The Terracotta Dog Paperback
Part of the Inspector Montalbano Mysteries series
The Terracotta Dog, the second book in Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano series, opens with a mysterious tete-a-tete with a Mafioso, some inexplicably abandoned loot from a supermarket heist, and some dying words that lead Inspector Montalbano to a secret grotto in a mountain cave where two young lovers dead fifty years and still embracing are watched over by a life-size terracotta dog.
Montalbano's passion to solve this old crime takes him, heedless of personal danger, on a journey through the island's past and into a family's dark heart amid the horrors of World War II. Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Salvo Montalbano has garnered millions of fans worldwide with his sardonic, engaging take on Sicilian small-town life and his genius for deciphering the most enigmatic of crimes. The Terracotta Dog is followed by the third title in this satirical and humorous series, The Snack Thief.
