid a burgeoning migrant crisis on the Sicilian shore. As consistently gripping and evocative as ever, Camilleri’s latest sings with Sicilian dialect and meticulous, fast-paced plotting. A must read for all lovers of continental crime.  

The Other End of the Line is the twenty-fourth Inspector Montalbano mystery from the international bestselling author Andrea Camilleri.

In Inspector Montalbano's coastal town of Vigata, a surge of migrants have been coming in by boat, and all the town's hands are on deck to help the arrivals. At the heart of the scene are the police - on the lookout for the people smugglers responsible - and long night-shifts are rendering Inspector Montalbano and his officers exhausted.

Then one night, while Montalbano is enduring yet another gruelling stint at the port, a separate crime is committed - unexplained, unexpected, and unpleasant. Elena, the dressmaker at the town's famous tailors, has been found dead - slaughtered by her own scissors . . .

As a swell of desperate people arrive in search of a better life, Inspector Montalbano finds himself trying to unravel the mystery of who murdered the dressmaker. But as he makes his enquiries, the Inspector can't help but wonder: what will happen if he keeps tugging on this thread? And what will he find at the end of the line?

“Good.”

Very enjoyable and different to the usual run of murder mysteries. The way of life really comes alive as do the characters. I've got the whole series and watch it when it's on TV. SD
