Latest reviews

  • “. . . a devastating portrait of how political power, the mafia, Catholic cover-ups, and family shame kept rural Sicily in a medieval time warp long into the twentieth century.”
    — Foreword Reviews, Mar 12 2019
  • “It’s a worthwhile read for the simple fact of learning about the many miscarriages of justice the family suffers.”
    — Historical Novel Society, Aug 15 2018
  • “Camilleri is as adept at the historical novel as he is at the detective story. Both are steeped in a deep and passionate knowledge of his subject. It’s a story told with the customary wit and light touch that only a consummate storyteller could manage.”
    — Nudge Book, Aug 9 2018
  • “It has a gripping immediacy, telling an epic tale in a series of gobsmacking anecdotes.”
    — The Times, Jul 29 2018
  • " organized crime, political corruption, and judicial duplicity can oppress freedom.”
    — Publishers Weekly, Jul 21 2018

    — NewsOK, Jul 15 2018

    — Book City, Jul 1 2018
  • “The injustice here has an immediacy...”
    — Kirkus, May 1 2018

    — European Literature Network, Jun 15 2017
  • “A beautifully imagined recreation of seventeenth century Sicily and a little known event that rightly deserves its place in history.”
    — Nudge Book, Jun 5 2017
  • “Based on a truly captivating moment in history, Camilleri shows us how a woman triumphed over remarkable obstacles and, in the face of ceaseless scrutiny, how she proved to the world that she was as an unwavering as the brightest moon.”
    — Words Without Borders, May 15 2017
  • “Eleonora, a woman forgotten by history, will come alive to the reader. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to discover a remarkable, forgotten woman.”
    — The Historical Novels Review, May 1 2017
  • “[Camilleri’s] sly, wry approach to matters of morality, politics, crime and sexual dynamics seasons a stew of facts and fiction to perfection.”

  • “Bestselling and award-winning Italian author Camilleri (the Inspector Montalbano series) offers a marvelous historical drama based on a true but little-known episode of 17th-century Sicilian history.”
    — Publishers Weekly, Apr 10 2017
  • “In a tragicomic parable of justice based on a true episode, the corrupt 17th-century power brokers of Sicily meet their match in a canny, revenge-driven female viceroy.”
    — Kirkus Reviews, Feb 21 2017
