Grover Gardner narrates the eighth title in the series featuring Sicilian detective Salvo Montalbano. Gardner’s narration of previous books in the series is apparent in the way he brings the grumpy Montalbano to life. His sympathetic narration helps listeners understand Montalbano's inner battles as he seeks to solve a kidnapping case while he’s supposed to be recovering from being shot by a child trafficker during his previous case. Gardner's performance ensures that the characters within the story are easily distinguishable, which is particularly helpful given all the Sicilian names and places. Like the best British police procedurals, Camilleri’s focuses on the personality of its main character, and Gardner delivers it beautifully.
