“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
Andrea Camilleri’s Inspector Montalbano novels have become an international sensation, with fans eagerly awaiting each new installment.
In Game of Mirrors, Inspector Montalbano and his colleagues are stumped when two bombs explode outside empty warehouses—one of which is connected to a big-time drug dealer. Meanwhile, the alluring Liliana Lombardo is trying to seduce the Inspector over red wine and arancini. Between pesky reporters, amorous trysts, and cocaine kingpins, Montalbano feels as if he’s being manipulated on all fronts. That is, until the inspector himself becomes the prime suspect in an unspeakably brutal crime.
In Camilleri's amiable 18th mystery featuring Insp. Salvo Montalbano (after 2014's Angelica's Smile), the Sicilian policeman faces several unusual problems. A bomb explodes in front of an empty Vig ta warehouse; someone vandalizes the car of Montalbano's beautiful neighbor, Liliana Lombardo, whose husband, Adriano, is seldom home; an unexplained bullet hole appears in Montalbano's car; and, as usual, TV newsman Pippo Ragonese and Commissioner Bonetti-Alderighi are giving him grief. Montalbano soon realizes that people are trying to lead him and his team into a "hall of mirrors" to derail the bombing investigation. Meanwhile, Liliana embarks on a not-so-subtle campaign to seduce him that is as enjoyable as it is suspicious. Series fans and newcomers alike will relish Montalbano's appetite for good food and beverages, his love of a quiet think, and his ability to turn the tables on the criminals and his tormentors.
