[Professor] Michelle Peckham reviews Giorgio Faletti's The Killer in My Eyes, tr. Howard Curtis and has some problems with the "science";

Michelle also reviews Conor Fitzgerald's The Fatal Touch the second in the Commissioner Blume series set in Rome;

Stepping briefly away from Italy, Amanda Gillies reviews the paperback release of Sergios Gakas's Ashes tr. Anne-Marie Stanton-Ife set in 2004 Athens, which reduced her to tears (in a good way);

Lynn Harvey reviews Michele Giuttari's The Black Rose of Florence, tr. Howard Curtis the fifth in the Florence-based Chief Superintendent Michele Ferrara series;

Terry Halligan reviews Michael Gregorio's Unholy Awakening the fourth in their Hanno Stiffeniis series set in 19th Century Prussia;

Going north to Sweden, earlier this week I reviewed Silenced by Kristina Ohlsson, tr. Sarah Death the second in the series featuring a specialist Stockholm police team;

Maxine Clarke reviews Lucia Rinaldi's Andrea Camilleri: A Companion to the Mystery Fiction, "a complete accessory to the Inspector Montalbano novels and short stories by Andrea Camilleri"

Omigosh, a book about Camilleri and Montalbano, what a treat. If I ever have the time, I'll read it.

And, yes, food is a character in the Montalbano books, as is Vigata. At every moment, the Sicilian police detective is either reminiscing about a meal, eating or contemplating his next one. It adds so much flavor to these books. Luckily, there are no calories involved in the indulgences described here, not for the reader.

There are few better ways to experience a vicarious vacation than to go to Vigata to visit Montalbano.
