The Smell of the Night, the sixth mystery in the international bestselling series featuring Inspector Montalbano, brings the shady shenanigans of late twentieth-century international finance to small-town Sicily. Half the retirees in Vigáta have invested their savings with a financial wizard who has disappeared, along with their money and a young man who worked for him. As Montalbano investigates this labyrinthine financial scam, he finds himself at a serious disadvantage: a hostile superior has shut him out of the case, he’s on the outs with his lover Livia, and his cherished Sicily is turning so ruthless and vulgar that Montalbano wonders if any part of it is worth saving. As a result, he’s forced to work from the shadows. Drenched with atmosphere and crackling with wit, The Smell of the Night is Camilleri at his most addictive.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Camilleri is as crafty and charming a writer as his protagonist is an investigator.” Washington Post
“Sly humor, an eye for beauty, a disdain for clichés and fools plus a first-rate intelligence make [Montalbano] formidable both as a detective and as a companion.” Publishers Weekly
“A crisp, sassy series, even laugh-out-loud funny at moments, with a grounding of humanity that shows particularly at the end; Montalbano is a character worth getting to know.” Library Journal
“Camilleri’s hero may be more vulnerable now, but the series is richer than ever.” Booklist
