    Having read a few of these Montalbano protagonist from the Sicilian series before, I have to say this one was the best so far The game of mirrors being played between Montalbano and his next door neighbor, Liliana Lombardo, beyond the larger working case of mysterious assault is a top notch quality dance The nuance, the implication, the locale feel every detail becomes mirrored reflections from either side of the lane the houses share and their occupants Amidst the steamy, witty and near Having read a few of these Montalbano protagonist from the Sicilian series before, I have to say this one was the best so far The game of mirrors being played between Montalbano and his next door neighbor, Liliana Lombardo, beyond the larger working case of mysterious assault is a top notch quality dance The nuance, the implication, the locale feel every detail becomes mirrored reflections from either side of the lane the houses share and their occupants Amidst the steamy, witty and nearly in every other encounter, also dicey Manners too and the use of dialect language and printing the words running all together within and without all the wider array of characters All the shades Either the Sicilian manners supreme in languorous coffee, wine, or delectable morsel accompanied or the female matron aggression to offend first and so not finish last or outside the loop of the in the know power Or the mumbling assistant who swallows all the ends of the words Few things are as they seem Some lovers are not Successful computer business and other enterprise questionable I can t say it as well as Donna Leon says on the front cover quote The novels of Andrea Camilleri breathe out the sense of place, the sense of humor, and the sense of despair that fills the air of Sicily Said well And the pages of Notes at the end of these editions are absolutely priceless They define the Sicilian phrases or implied language context nuance better than any other translation aid I have come across It s 4.5 star, this one.Now I absolutely have to find myself some of Adelina s sartu di riso alla calabrisa, which I have never had but sounds delectable I will have to settle for pasta alla carrettiera instead as I have my hot peppers from the garden in my freezer

    This is one of the crime series that although it seldom strays into new territory never seems dull Every time I read one of the Montablano series I feel like I am in the company of an old friend Eager to hear of the latest great meals eaten, how the mutual acquaintances are faring and yes of course be reassuringly led through a Sicilian mystery Deeply satisfying if you are a fan.

    An exquisite read from Andrea Camilleri one of my favourite authors This book is interchangable with the TV series Inspector Montalbano as the novel is closely followed in that script However there isnuance and humour in the written word and it represents everything I like about this author.The Inspector is at a difficult age and when he comes to the aid of a new neighbour,both nubile and stunningly beautiful, a friendship developes that if he is not too careful could ruin his career, no An exquisite read from Andrea Camilleri one of my favourite authors This book is interchangable with the TV series Inspector Montalbano as the novel is closely followed in that script However there isnuance and humour in the written word and it represents everything I like about this author.The Inspector is at a difficult age and when he comes to the aid of a new neighbour,both nubile and stunningly beautiful, a friendship developes that if he is not too careful could ruin his career, not to mention his longstanding relationship with Livia The only one possibly with this aim would be Adelina his housekeeper, possibly the most important women in his life who hates his girlfriend.Bombs, drugs, mafia influence, attempted murder, corruption and press manipulation variously muddy the waters of the investigation If Montalbano can stay focus, maybe, just maybe he will crack this case.As usual the story is full of great relationships, wonderful dialogue and characters so real they lift from the page The grumpy old man left smoking outside is a marvelous example of Camillera s eye and ear for authentic detail and amusing interactions.Everyone loves Cat and it is good to see development of Fazio as one of his most reliable officers and a loyal friend.If you enjoy this TV version then these books should delight and entertain you I hope you ll readif won over by this series of crime novels set in the Italian world of Sicillian life

