Earphones Award Winner

Mystery & Suspense • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

While making an illegal search of a seemingly deserted house, Sicilian Police Inspector Salvo Montalbano stumbles upon the naked body of a woman. He arranges for the body to be found and then proceeds to investigate the crime. Montalbano regularly butts heads with police bureaucracy, and his 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. S.J.H.
