Can the voice of any author get through in a book read by Dick Hill? I had forgotten how appalling a narrator he is for any character other than a sleazy slum bag from New Jersey, or I would have avoided this one from the start. All his women wimp and whine. And how any editor worth his or her salt passed his attempts at British, German, and Middle Eastern accents in this particular book beggars belief. As does the plot and character development in The Increment . . . but that is a different matter.
Absolutely brilliant narration of a classic.
Both the translator and the narrator of this Italian detective story should win awards. A delightful listen with abundant humour and no slight insight into human nature.
