Never has Inspector Montalbano's character - a unique blend of humor, cynicism, compassion, earthiness and love of good food - been more compelling than in Andrea Camilleri's third Montalbano audiobook, The Snack Thief.
When an elderly man is stabbed to death in an elevator and a crewman on an Italian fishing trawler is machine gunned by a Tunisian patrol boat off Sicily's coast, only Inspector Montalbano suspects a link between the two incidents. His investigation leads to the beautiful Karima, an impoverished housecleaner and sometime prostitute, whose young son steals other schoolchildren's midmorning snacks. But Karima disappears, and the young snack thief's life - as well as Montalbano's - is endangered when the inspector exposes a viper's nest of government corruption and international intrigue.
The Snack Thief is followed by the fourth Inspector Montalbano audiobook, The Voice of the Violin.
