“[Montalbano’s] sharp wit and sharper tongue add dimension to the convoluted case with its eccentric cast of suspects. AudioFile Golden Voice Grover Gardner doesn't waste time on Italian accents, instead providing personal touches and quirky behaviors to Camilleri's many honest character portraits. Montalbano loves fine cuisine, and Gardner adds just the right spice to each mouth-watering description. Translator Stephen Sartarelli earns top marks for his impeccable work in the fourth Inspector Montalbano mystery published in the U.S.” —AudioFile
“Camilleri is as crafty and charming a writer as his protagonist is an investigator.” —Washington Post
“In Sicily, where people do things as they please, Inspector Salvo Montalbano is a bona-fide folk hero.” —New York Times Book Review
Montalbano’s gruesome discovery of the body of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the suspects are her aging husband, a famous doctor; a shy admirer, now disappeared; an antiques-dealing lover from Bologna; and the victim’s friend, Anna, whose charms Montalbano cannot help but appreciate. But it is a reclusive violinist who holds the key to the murder.
Montalbano does not disappoint, bringing his compelling mix of humor, cynicism, compassion, and love of good food to solve another riveting mystery.
