[Translated by Stephen Sartarelli]

[Read by Grover Gardner]

A young Don Juan is found murdered in front of his apartment building early one morning, and an elderly couple is reported missing after an excursion to the ancient site of Tindari - two seemingly unrelated cases for Inspector Montalbano to solve amid the daily complications of life at Vigata police headquarters. But when Montalbano discovers that the couple and the murdered young man lived in the same building, his investigation stumbles onto Sicily's brutal ''New Mafia,'' which leads him down a path more evil and far-reaching than any he ha been on before.

From AudioFile:

Italian author Andrea Camilleri manages to leaven a dark mystery involving gruesome crimes with a light touch afforded by humorous situations and an engaging cast, featuring cynical but lovable Inspector Montalbano. This is not narrator Grover Gardner's first Sicilian Inspector Montalbano mystery, and that familiarity with the author's style and the characters' personalities is especially evident in his comfortable and believable presentation of the irascible middle-aged detective. Gardner catches both Montalbano's quiet musings as he examines his life as well as his crude outbursts when he's under pressure. In successfully meeting the challenges of a translation with a multidimensional cast, multiple plot lines, and a generous sprinkling of earthy language, Grover Gardner demonstrates why he's an AUDIOFILE Golden Voice.
