Content descriptions

General Note: In English, translated from the Italian.
Summary, etc.: "The day gets off to a bad start for Montalbano: while trying to break up a fight on Marinella beach, he hits the wrong man and is stopped by the Carabinieri. When he finally gets to the office, the inspector learns about a strange abduction: a woman was abducted, drugged, and then released unharmed a few hours later. A few days later, the same thing happens again. The only link between the two events is that both women are thirty years old and work in a bank. Alongside this investigation, Montalbano has to deal with an arson case. A shop that sells household appliances has burned down, and its owner, Marcello Di Carlo, seems to have vanished into thin air. Has he run off with his lover after a holiday in the Canary Islands? Is he fleeing from his creditors, or was he murdered by the mafia for not paying their protection money? At first this seems like a trivial case, but a third abduction--yet again of a girl who works in a bank--and the discovery of a body bring up new questions. Whose body is it? And where has Di Carlo's secret lover gone?"--
Language Note:

Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 February #1
    The New York Times best-selling Commissario Salvo Montalbano series marks 25 years of continuous publication with the release of this twenty-fifth entry (after Death at Sea, 2018), and it is a sterling example of the universal appeal that has led the series to be translated into 32 languages. As always, Camilleri works in plenty of Sicilian color and many mentions of delectable local cuisine, best of which just might be the pastry trays Montalbano uses to persuade pathologist Dr. Pasquano to give his undivided attention to the case at hand. After being hauled in by the Carabinieri (interagency turf battles are a series staple) for alleged brawling on the beach, Montalbano is confronted with an extremely puzzling crime. Female bank employees are being abducted, drugged, and then released unharmed a few hours later. An incident of arson and a missing store owner become oddly intertwined with the kidnappings, which need to be resolved before not only general panic, but also bank panic, sets in. Recommend to readers looking for a sure-bet international mystery. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
