Item description for Death in Malta by Rosanne Dingli...

An Australian novelist visits Malta, where he stumbles on a mystery. A missing child becomes the subject of his writing, but his investigations are fraught with difficulty. What is he to do with the sealed jars in his cellar? Does one contain a little corpse? His romance with a Maltese woman can either restore or ruin his career, but who is the unexpected female visitor who comes to his rented house outside a dusty remote village? The village parish priest shows veiled antagonism, countered by real friendship struck with an alcoholic doctor. When opening the jars leads to a dramatic climax, the novelist is dealt another blow, and the village is once more hit by a mysterious death. "Life is not a novel, Mr. Worthington, in which everything is resolved by the last twenty pages. There are some things we were never meant to know and never will know," says the parish priest. But there are questions that must be answered, and Worthington determines to find solutions before he leaves Malta. Poignant and moving, punctuated by comical scenes and passionate interludes, Death in Malta is a powerful novel of love and loss, disappointment and dislocation--curiosity and consequences.

Reviews - What do customers think about Death in Malta?

Similarities and differences  Oct 17, 2000
Death in Malta's protagonist is human, vulnerable and believeable. He is homesick, he's suffering from writer's block. He falls in love, and becomes obsessed with a mystery surrounding the disappearance of a little boy from the very house he is living in. All the while, you wonder whether there's a corpse in one of those clay jars he found. All the while, you wonder whether what he starts to write is truth or fiction. This story, although it centres around the Australian writer, is really about the old doctor who becomes his friend - his sharply defined personality makes you look forward to the next time he appears. The essence of "Death in Malta" is really contained in the character of Dr Phineas Micallef. A great read, with a realistic ending.
