Grover Gardner narrates this Sicilian police procedural with ease and familiarity. As Inspector Montalbano and his team juggle everyday policing tasks, they must deal with the additional challenge of providing support for migrants arriving at the port. The situation is compounded when the murder of a seamstress with whom Montalbano has a connection is discovered. Gardner creates a sympathetic character in Montalbano, who is compassionate to the plight of the migrants and committed to solving the murder but isn't above a little mischievous behavior every so often. Gardner characterizes the key players strongly, including the members of Montalbano's quirky team, helping the listener track of who's who. Stephen Sartarelli's translation ensures that the strong Silicilan ambiance is carefully blended with very American expressions and phrases, resulting in an engaging listen.
