9780143120926: The Age of Doubt (Inspector Montalbano)

As seen on TV: now a major BBC4 television series.

A chance encounter with a strange young woman leads Inspector Montalbano to Vigàta harbour – and into a puzzling new mystery. The crew of a mysterious yacht - the Vanna - due to dock in the area have discovered a corpse floating in the water, the dead man’s face badly disfigured. It isn't long before Montalbano begins to become suspicious of the Vanna's inhabitants. Who is the yacht's owner, the glamorous and short-tempered Livia Giovannini? How has she accrued her riches? And why does she spend so much time at sea?

Meanwhile Montalbano finds himself getting into tangles with the dreaded Commissioner, the exasperating Dr Lattes and a very beautiful young woman at the harbour, with whom he becomes dangerously besotted . . . Can the Inspector clear his head long enough to unravel this murky mystery?

Like the antipasti that Montalbano contentedly consumes, the stories are light and easily consumed, leaving one eager for the next course."--New York Journal of Books "This series is distinguished by Camilleri's remarkable feel for tragicomedy, expertly mixing light and dark in the course of producing novels that are both comforting and disturbing." -Booklist "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."--Donna Leon "Hailing from the land of Umberto Eco and La Cosa Nostra, Montalbano can discuss a pointy-headed book like "Western Attitudes Towards Death "as unflinchingly as he can pore over crime-scene snuff photos. He throws together an extemporaneous lunch...as gracefully as he dodges advances from attractive women."--Los Angeles Times "In Sicily, where people do things as they please, Inspector Montalbano is a bona fide folk hero." -The New York Times Book Review "Camilleri as crafty and charming a writer as his protagonist is an investigator." -The Washington Poste

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 190 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From the New York Times bestselling author of The Potter s Field, the fourteenth mystery in Andrea Camilleri s savagely funny (The New York Times Book Review) Inspector Montalbano series The day after a storm floods Vigata, Inspector Montalbano encounters a strange, bedraggled woman who expresses interest in a certain yacht scheduled to dock that afternoon. Not long after she s gone, the crew of the yacht reports having found a dinghy in the port, and within it, a disfigured corpse. Also at anchor is an eighty-five-foot luxury boat with a somewhat shady crew. Both boats will have to stay in Vigata until the investigation is over--the unidentified man was poisoned, it seems. Based on the information--and misinformation--the mysterious woman shared with him, Montalbano begins to think the occupants of the yacht just might know a little more about the man s death than they re letting on.
