The New 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 Preston, it’s called, and the Vigatese are revving up to wreak havoc on the performance’s opening night.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Fans of Camilleri’s Inspector Montalbano series will relish this amusing, playful tale.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Hilarious…Camilleri is a great plotter, and his books are filled with action (mayhem, usually), but the dominant note in all his fiction is humor. Sometimes the amusing prose is sly and witty, but most usually it’s demotic, outright bawdy…The author’s literacy sits lightly throughout but is another small, cunning pleasure in a book full of delightful surprises.”

    Library Journal

  • “In nineteenth-century Sicily, a cornucopia of craziness surrounds the première of an opera buffo in a small music-loving town…Fans of Camilleri’s long-running Inspector Montalbano series will be familiar with his brand of lusty lunacy, carried here to a degree that rivals Boccaccio.”
