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. The crew of a mysterious yacht – the Vanna – due to dock in the area have discovered a corpse floating in the water, the dead man's face badly disfigured. It isn't long before Montalbano begins to become suspicious of the Vanna's inhabitants.
Andrea Camilleri has a rare comic genius. I laughed my way through The Age of Doubt. But it's also a poignant love story, like nothing I've encountered before in the Montalbano novels. Camilleri is brilliant - the fun he is having as he gallops through the pages, visiting havoc and calamity on Montalbano's life, is evident - and full marks to Stephen Sartarelli for a translation that somehow manages to keep those impressions intact.
