    Italian police detective Aurelio Zen is posted to remote Calabria, at the toe of the Italian boot, on a routine assignment. But what he encounters there is anything but routine. Beneath the surface of a tight-knit community, violent forces are at work. Zen is determined to find a way to penetrate the code of silence and uncover the truth behind a brutal murder. His mission is complicated by another secret that has drawn strangers from the other side of the world - a hunt for buried treasure.

    Bernard J. Baars says: "Good writer, good mystery, good narrator."

    Overall

    I wonder if the other reviewers listened to a different audiobook. This one is read by Michael T Barnes, who is British, not American, and who sounds perfectly straight in his interpretation. No added curlicues, at least not one a listener can detect. (Good narrators have lots of subtle tricks). But nothing that stands out like a sore thumb to me. Dibdin is fierce, as usual, and his Italian plots, scenes and characters are the same. The narrator doesn't get in the way, but tells it like it is. Dibdin wrote British English, so the accent is perfect.

    My advice: Listen to the preview!
