The Track of Sand: An Inspector Montalbano Mystery | [Andrea Camilleri, Stephen Sartarelli (translator)]

The Track of Sand: An Inspector Montalbano Mystery

Inspector Salvatore Montalbano wakes from strange dreams to find a gruesomely bludgeoned horse carcass in front of his seaside home. When his men come to investigate, the carcass has disappeared, leaving only a trail in the sand. Then his home is ransacked, and the inspector is certain that the crimes are linked. As he negotiates both the glittering underworld of horseracing and the Mafia’s connection to it, Montalbano is aided by his illiterate housekeeper, Adelina, and a Proustian memory of linguate fritte.

    Story
    "Like watching an hourglass! Occasionally amusing."

    This is the third of the series that I have read and the least engaging thus far. The story is dragged out to indulge Montalbano's sexual appetite in addition to his familiar palette, his bureaucratic intrigues, and comical neuroses about aging, surrounded by passing references to the case at hand. Worse, it was easy to determine the villain and the motive before I was half way through. Montalbano, whose abilities to see beneath the surface are legendary, is incapable of seeing beyond the end of his nose in this book. This episode in the series is much over-rated.

    Grover Gardner was an entertaining narrator, as usual.
