Author(s): Andrea Camilleri
From internationally bestselling author Andrea Camilleri, a brilliant, bawdy historical novel that will surprise even the most die-hard Montalbano fans. In 1880s Vigata, a stranger comes to town to open a pharmacy. Fofo turns out to be the son of a man legendary for having a magic garden stocked with plants, fruits, and vegetables that could cure any ailment-a man who was found murdered years ago. Fofo escaped, but now has reappeared looking to make his fortune and soon finds himself mixed up in the dealings of a philandering local Marchese set on producing an heir. An absurd, quirky historical murder mystery that recalls the most hilarious and farcical scenes of Shakespeare and The Canterbury Tales, Hunting Season will introduce readers to a refreshing new aspect of one of Italy's best-loved writers.
