The Smell of the Night, the sixth mystery in the international best-selling series featuring Inspector Montalbano, brings the shady shenanigans of late twentieth-century international finance to small-town Sicily. A "financial wizard" entrusted with the savings of nearly half the retirees of Vigata mysteriously disappears with the money and a young man who worked for him. In a rather atypical case for Montalbano, the inspector finds himself initially shut out of the investigation by the ever hostile commissioner Bonetti-Alderighi, and forced to work from the shadows.
Translated by Stephen Sartarelli.
"An intricate plot and a large cast of memorable characters help lift the sixth Inspector Montalbano mystery." (Publishers Weekly)
"Camilleri's hero may be more vulnerable now, but the series is richer than ever, less smooth but with more bite, less Sangiovese and more Barolo." (Booklist)
