Publisher's Summary

While swimming along the Sicilian shore, Inspector Montalbano discovers a corpse. His pursuit of the cause of death intersects with the inquiry into a hit-and-run accident that claimed the life of a young boy who may have been victimized by human traffickers.
The buying and selling of immigrant children, for slave labor, sex, and as a source of illegal organ transplants, is part of the evil underside of the opening of Europe's borders. That, combined with frustration with his department's repressive handling of security for the G-8 summit in Genoa and the corruption among his superiors and the politicians behind them, makes setting anything right seem like an exercise in futility.
Montalbano alternates between despair and steely resolve. When he realizes that he may have inadvertently aided the boy's victimizers, his internal turmoil intensifies.
Solve another mystery with Inspector Montalbano.

Curse the Saints

What made the experience of listening to Rounding the Mark the most enjoyable?

Grover Gardner does such a great job as the narrator. The humorous writing of Andrea Camilleri makes for such an enjoyable listen. Each of the characters are well developed and so distinct.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scenes in each of the series is when Montalbano starts a circular conversation that just makes me laugh out loud. The wit of the writing is so entertaining.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this book in one sitting. It isn't as long as the others but I am working my way through listening to one after the other.

Exquisite Plot

Jack

Exceeded expectations. An intricate plot that all came together. Montalbano's vulnerability continues to increase. His supporting cast is becoming more important.
