Tra i derubati, Angelica, giovane donna di folgorante bellezza. I needed a little pick-me-up when I began reading Angelica's Smile, and Camilleri had me laughing within the first twenty-five pages. The comedy team of Montalbano and Catarella is pure magic.
But this seventeenth book in the series isn't all slapstick comedy played for laughs. Unfortunately, Montalbano's lover Livia makes an appearance, and since she's the type of woman who lives to play the diva and to fight and argue I always pout when she shows up.
I am thrilled to report that I didn't pout for very long. While I'm immersing myself in the wonderful food and the brilliant characters of Camilleri's series, I'm also learning things-- like why prosecutors in Italy are against tapping telephones. Then there are the ingenious burglaries to be enjoyed, and they weren't resolved in the manner that I thought they would be, so that was icing on the literary cake. It's always a pleasure to spend time with this aging inspector. Readers are guaranteed mouth-watering meals, plenty of laughs, mind-boggling crimes to solve, and Montalbano himself-- the all-too-human man of dreams whose head can be turned by a pretty face.
This character is so real that, if I ever found myself in Sicily, I'd have to resist the temptation to look him up to ask for restaurant recommendations. Long live Camilleri! Long live Montalbano! Angelica's Smile is the 17th in the Salvo Montalbano series from Camilleri, and while as ever a clever, humourous, and entertaining read, it is not quite on a par with some of his previous.
In this latest mystery, as usual based in the fictitious coastal town of Vigata in Sicily, Salvo is involved in trying to solve a string of copycat burglaries of seeming acquaintances who all own two properties. While not enamored at being involved with mere burglaries, he is so because of the reputation of some of those burgled, and any disquiet he has is quickly dispelled when he meets and becomes infatuated with one of those burgled, the beautiful Angelica.
What is it that ties the burglaries together, and why is the perpetrator sending him clues in anonymous messages? Is the reason for the burglaries something other than mere theft? Camilleri's plots are nearly always well thought out and need to be in order to keep this long series fresh, yet I always yearn for more of Livia, Salvo's long-time girlfriend, whose appearances are always all too frustratingly short.
There is the usual midnight stakeout, regular visits to his favourite eateries, trouble interpreting Cateralla, and uncertainty regarding his relationship with Livia. And also as appears usual not everyone may be as they appear.
Maybe therein lies the clue to events. Sometimes Camelleri's books end with a sense of sadness; this one may fall into that bracket, but for what reason I won't reveal.
The reason can be either a too short a story, b the guilt of someone maybe not deserving of it, c slightly ant-climatic ending, or d a rather predictable ending.
I'm going to leave you guessing! An absolutely delightful romp, with Montalbano being led around by his nether parts even more than usual, and the food dazzling. The underlying story is one of revenge, the capers clever, and only one body, if I recall correctly, which makes it even more of a comedy than usual. Montalbano is having a pity party. Offended by actions of disreputable police on the mainland, he wants out and also questions his mental agility for the job. Then a complicated series of robberies and a beautiful woman bring his focus back to the job.
But still we are left wondering what comes next. Here at Walmart. Your email address will never be sold or distributed to a third party for any reason. Due to high volume, we can't respond to individual comments.
