LoveReading View on The Patience of the Spider

Andre Camilleri’s series about Inspector Montalbano has been adapted for television in Italy, how brilliant it would be if they could do that for British TV, allowing us to see the beautiful Sicilian scenery for ourselves, the gorgeous food that is described to tempt our taste buds and to bring to life a funny, fascinating and slightly grumpy leading detective. Lets hope he keeps going for a long while yet.

The Patience of the Spider Synopsis

'A brother,' he said.

 

Jesus Christ! Now where’d this brother come from? Whose brother? Montalbano had known from the start that between all the brothers, uncles, in-laws, nephews and nieces, this case was going to drive him crazy.

 

Chief Inspector Montalbano is on enforced sick leave. He is being vigorously looked after by his spirited girlfriend Livia, which unfortunately means his housekeeper – an excellent cook – has retreated in a fit of pique.

 

Then when a local girl goes mysteriously missing, the whole community takes an interest in the case. But why are the kidnappers so sure that the girl’s impoverished father and dying mother will be able to find a fortune? The ever-inquisitive Montalbano steps in, to get to the heart of the matter in his own inimitable style.
