Love these books,
This review is from: Angelica's Smile (The Inspector Montalbano Mysteries Book 17) (Kindle Edition)
If you are a lover of these books then you do not need me to urge you to get hold of this one, you will already have it on your radar or may have already read it. I am totally in love with the inhabitants of the police station at Vigata and love Montalbano, with all his failings and yet knowledge of himself. This latest concerns a series of burglaries for which there seems no reason and it takes Salvo sometime to realise they are a blind, a cover up for something more personal. He has been distracted by the arrival of the beautiful Angelica with whom he is in thrall though he knows it is wrong and he is a fool.
Though these books are detective stories, the real interest for all of us who adore these books is the characters, Salvo, Augello, Fazio and the wonderful Catarella. I am so fond of them all that the story almost seems of secondary importance. At times I have felt that the author feels this way too but then I will come across a complicated or fiendish plot twist and realise that I am mistaken. However, I have to agree with other comments here and say that this is not one of his very best, but I adore these books so much, I really don't care.
