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.

Have read a number of novels in the Inspector Montalbano series and have thoroughly enjoyed them all. Montalbano himself is roguish, insightful, and philosophical. However, it's his understanding of the human condition that makes him an outstanding detective, as he often finds himself caught between the most beautiful and the ugliest aspects of life. Montalbano's functionality is rooted in his awareness of the nature of people and events in his locale. He is as much a part of the landscape as the tree he muses beneath and the sea he contemplates. Wonderfully idiosyncratic characters populate these books, as well as incomparable local color and lore. Told with wit and style, these mysteries are more than simply whodunits, but journeys into the human heart.

Excursion to Tindari is #5 in the Inspector Montalbano series. Fans, and newcomers, will not be disappointed. Twists, turns, mysteries and the subtle humor that is the trademark of these addicting stories are all present here.
Get it, you will love it.
