I listened to three books before I realized I should have started with this book. This books tells you who Salvo Montalbano is, where he lived when he first started as an inspector and how he got to Vigata. How he found his present house he lives in by the water, his house keeper/cook. How he met Livia his love, how he loves great cuisine. He seeks out the best food even in some of the smallest places. Montalbano savors his food. You have to listen to this book. Short, sweet and gives you great insight to the rest of the Montalbano series by Andrea Camilleri.
A very interesting assortment of short stories, with multiple themes. If you like Montalbano, don't miss it!
This is a great selection of short stories involving the Inspector. These stories fill in details about the characters and are thoroughly entertaining
