Andrea Camilleri An Inspector Montalbano Mystery 5 Books Collection Pack Set
Title in This Collection:
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.
The Voice of the Violin
In this latest novel, Montalbano's gruesome discovery of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the suspects are her ageing husband, a famous doctor; a shy admirer, now disappeared; an antiques-dealing lover from Bologna; and the victim''s friend Anna, whose charms Montalbano cannot help but appreciate. But it is a mysterious, reclusive violinist who holds the key to this murder.
The Snack Thief
In the third book in Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano series, the urbane and perceptive Sicilian detective exposes a viper''s nest of government corruption and international intrigue in a compelling new case. When an elderly man is stabbed to death in an elevator and a crewman on an Italian fishing trawler is machine-gunned by a Tunisian patrol boat off Sicily's coast, only Montalbano suspects the link between the two incidents.
The Terracotta Dog
In sunny Sicily, in a small coastal town, Inspector Salvo Montalbano is juggling an assortment of puzzling cases. His old school friend, now a pimp, has, for some mysterious reason, arranged a meeting between Salvo and a crime boss; a local supermarket is broken into and looted, yet the goods are found abandoned at a gas station the next day; a elderly man dies in a single-car accident after telling Montalbano he has information for him; the body of a stranger is found in a car trunk.
The Shape of Water
When a local politician is found dead in his car, half naked, in a seedy neighbourhood known for prostitution and drug trafficking, it's assumed that he died of natural causes in the middle of a sexual escapade. Hoping to avoid an embarrassing situation, Montalbano's superiors expect him to close the case quickly. But the inspector senses that not all is as it seems and determinedly launches a full investigation.
