Publisher's Summary

Inspector Montalbano is awake at dawn, sitting on his porch, when his attention is caught by a seagull that falls from the sky, performing a strange dance, before lying down to die. Montalbano is perplexed by what he has witnessed and the scene hangs over him like an omen.
About to depart for a holiday with his girlfriend Livia, Montalbano makes a quick trip to the police station to tie up loose ends. But when his dear colleague Fazio is discovered missing, Montalbano instead launches a desperate search for his lost friend....

Really good read and very well read.

If you could sum up The Dance of the Seagull in three words, what would they be?

Satisfying murder mystery


What other book might you compare The Dance of the Seagull to and why?

I wouldn't, its in a league of its own.


Have you listened to any of Daniel Philpott’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I plan to.


Any additional comments?

Apart from the murder bit, its actually very humerous and this comes out in the reading. I wish there were more of his books in Audible rather than just this one.

Thanks to Oakhill Publishing and Daniel Philpott

I may prefer Sean Barrett as the narrator, as he does have a real skill with European stories, however having read and enjoyed so many of Camilleri novels my ear still hears the humour. And Daniel Philpott does a fair iob.

An inspector of police based in Sicily must have a sense of humour. Our aging Inspector is growing weary of the horrors he encounters and still needs to manoeuver around and through the endemic political corruption to achieve a just result. True to form when one of his men goes missing his plans for a few days and nights with Livia are forgotten.

A good story well read.

I do hope Oakhill continue to publish more Camilleri
