Summary

Summary

From the New York Times bestselling author of Game of Mirrors, A Beam of Light is the nineteenth installment in the Inspector Montalbano mystery series.

When Inspector Montalbano falls under the charms of beautiful gallery owner Marian, his longtime relationship with Livia comes under threat. Meanwhile, he is also troubled by a strange dream as three crimes demand his attention: the assault and robbery of a wealthy merchant’s young wife, stolen works of art, and a search for arms traffickers that leads him deep into the countryside, where the investigation takes a tragic turn.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Delightful…Fueled by frequent infusions of food, Montalbano comes up with clever solutions to the strange goings-on, even as he’s less than adept at dealing with the women in his life.” Publishers Weekly
“Camilleri’s special talent has always been for using the conventional police procedural as a frame around which to showcase our misguided attempts to get what we think we want from life. Perhaps because he is as misguided as the rest of us, the melancholy Salvo makes an irresistibly appealing observer of the human tragicomedy.” Booklist
“A full plate of unsolved crimes is not enough to prevent a veteran Sicilian police inspector from flirting with disaster…Montalbano’s nineteenth outing has a more melancholy tone than his previous cases but also boasts a nifty, twisty mystery at its core.” Kirkus Reviews
“The novels of Andrea Camilleri breathe out the sense of place, the sense of humor, and the sense of despair that fill the air in Sicily.” Donna Leon, New York Times bestselling author, praise for the author
“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, praise for the author
