Publisher's Summary

In this, the most maritime of Montalbano’s investigations, listeners will be struck by the change in the commissioner.

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 Vigàta and within it, the body of a disfigured corpse. The waterfront has also drawn in an 85-foot luxury boat passengered by 50 carefree souls and a somewhat shadowy crew. They will have to stay in Vigàta 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.

Montalbano must navigate the murky waters of his relationship with Livia while trying to find which seafaring suspect is the real murderer.

Critic Reviews

“This series is distinguished by Camilleri’s remarkable feel for tragicomedy, expertly mixing light and dark in the course of producing novels that are both comforting and disturbing.” (Booklist)

Another Wonderful Camilleri Book

I do not give 5 stars in any category except his books and the terrific performance (as always) by Grover Gardner. The humor is unbeatable, and the detective story is whipped cream on the top. I save Camilleri for times when I need a lift, and he never fails. You've got a treat in store, but go back to the first in the series and you'll see what I mean.

Good but has a glich

If you could sum up The Age of Doubt in three words, what would they be?

The familiar characters are at their best. However a side plot of M falling in love is not believable.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The main plot, involving a murder at sea, was as neatly woven as usual.

What about Grover Gardner’s performance did you like?

He is the perfect reader because he expresses all the familiar characters uniquely. Makes it even a better listen than a read.
