Michael Kitchen is simply awesome. Love his voice and his style. Story is full of twists and turns. Very entertaining.

I've listened to this book 5 or 6 times over the past decade, and the intricacies of the plot, the variety of characters, and the descriptions of Sicily and Malta fascinate me each time. Michael Kitchen's reading is superb, his voice creating wildly differing personalities with an achingly intimate understanding of each character. Yes, it is a police detective story, but Dibdin and Kitchen transcend the genre. I highly recommend this audiobook.

This Michael Dibdin masterpiece is beautifully rendered by Michael Kitchen's precise and understated performance. The vicious thuggery of the of the Mafia clans and the interested parties of the Italian state, are interwoven with the Wodehouse world of Zen's inner life and Michael Dibdin's painfully believable picture of; ineptitude, misogyny and corruption that sap the best efforts of the very few good people. Please let the, now sadly terminated, Aurelio Zen canon be completed in spoken word as a matter of urgency. In the meantime many thanks for this most diverting of recordings.

I absolutely loved this recording. Michael Kitchen's reading is perfectly matched to the detached style of the book and the ending had me completely gripped. We need more readings please, three of the books is not enough.
