Synopsis of The Age of Doubt
The day after a storm floods Vigàta, Inspector Montalbano encounters a strange, bedraggled woman who expresses interest in a certain yacht scheduled to dock that afternoon.
Not long after she’s gone, the crew of the yacht reports having found a dinghy in the port, and within it, a disfigured corpse.
Also at anchor is an eighty-five-foot luxury boat with a somewhat shady crew.
Both boats will have to stay in Vigàta until the investigation is over—the unidentified man was poisoned, it seems.
Based on the information—and misinformation—the mysterious woman shared with him, Montalbano begins to think the occupants of the yacht just might know a little more about the man’s death than they’re letting on.

Review of The Age of Doubt
As always, a pleasure to read the Montalbano novels by Camilleri.
This one is, perhaps, a bit sad, but still filled with humor. Catarella keeps being as magnificent as ever and you can see that time has taken a toll on Montalbano, which depresses him a bit.
