A doomed romance, Mimi undercover as a seducer, an illegal cache of diamonds.....

Montalbano has an encounter w/ a bedraggled woman who is interested in an incoming yacht.... The yacht in question comes into dock hauling a corpse in a dinghy.

Another boat in harbor has odd going ons, which are somehow related to the yacht....

Interesting but very sad, and lacking the subtle sense of humor Montalbano is famous for. ( )

The detective continues to grow in his self-reflection, getting closer to truths painful to admit. While his relationships with other women spur these reflections, the women themselves seem mostly to be plot devices, or platforms for launching these reflections on diminishment. ( )

I know I read this book, and if I browse through it I'll remember what it was about, but otherwise it was not memorable. It wasn't awful, and would be a good 'beach read', but that's about it. As usual, all the older men in this book were sexist and seemed incapable of interacting with any woman without sizing her up for possible sexual adventures. The women have a tendency to overreact, a stereotype I've seen in European soap opera shows, and all the characters some across as flat or unrealistic. ( )

Another enjoyable entry in the Inspector Montalbano series! In this one, I guess he is going through some sort of midlife crisis as he becomes quickly infatuated with a younger woman. I don't really like his long-term girlfriend Livia but I felt a bit sorry for her in this one... ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

One night, Inspector Montalbano dreams of a stormy sea, which he knows represents unease and loss of control. The next day, a boat is found in the port of Vigata, and within it, the body of a disfigured corpse. The waterfront has also drawn in an eighty-five-foot luxury boat passengered by fifty carefree souls and a somewhat shadowy crew. They will have to stay in Vigata until the investigation is over--the man, it seems, was poisoned. However, right now, it is the yacht's owner and sailors Montalbano is focused on.… (more)
