The Overnight Kidnapper is the twenty-third Inspector Montalbano mystery, from the international bestselling author Andrea Camilleri.

After a hectic morning involving two rather irritating cases of mistaken identity, Inspector Montalbano finally arrives in his office ready find out what's troubling Vigata this week. What he discovers is unnerving. A woman on her way home from work has been held up at gunpoint, chloroformed and kidnapped, but then released just hours later - unharmed and with all her possessions - into the open countryside.

Later that day, Montalbano hears from Enzo, the owner of his favourite restaurant, that his niece has recently been the victim of the exact same crime. Before long, a third instance of this baffling overnight kidnapping has been reported.

As far as Montalbano can tell, there is no link between the attacker and the victims. So what exactly is this mystery assailant gaining from these fleeting kidnappings? And what can he do to stop them? Montalbano must use all his logic and intuition if he is to answer these pressing questions before the kidnapper finds his next victim . . .

The Overnight Kidnapper is followed by the twenty-fourth gripping mystery, The Other End of the Line.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 * Guardian *
Among the most exquisitely crafted pieces of crime writing available today . . . Simply superb * Sunday Times *
One of fiction's greatest detectives and Camilleri is one of Europe's greatest crime writers * Daily Mail *
The Overnight Kidnapper is an ideal beach read or a prefect winter evening companion. It's the light tone, the humorous relationships between the characters and the farcical situations that arise in the novels that makes them so enjoyable . . . If you are new to Montalbano, aside from going back to the beginning, this would be an excellent place to start. * NB Magazine *
