SAY IT AIN'T SO


'We are sorry to inform you that we have been unable to obtain the following item:


Andrea Camilleri (Author), Stephen Sartarelli (Translator) "The Paper Moon (Inspector Montalbano Mysteries)" [Paperback]


We apologise for the length of time it has taken us to reach this conclusion.


Until recently, we had still hoped to obtain this item for you. This item has now been cancelled from your order and we can confirm thatyou have not been charged for it.

Please accept our apologies for any disappointment or inconvenience caused.'


Let down by Amazon don't they know I am the "King of Camilleri" [courtesy of Detectives Beyond Borders] and Euro Crime's Italian expert.

The world seems a darker place this evening and I will return to the web to find an alternative source.

Good heavens, what a nerve! Don't they realise they are writing to Signor Italian Criministo Par Excellento?

But, it seems you won't get it from any of these establishments until 6 June (pub date) -- could this be what is bothering Amazon?

Let's hope for their sake you do not call in your Sicilian friends to sort them out.
