Excursion to Tindari
Date: August 2009
Duration: 6 hours 29 minutes
Inspector Salvo Montalbano has come to be known as "one of the most engaging protagonists in detective fiction" (USA Today). In Excursion to Tindari, Andrea Camilleri's savvy and darkly comic take on Sicilian life leads the inspector into his most bone-chilling case yet.
A young Don Juan is found murdered in front of his apartment building early one morning, and an elderly couple is reported missing after an excursion to the ancient site of Tindari-two seemingly unrelated cases for Inspector Montalbano to solve amid the daily complications of life at Vigàta police headquarters. But when Montalbano discovers that the couple and the murdered young man lived in the same building, his investigation stumbles onto Sicily's brutal "New Mafia," which leads him down a path more evil and far-reaching than any he has been on before.
