LoveReading Expert Review of The Terracotta Dog

Another witty and charming novel from Camilleri. There are several mysteries in this novel all seemingly linked and allowing the author to cover all sorts of subject matter entrenched in the history of Sicily, as well as his mention of several dishes of delicious sounding food. This is the second in the series and we do recommend you read them in order.

The Terracotta Dog Synopsis

Set in Sicily, The Terracotta Dog is the second novel in the humorous Inspector Montalbano series by Andrea Camilleri. *Adapted for BBC4's Inspector Montalbano series* After a cloak and dagger exchange with an ageing Mafioso, Inspector Montalbano is left haunted by the man's dying words, which lead him to a mountainside just west of Vigata where he unearths two young lovers, dead fifty years and still embracing, watched over by a life-size terracotta dog. Heedless of personal danger, Montalbano's drive to solve this old crime forces him on a journey through Sicily's World War II history and to the dark heart of one family . . . The Terracotta Dog is followed by the third title in this satirical series, The Snack Thief.
