Rounding the Mark (An Inspector Montalbano Mystery)(Library Edition) (Inspector Montalbano Mysteries)

Andrea Camilleri Author

Image Not Available

Andrea Camilleri's international bestselling mystery series features the earthy and urbane Sicilian detective Inspector Montalbano who casts his spell on more and more fans with each new mystery

In Rounding the Mark, Inspector Montalbano discovers a corpse while swimming along the Sicilian shore. His pursuit of the cause of death intersects with the inquiry into a hit-and-run accident that claimed the life of a young boy who may have been victimized by human traffickers. The buying and selling of immigrant children, for slave labor, sex, and as a source of illegal organ transplants, is part of the evil underside of the opening of Europe's borders. That, combined with frustration with his department's repressive handling of security for the G8 summit in Genoa and the corruption among his superiors and the politicians behind them, makes setting anything right seem like an exercise in futility. Montalbano alternates between despair and steely resolve. When he realizes that he may have inadvertently aided the boy's victimizers, his internal turmoil intensifies.

STEPHEN SARTARELLI is a poet and translator.

From AudioFile:

Having narrated several of the Inspector Montalbano mysteries, Grover Gardner is thoroughly comfortable in the persona of the feisty middle-aged Sicilian detective. Here Montalbano considers retiring, goes for a relaxing swim, and comes face-to-face with a corpse. He's also dealing with possible child trafficking in his jurisdiction. Though his Italian is impeccable, Gardner elects to define the characters through their personalities rather than give them Sicilian accents. He's particularly adept at bringing out Montalbano's humorous side as well as his frustration with the pervasive corruption he sees. Add a strong-willed mistress and an office full of independent fellow police, and you have a fast-moving and affecting audio story. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
