    This is 88-year old Andrea Camilleri’s sixteenth detective novel in English centred on Inspector Salvo Montalbano, now aged 57. On the basis of this book, the author is aging rather better than his character. Once again, the translation is in the capable hands of Stephen Sartarelli. The action opens with two aged reclusive siblings, Gregorio and Caterina Palmisano, shooting at the ‘sinners’ in the street below their extensive Vigàta apartment. They are quickly arrested and taken to a mental hospital. However, when Montalbano and his Sicilian team, Mimi Augello [who, at one stage, leaves his boss flabbergasted], Fazio, Gallo and Gulluzzo, begin to explore the darkened rooms they discover religious artefacts and pictures, grand pianos and a decrepid and much-patched inflated doll. This event is rather welcome since there is very little happening on the crime front and Camilleri creates a rather reflective Montalbano, wondering whether his reaction to searching the room was an indication of his feeling his age. The detective rails against modern language when his mechanic gives him bad news about his car [‘’I’m afraid she’s ready to be junked, Inspector.’ The use of that verb set his nerves on edge. Whenever he heard it, whenever he read it, his balls immediately started to spin. And it wasn’t the only word that had this effect on him. There were others: securitise, contingency, restructuring, as per, precurrent and dozens more. Languages long dead invented wonderful words they handed down to us for eternity. Whereas our modern languages, when they died – which was inevitable, since every tongue on earth was becoming a colony of American English, itself dying a slow death by suicide – what words would they hand down to posterity? Junked? Kickback? Normalcy

    Angelica's Smile is the seventeenth novel in the gripping Inspector Montalbano mysteries by Andrea Camilleri.After sitting in the car on the hill for about ten minutes, Montalbano realized this was a big mistake. Because he didn't think at all about the investigation, the burglars, or Mr. Z. He thought about Angelica . . . What had he done?When members of Vigàta's elite are targeted in a series of perfectly executed burglaries, Inspector Montalbano reluctantly takes the case. It soon becomes clear however that more links these privileged few than simply their lost possessions . . .It isn't long too before Montalbano finds himself taken with one of the victims, the captivatingly beautiful young Angelica. But as the detective's attraction grows - until he can think of little else - a series of strange, anonymous letters claiming responsibility for the thefts begin to arrive . . .

    The Track of Sand is Andrea Camilleri's twelfth outing in the wryly humorous Inspector Montalbano series.Inspector Montalbano rises one morning to find the carcass of a horse on the beach in front of his seaside home. But no sooner do his men arrive, than the body has mysteriously vanished, leaving only a track in the sand. Before long Rachele, a beguiling equestrian champion, turns up at police headquarters to report her horse missing. The horse had been stabled at the grounds of a certain Saverio Lo Duca, one of the richest men in Sicily. Lo Duca has lost one of his own horses too.Montalbano, his curiosity piqued, investigates, but before long things take a more disturbing turn . . .

    Game of Mirrors is the eighteenth exciting instalment in the Inspector Montalbano mysteries by Andrea Camilleri.When Montalbano comes to the aid of his new neighbour, Liliana Lombardo, after the engine of her car is interfered with, the inspector can little imagine where this innocuous event will lead. It soon transpires that the young woman - beautiful, intelligent and rather vague about the whereabouts of her husband - is being targeted by someone with a grudge against her. But is Liliana's growing interest in Montalbano simply a product of the detective's innate charm? Or is she trying to lead him astray - and into trouble?Meanwhile the inspector finds himself drawn into another mystery when a bomb explodes outside an empty warehouse in Vigàta. But who was the bomb intended for? And why was it left in such a peculiar place? As Montalbano and his colleagues investigate the street's residents - some of whom have suspicious mafia links - they begin to receive a barrage of false clues from an anonymous source.

    Andrea Camilleri's sensational Inspector Montalbano continues in the fourteenth instalment, The Age of Doubt.A chance encounter with a strange young woman leads Inspector Montalbano to Vigàta harbour - and into a puzzling new mystery.

It isn't long before Montalbano begins to become suspicious of the Vanna's inhabitants. Who is the yacht's owner, the glamorous and short-tempered Livia Giovannini? How has she accrued her riches? And why does she spend so much time at sea?

His long-distance relationship with Livia is on the rocks, he feels himself getting even older and he's growing tired of the violence in his job.Then the dead body of a young woman is found in an illegal dump, with half her face missing. Her identity at first unknown; a tattoo of a sphinx moth on her left shoulder links her with three other girls bearing the same mark, all recent Russian immigrants to Italy. Victims of an underworld sex trade, these girls have been rescued from the Mafia night-club circuit by a Catholic charity organization. The problem is, the other girls can't help Montalbano with his enquiries. They are all missing.

    Blade of Light (Inspector Montalbano Mysteries) 
    Blade of Light is the nineteenth gripping addition to the phenomenally successful Inspector Montalbano mysteries by Andrea Camilleri.For a brief moment, as Montalbano was looking, a bright blade of light flashed from the loft and shone straight in his eyes. Despite the sunglasses, he instinctively shut his eyes and when he reopened them the light was gone . . .When a gentleman arrives at Montalbano's station to report an armed robbery on his wife that ended with a kiss, the inspector's suspicions are aroused.
    As he delves deeper into the case, Montalbano finds that none of the witnesses' stories are adding up, and he can't help but feel that they're not meant to. When a body turns up showing all the signs of a mafia hit, the inspector knows he must excavate the truth from what he is being led to believe.
