Two seemingly unrelated deaths form the central mystery of Rounding the Mark.

Disillusioned and no longer believing in the institution he serves, will he withdraw or delve deeper into his work?

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inspector Montalbano #7 This is the 7th Inspector Montalbano book and just as wonderfully written and plotted out as the previous six in the series. If you've been reading the books in order you'll be well acquainted with Salvo Montalbano by now and his intense behaviour in "Rounding the Mark" won't come as much of a surprise. Jacket notes: "Two seemingly unrelated deaths form the central mystery of Rounding the Mark. They will take Montalbano deep into a secret world of illicit trafficking in human lives, and the investigation will test the limits of his physical, psychological, and moral endurance. Disillusioned and no longer believing in the institution he serves, will he withdraw or delve deeper into his work?" Montalbano continues to be rude, mean, sarcastic, and overly grumpy in this book as in the others but this only endears him to me even more. He's always able to redeem himself with his strong moral and ethical values. I love reading Camilleri's books for these simple reasons: the plot flows smoothly, the characters are strong and real, and the conversation between these characters is real and believable.
