The Smell of the Night: An Inspector Montalbano Mystery

A "financial wizard" entrusted with the savings of nearly half the retirees of Vigata mysteriously disappears with the money and a young man who worked for him. In a rather atypical case for Montalbano, the inspector finds himself initially shut out of the investigation by the ever hostile commissioner Bonetti-Alderighi, and forced to work from the shadows.

What the Critics Say

"An intricate plot and a large cast of memorable characters help lift the sixth Inspector Montalbano mystery." (Publishers Weekly)
"Camilleri's hero may be more vulnerable now, but the series is richer than ever, less smooth but with more bite, less Sangiovese and more Barolo." (Booklist)

    "Very enjoyable!"

    I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was good and the story carried me briskly along, with sympathetic characters, and enough twists to keep me interested. I had been reading a lot of heavy texts recently and needed a palate cleanser. This was had just the right amount of humor and wit. I will definitely pursue the series further.
