Summary

Summary

From New York Times bestselling author Andrea Camilleri comes a brilliant, bawdy comedy that will surprise even the most die-hard Montalbano fans.

In 1880s Vig├áta, a stranger comes to town to open a pharmacy. Fof├▓ turns out to be the son of a man made legendary for having a magic garden stocked with plants, fruits, and vegetables that could cure any ailment—a man who was found murdered years ago. Fof├▓ escaped but has now reappeared looking to make his fortune and soon finds himself mixed up in the dealings of a philandering local marchese set on producing an heir.

An absurd, quirky murder mystery that recalls the most hilarious and farcical scenes of Shakespeare and The Canterbury Tales, Hunting Season will introduce American readers to a refreshing new aspect of one of our best-loved writers.

Editorial Reviews

“First published in 1992, this bawdy little gem from the author of the Inspector Montalbano series shares a theme with the Alex Guinness movie classic Kind Hearts and Coronets and possesses a wit that Boccaccio would have appreciated…As the ‘accidental’ deaths begin to multiply, the delightfully quirky residents of Vigata indulge in endless rumors and speculation.” Publishers Weekly
