9780330442244: Patience of the Spider

The latest mystery in Andrea Camilleri?s internationally bestselling Inspector Montalbano series

Winning fans in Europe and America for their dark sophistication and dry humor, Andrea Camilleri?s crime novels are classics of the genre. Set once again in Sicily, The Patience of the Spider pits Inspector Montalbano against his greatest foe yet: the weight of his own years. Still recovering from the gunshot wound he suffered in Rounding the Mark, he must overcome self-imposed seclusion and waxing self-doubt to penetrate a web of hatred and secrets in pursuit of the strangest culprit he?s ever hunted. A mystery unlike any other, this emotionally taut story brings the Montalbano saga to a captivating crossroads.

About the Author:

Stephen Sartarelli lives in upstate New York.

From AudioFile:

Grover Gardner narrates the eighth title in the series featuring Sicilian detective Salvo Montalbano. Gardner's narration of previous books in the series is apparent in the way he brings the grumpy Montalbano to life. His sympathetic narration helps listeners understand Montalbano's inner battles as he seeks to solve a kidnapping case while he's supposed to be recovering from being shot by a child trafficker during his previous case. Gardner's performance ensures that the characters within the story are easily distinguishable, which is particularly helpful given all the Sicilian names and places. Like the best British police procedurals, Camilleri's focuses on the personality of its main character, and Gardner delivers it beautifully. K.J.P. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
