  • 2. Descriptions The Shape of Water (Montalbano 1)The goats of Vigata once grazed on the trash-strewn site still known as the Pasture. Now localenterprise of a different sort flourishes: drug dealers and prostitutes of every flavour. But theirdiscreet trade is upset when two employees of the Splendour Refuse Collection Companydiscover the body of engineer Silvio Luparello, one of the local movers and shakers, apparentlydeceased in flagrante at the Pasture. The coroner’s verdict is death from natural causes –refreshingly unusual for Sicily. But Inspector Salvo Montalbano, as honest as he is streetwiseand as scathing to fools and villains as he is compassionate to their victims, is not ready to closethe case – even though he’s being pressured by Vigata’s police chief, judge, and bishop.

To read him is to be taken to that glorious, tortured island’Donna Leon ‘Both farcical and endearing, Montalbano is a cross between Columbo andChandler’s Philip Marlowe, with the added culinary idiosyncrasies of an Italian Maigret’Guardian The Snack Thief (Montalbano 3)Never has Inspector Montalbano’s character – a unique blend of humor, cynicism, compassion,earthiness, and love of good food – been more compelling than in The Snack Thief. When anelderly man is stabbed to death in an elevator and a crewman on an Italian fishing trawler ismachine-gunned by a Tunisian patrol boat off Sicily’s coast, only InspectorMontalbano suspects a link between the two incidents. His investigation leads to the beautifulKarima, an impoverished house cleaner and sometime prostitute………Continue @ Andrea Camilleri Books
