Giveaway: The Age of Doubt by Andrea Camilleri

Have you read any of Andrea Camilleri's Salvo Montalbano mysteries? His protagonist is a police inspector in Sicily, Italy, and the latest book in the series is finally coming out in English on May 29.

I haven't read any of Camilleri's books yet, but I have them on my wish list. The Age of Doubt is the thirteenth book in the series, and here is the summary:

With their dark sophistication and dry humor, Andrea Camilleri's hugely popular Sicilian crime novels continue to win more and more fans in America. The day after a storm, Inspector Montalbano encounters a strange woman who expresses interest in a certain yacht scheduled to dock that afternoon. Not long after she's gone, the yacht's crew reports finding a disfigured corpse. Also at anchor is a luxury vessel with a somewhat shady crew. Both boats will have to stay in Vigàta until the investigation is over and, based on information from the woman, Montalbano begins to think the occupants of the yacht might know more about the man's death than they're letting on.
Sounds like a good summer mystery, and I'm curious about the Italian setting.

Celebration Gift Basket: To celebrate the release of The Age of Doubt, Penguin has put together a fabulous gift basket that contains "all 14 Inspector Montalbano novels as well as a selection of Italian foods, including pasta, sauce, olives, Italian desserts, roasted red peppers, olive oil, and cheese from Mario Batali’s Eataly, the gift basket is valued at $500!"
