What the Critics Say

“Humor…leavens the noirish story line, and the solution to the central puzzle is both psychologically plausible and intellectually satisfying. The crisp prose is a pleasure to read, and a last-minute twist a testament to the author's artistry.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Camilleri is as crafty and charming a writer as his protagonist is an investigator.” (Washington Post)

“Montalbano is a delightful creation.” (USA Today)

    "Italian gumshoe"

    This isn't my favorite series, but it was an okay listen. It is written in an old "gumshoe" style, which is not my preference when I choose a mystery. A little more interesting, however, is that it is Italian. The performance was generally passable, but some accents quite odd: including one character made to sound New York/New Jersey. That was weird and a bit distracting when he had "dialogue". If you like gumshoe, you might like this better than I did. The "mystery" of it was competent.
