Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Camilleri is as crafty and charming a writer as his protagonist is an investigator.” Washington Post
“Montalbano is a delightful creation.” USA Today
“The witty writing and acerbic protagonist should appeal to fans of Colin Dexter’s Inspector Morse.” Publishers Weekly
“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…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.” AudioFile
“Delivers what fans have come to expect: a perfectly blended mix of comedy and melancholy, and a hero whose joie de vivre is perpetually under siege from an absurd world.” Booklist
“Narrator Grover Gardner…provides his usual excellent reading. Mystery lovers, especially those with an interest in Italian culture, will enjoy this.” SoundCommentary.com
