August Heat (Inspector Montalbano Series #10) by Andrea Camilleri

“You either love Andrea Camilleri or you haven’t read him yet. Each novel in this wholly addictive, entirely magical series, set in Sicily and starring a detective unlike any other in crime fiction, blasts the brain like a shot of pure oxygen... transporting. Long live Camilleri, and long live Montalbano.”
—A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window 

When a colleague extends his summer vacation, Inspector Salvo Montalbano is forced to stay in Vigàta and endure the August heat. Montalbano's long-suffering girlfriend, Livia, joins him with a friend—husband and young son in tow—to keep her company during these dog days of summer. But when the boy suddenly disappears into a narrow shaft hidden under the family's beach rental, Montalbano, in pursuit of the child, uncovers something terribly sinister. As the inspector spends the summer trying to solve this perplexing case, Livia refuses to answer his calls-and Montalbano is left to take a plunge that will affect the rest of his life.

Fans of the Sicilian inspector as well as readers new to the popular series will enjoy following the melancholy but unflinchingly moral Montalbano as he undertakes one of the most shocking investigations of his career.

If you like Donna Leon's stories with Commisario Brunetti and Venice you'll probably also like Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano stories centered in Sicily. A little more down to earth than Brunetti's world, Camilleri also gives you a flavor for the people, food, locale and social atmosphere in which Montalbano's life revolves. Keeps your interest from start to finish with several subplots and various twists and turns.

We've grown accustomed to Camilleri's voice, and he creates a wonderful and believable picture of the Inspector in his piece of Sicily. I hope that we can read more in this series and eventually see the adaptation on TV!
