I read this book on a recent vacation in Malta. I like mysteries set in places that I know, and that liking was satisfied. "Death in Malta" has interesting characters, an intriguing plot, and a reasonable amount of suspense.

However, I think the book has one serious flaw. Chekhov wrote that if a rifle on the wall is mentioned in Act 1, it should have been fired by Act 3. "Death in Malta" has so much scene-setting detail that is never used, it's as if a whole armory of rifles sat unfired forever. It's too bad that the book didn't have some more stringent editing.

Death in Malta is a story that keeps you wanting to read on to find out what the secret is. It is a story about an author who visits Malta from Australia to try to get some peace so that he can write a new book. He finds himself renting a farmhouse in a small village and appears accepted into that little community - he is a novelty - and he begins to love the life there. The farmhouse has an historical mystery attached to it, and he begins writing a book intending to keep the village location and names anonymous, whilst trying to uncover some historical facts, and colouring them in his writing with cultural detail. He meets a Maltese girl, and an older man, both these characters feature highly in the story, and are intricately involved in the discovery of the mystery, the answer to which does not appear until the very end, and as far as the writer is concerned it will remain a mystery, I think. It is a moving and emotional read, depicting well the Maltese people, the ways in which they differ from others, and their world. I particularly enjoy it because I live in Malta myself.

AUTHOR ROSANNE DINGLI is a Master Story Teller. I was engrossed with her writing style in "ACCORDING TO LUKE".

In "DEATH IN MALTA", she exceeded my expectations in her wonderful style of creating characters you come to know and feel akin to. GREGORY WORTHINGTON is a successful novelist who has been beset with a multitude of problems. His marriage is on the rocks, has been for seven years. It has been two years since his last novel success. He has not been able to concentrate on his writing. His wife had left Perth, Australia taking their daughter Emma, back to her hometown of Melbourne. His Publisher seems to have lost confidence in him, even taunting him. He decides what he really needs is a change, a big change. He leaves Perth and seeks solitude in Malta, seven islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Malta's history goes back at least 5,200 B.C.. Of the seven islands, only Malta, Gozo and Comino are inhabited. It had been Maggie's suggestion, her Mum's people are from Malta, she would say. It is a bright tourist destination offering everything one could desire. George is intent on finding a place where he can overcome his 'Writer's block' and at the same time sort out his feelings and decide on a course to resolve his marital problems. He settles in a small town just outside Valletta, the Capital city of Malta. He rents a small farmhouse, which had been vacant for some years. Gregory soon meets a retired doctor, Dr. Phineas Micallef who gives him the background on his rented farmhouse, and thus the inspiration for his new novel, a novel of deep suspense and an unsolved mystery of a small boy who had vanished some twenty years before. Dr. Phineas Micallef befriends Gregory and the two become close. Dr. Micallef introduces him to Patricia, a young woman of striking beauty and Gregory finds feelings he had long surpressed.

This novel shines bright with its colorful description of Malta; its people, customs, food and laid-back style of living life. Gregory Worthington,
Dr. Phineas Micallef, Patricia, Father Dimech, even the barkeepers, news agent, the Constable are so carefully described, you can picture them in your mind. As I read this carefully plotted novel, I could not help but visualize DEATH IN MALTA on the 'Big Screen'; with George Clooney as Gregory Worthington, Donald Sutherland as Dr. Phineas Dimech, Dimi Moore as Patricia. If any Hollywood Producers are reading this, a word of caution, DEATH IN MALTA, MUST be filmed on Location to completely capture the beauty of the setting, it's people and the accuracy of ROSANNE DINGLI's writing. You can bank on an Academy Award with a film version of ROSANNE DINGLI's novel . . . but to be sure, let her write the Screenplay.

I could not put this book down and it is one I will read again, and probably again. FIVE STARS!

Death in Malta is entertainment plus, a character driven, focused story that soaks into the psychic drawing the reader into a multi-layered search for purpose that exists within the characters' perception rather than the unravelling mystery.

Rosanne Dingli is a pleasant, polished writer with a wonderful sense for timing and expression. She deserves to be read widely and rewarded richly for her highly original, creative writing style.

The story told is simple. A guy goes off seeking a location to discover past creativity and finds a trace of buried skeletons to focus his inspiration. However we soon discover, from his thinking, the real search for skeletons is in the protagonists past and mindset, not the garden.

I loved this story. It's a feast of intellectual layered love or hate, encouragement or distraction, kindness or cruelty plus attention or neglect. Nothing graphic, just beautifully written prose, that twists within the reader's perception, as the story bubbles along.

A big five stars from me, with a promise to read more of this author.

I bought this novel after a week-long visit to Malta in spring 2014, and I came home hungry for more information. This creative interpretation of the contemporary culture by the author (whom I do not know, but wish I did) seemed plausible if only based on my extremely-limited engagement. Still, the history of the Maltese archipelago is deep, with ruins that predate the Egyptian Pyramids and Stonehenge, and after visiting some of the archealogical sites with vestiges of the Unesco-protected ruins and ancient towns, this novel was a special treat that I couldn't put down. Thank you, Roseanne Dingli, for a very imaginative novel that I'm sure will inspire more interest in Malta and its extraordinary history.
