Publisher Comments:

In time for Andrea Camilleris ninetieth birthday, the nineteenth installment of his irresistible New York Times–bestselling Inspector Montalbano Mystery series

 

Mystery lovers and armchair travelers alike adore Andrea Camilleris Inspector Montalbano series—four of his last five books were on the New York Times bestseller list.

A Beam of Light opens with the Minister of the Interior stopping off in Vigàta on the way to Lampedusa, where thousands of Tunisian immigrants have come ashore. Hoping to avoid the commotion, Inspector Montalbano takes refuge in the towns new art gallery, where he meets its beautiful owner Marian and his commitment to his long-term girlfriend Livia wavers. But soon, a vicious attack spurs Montalbano to investigate a series of crimes—including assault, arms trafficking, and stolen works of art—culminating with an illuminating surprise. 

Synopsis:

In the third in the internationally bestselling series featuring the irresistible Sicilian Inspector Montalbano, the detective exposes a viper's nest of government corruption and international intrigue in a compelling new case.

Synopsis:

In the third book in Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano series, the urbane and perceptive Sicilian detective exposes a viper's nest of government corruption and international intrigue in a compelling new case. When an elderly man is stabbed to death in an elevator and a crewman on an Italian fishing trawler is machine-gunned by a Tunisian patrol boat off Sicily's coast, only Montalbano suspects the link between the two incidents. His investigation leads to the beautiful Karima, an impoverished housecleaner and sometime prostitute, whose young son steals other schoolchildren's midmorning snacks. But Karima disappears, and the young snack thief's life—as well as Montalbano's—is on the line...
