Description
Following the long-running success he has enjoyed on bestseller lists in Europe, Inspector Salvo Montalbano is now winning over American readers and critics alike as one of the most engaging protagonists in detective fiction (USA Today). Now, in Excursion to Tindari, Andrea Camilleri's savvy and darkly comic take on Sicilian life leads Montalbano into his most bone-chilling case yet.

In two seemingly unrelated crimes, a young Don Juan is found murdered and an elderly couple is reported missing after an excursion to the ancient site of Tindari. As Montalbano works to solve both cases, he stumbles onto Sicily's ghastly new age of brutal and anonymous criminality.
