From internationally bestselling author Andrea Camilleri comes a brilliant, bawdy comedy that will surprise even the most die-hard Montalbano fans.
In 1880s Vigàta, a stranger comes to town to open a pharmacy. Fofò turns out to be the son of a man made legendary for having a magic garden stocked with plants, fruits, and vegetables that could cure any ailment - a man who was found murdered years ago. Fofò escaped but has now reappeared looking to make his fortune and soon finds himself mixed up in the dealings of a philandering local marchese set on producing an heir.
An absurd, quirky murder mystery that recalls the most hilarious and farcical scenes of Shakespeare and The Canterbury Tales, HuntingSeason will introduce American readers to a refreshing new aspect of one of our best-loved writers.

Although I sort of knew how this would end, the journey was not as expected. So you must just keep listening. And listening to Grover Gardner is always a pleasure.
Camilleri is an excellent writer. Unfortunately, though I'm sure he tries his best, the reader is singularly unsuccessful narrating the author's works. He sounds more suited to reading Ed McBain 87th Precinct novels.
