York Times bestselling author
of the Inspector Montalbano series brings us back to Vigàta in the nineteenth
century for a rip-roaring comic novel.
1870s, Sicily. Much
to the displeasure of Vigàta’s stubborn populace, the town has just been
unified under the Kingdom of Italy. They’re now in the hands of a new
government they don’t understand and definitely don’t like. Eugenio
Bortuzzi has been named prefect for Vigàta, a regional representative from the
Italian government to oversee the town. But the rowdy and unruly Sicilians
don’t care much for this rather pompous mainlander nor the mediocre opera he’s
hell-bent on producing in their new municipal theater. The Brewer of
called, and the Vigatese are revving up to wreak havoc on the performance’s
opening night. Download and start listening now!
