The Sicilian Method (Inspector Montalbano Mystery Series)

We rated this book:


One night while Mimi Augello is visiting a lady friend, her husband arrives, and Mimi has to escape through the window. As he makes his way down to a lower balcony, he decides to exit through another apartment. That’s when he discovers a corpse lying on a bed. He goes straight to Inspector Montalbano to report what he’s found. They decide to do nothing until the death is reported.

When they get a call the next day about a body, both are surprised to find another body, a local play director who moonlights as a money lender. After investigating, they can’t decide if his death is related to the unorthodox methods he uses to audition actors or money lending activities. Montalbano is happy to have the help of a new and beautiful forensic employee, Antonia. He’s fallen head over heels for her but, will they be able to find the time to catch a killer? And what about the other body? Will they investigate?

The late Camilleri was a master at creating sympathetic and exciting characters as well as showcasing his beloved Sicily. Just when you think you know Montalbano, he falls in love with someone other than his long term partner Livia. This was a Montalbano like I hadn’t seen before, vulnerable to the charms of an unpredictable younger woman. But, thankfully, still, a kind, caring, and loyal servant to the people of Vigata.
