9780330492997: The Voice of the Violin

Inspector Montalbano, praised as "a delightful creation" (USA Today), has been compared to the legendary detectives of Georges Simenon, Dashiell Hammett, and Raymond Chandler. As the fourth mystery in the internationally bestselling series opens, Montalbano’s gruesome discovery of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the suspects are her aging husband, a famous doctor; a shy admirer, now disappeared; an antiques-dealing lover from Bologna; and the victim’s friend Anna, whose charms Montalbano cannot help but appreciate. But it is a mysterious, reclusive violinist who holds the key to the murder.

About the Author:

Andrea Camilleri is the author of many books, including the Montalbano series, which has been translated into eight languages.
Stephen Sartarelli is a poet and translator.

From AudioFile:

While making an illegal search of a seemingly deserted house, Sicilian Police Inspector Salvo Montalbano stumbles upon the naked body of a woman. He arranges for the body to be found and then proceeds to investigate the crime. Montalbano regularly butts heads with police bureaucracy, and his sharp wit and sharper tongue add dimension to the convoluted case with its eccentric cast of suspects. AUDIOFILE Golden Voice Grover Gardner doesn't waste time on Italian accents, instead providing personal touches and quirky behaviors to Camilleri's many honest character portraits. Montalbano loves fine cuisine, and Gardner adds just the right spice to each mouth-watering description. Translator Stephen Sartarelli earns top marks for his impeccable work in the fourth Inspector Montalbano mystery published in the U.S. S.J.H.
