Another great story in the Inspector Montalbano series.
on 3 September 2015
I put off buying this, the 17 book in the series due to some mixed reviews, but I live this series of books so much that I eventually succumbed. A couple of the later books in the series have not been quite as good as some of the earlier books and I was worried that the author was getting tired or bored with his creation, but found that Angelica's Smile is very much 'Up There' in terms of qaulity of writing and storyline about a mysterious series of house breakings that seem to be linked and the perpetrator is goading the inspector, challenging him to solve the mystery. Montalbano, for his part is less jaded than in some of his most recent cases, but nonetheless, perplexed: is his judgement clouded by his obvious crush on Angelica, old age or what?
