The Terracotta Dog
The Terracotta Dog, the second book in Andrea Camilleri’s Inspector Montalbano series, opens with a mysterious tete-a-tete with a Mafioso, some inexplicably abandoned loot from a supermarket heist, and some dying words that lead Inspector Montalbano to a secret grotto in a mountain cave where two young lovers dead fifty years and still embracing are watched over by a life-size terracotta dog. Montalbano’s passion to solve this old crime takes him, heedless of personal danger, on a journey through the island’s past and into a family’s dark heart amid the horrors of World War II.
Andrea Camilleri’s Inspector Salvo Montalbano has garnered millions of fans worldwide with his sardonic, engaging take on Sicilian small-town life and his genius for deciphering the most enigmatic of crimes.
The Terracotta Dog is followed by the third title in this satirical and humorous series, The Snack Thief.
PRAISE FOR THE SERIES
“A magnificent series of novels” Sunday Times
“There’s a deliciously playful quality to the mysteries Andrea Camilleri writes about a lusty Sicilian police detective named Salvo Montalbano.” New York Times Book Review
“Camilleri as crafty and charming a writer as his protagonist is an investigator.” The Washington Post
“The books are full of sharp, precise characterizations and with subplots that make Montalbano endearingly human … Like the antipasti that Montalbano contentedly consumes, the stories are light and easily consumed, leaving one eager for the next course.” New York Journal of Books
“This series is distinguished by Camilleri’s remarkable feel for tragicomedy, expertly mixing light and dark in the course of producing novels that are both comforting and disturbing.” Booklist
