The age of doubt

Montalbano is a night. He digs the darkness of the night. He opens a maze of mirrors. And he wakes himself in the meanders, while he pursues his reflection: the premonitions and the warnings of his good and bad consciousness of him. Blind contact with nightmares forces Montalbano to be in alarm, and to keep an eye on: now actor, now spectator of one's life; Disgentes always, for that alitar him on the night; For that emanation of death, which on the plot of life engraves as an atrociously playful cunning that reverses the false evidence of reality and brings back to back what the dreams turned on. There is one more, in this novel, compared to the other of Montalbano. Dr. Latteri's fanatic greasyness becomes more ashilar; He settles goodness strokes, which unpredictably explode as mines. The thunderous entrance steps and the chicchiaries of Catarella, of the trafelate Fante of the breakers and linguistic chapters, now resonate with more hallucinated wildness. Livia is increasingly distant and irritable. And with her, on her phone, Montalbano is forced to chew a secret that burns her lips. The self-control of the commissioner was cracked. Montalbano lives the "Sweet Error" which was Petrarca. A new laura, "beautiful woman" also, like that of the poet, but in the uniform of Marina's officer, makes him petrarcheggiale: to richy, even in the "envy". If that of Petrarca was "Youth Error", the one of Montalbano is almost, however, of third age. Commissioner and Lieutenant Laura collaborate with the same inquiry which, in an international intrigue, and with competition of secret agents that at Kimberley Process refers to control diamond traffic, convey, around a disrupted corpse and a fake passport, the Man a yacht and a motorboat. Love is a ghost. But that ghost is the truth that commissioner focuses on fire. And he suggests a gamble of action, to the James Bond. The commissioner triumphs, with the action of him. But the Montalban man is increasingly alone. Prostrate, he bends himself: on his own wounds. (Salvatore Silvano Nigro)