    This is the 18th installment in Camilleri s Montalbano series, and from day one I ve thoroughly enjoyed each and every book That hasn t changed, although it does seem to me that Camilleri has taken aserious direction this time around Salvo is still Salvo though, still eating at Enzo s trattoria, still taking time to meditate on his rock, and still getting in trouble with the ladies while Livia isn t around This time it s his new neighbor, the knock out Signora Liliana Lombardo As usual This is the 18th installment in Camilleri s Montalbano series, and from day one I ve thoroughly enjoyed each and every book That hasn t changed, although it does seem to me that Camilleri has taken aserious direction this time around Salvo is still Salvo though, still eating at Enzo s trattoria, still taking time to meditate on his rock, and still getting in trouble with the ladies while Livia isn t around This time it s his new neighbor, the knock out Signora Liliana Lombardo As usual, Montalbano s strange dream opens the novel, interrupted thankfully by a call reporting that a bomb has gone off somewhere No one is hurt, thank goodness, but trying to discover who set it off and why is the squad s major challenge As the investigation proceeds, Liliana is doing all she can to seduce the Inspector both publicly and privately, leading Salvo to question her motivation Not that he s not an attractive man, but still even to him she s overdoing it While the bombing investigation proceeds, Salvo finds himself under fire from his TV reporter nemesis Ragonese, but when things start to escalate and dead bodies start turning up, Salvo realizes that someone really has it in for him By the time things come to this point, the hunt is on for exactly who this might be, andspecifically, why Salvo himself has become a target He is, in short, faced with a a series of occurrences without any apparent reason behind them Reading this novel, you might notice that this book isn t quite as funny or as critical as the past installments have been and that here the focus seems to be muchon trying to connect the dots between a series of strange crimes At the same time, the story has all the same characters, relationships, and dialogue that together with Montalbano s quirkiness have kept me reading through eighteen books I think what I enjoy most about this book beyond the usual craziness and the convoluted crimes is Camilleri s flair for catching the people whom one might run into on the streets There s a great scene 184,185 , for example, where an old man is sitting in a building s courtyard, smoking a pipe, complaining that he doesn t talk to his daughter because she doesn t want him smoking inside the house The old guy is just so perfectly captured here that you can t help but laugh, especially when he punctuates his complaints by spitting a clot of dense brown material that looked like prune jam PLEASE do not let this book be your first introduction to Camilleri s novels you will have missed precisely what makes these books so wonderful and so worth the wait for each and every new book Getting back to the oddball combination of realistic crazy people in these books is the highlight of each installment I will be SO incredibly bummed when this series is over

    m a latecomer to this series, but am loving it My next step is to go back and read the earlier ones I ve been an enthusiastic reader of Donna Leon s Inspector Brunetti series Although Brunetti and Montalbano are as different as they can be Brunetti is a married northerner with two children who has the disdain that Italians from the north have for those from the south Montalbano is a Sicilian through and through His girlfriend is from Genoa They squabble a lot, and he is often unfaithfu m a latecomer to this series, but am loving it My next step is to go back and read the earlier ones I ve been an enthusiastic reader of Donna Leon s Inspector Brunetti series Although Brunetti and Montalbano are as different as they can be Brunetti is a married northerner with two children who has the disdain that Italians from the north have for those from the south Montalbano is a Sicilian through and through His girlfriend is from Genoa They squabble a lot, and he is often unfaithful , they are also very similar in a lot of ways They both enjoy good food from their own regions They are both very bright and very very honest Both have also learned the fine Italian art of flattering their superiors and not making too many waves except when absolutely necessary Both know that that corruption is all around them although neither gives in to it Both walk a fine line In this latest book, empty warehouses are being bombed Why Makes no sense, right In the meantime, a beautiful woman and her often absent husband have moved in nearby She does her best to seduce him He can t help but wonder why As things progress, he starts to see a connection between her and the bombings, but it s tenuous at best I guess my only complaint here is that, like the Brunetti books, there are way too many mouth watering discussions of food Plus, since my family is from Southern Italy, I m farfamiliar with the food that Montalbano is enjoying When I read about eggplant parmesan or arrancini rice balls as big as oranges, it can be really hard to stay focused on the story Still, as always, this is a super fun series


  8. Tuck Tuck says:

    a fairly light dish in the montalba feast of crime and detection books of camilleri s, but still lots of whiskey drank, squid ink eaten, cigs smoked, crabs pestered, meetings with the cmishner, eerie deaths and crimes, etc perhaps the 17th or so inspector montalbano mystery series now in english a star missing for the recipes that are missing.


  9. Diane Standish Diane Standish says:

    This one rates as one of his best so far Number 18 in the series, and I just can t get my fill of Salvo and the crew I will be so sad when the series is done I never or rarely reread, but I am going to reread this series Great story, great characters.
