Another engaging story from Camilleri. This one is better than his first, and not as good as his next. Again, I was distressed that it ended so soon, but that inevitably brought to my mind a wonderful Whoopi Goldberg routine from her early stand-up days.
When a creepy old man tried to woo her into a tumble by promising that old men can last a long time, she paused for a long Whoopi moment.
To paraphrase her question to the audience:
Now why... would I want to read a baaaaaaaaad book... for a LONG TIME?!?
And indeed, I'd rather spend a short time with a book as wonderful as this than a long time with some of the mountainous drivel I've mis-chosen lately.
AUDIO: The same competent and well-fitting narrator, thank goodness.

A good departure from ho-hum mysteries takes you into the life of a police inspector in Sicily picking up clues in a 50 year old homicide case. Other current murders are presented as every-day occurances carried out with Mafia vengance. Hats off to the narrator with the perfect Italian accent for the reading. This one: well worth it.
