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 G8 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.--Container

This is the first book I've read of the inspector Montalbano series and I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery itself, but especially the unique character himself. I laughed out loud several times at the endeavors of this crafty, brilliant Italian inspector determined to dine on exquisite food and solve 2 murders, while combating with his middle-age-plus, that has caught up with him. I will look for more of these books. Having this as as an audio book added to the pleasure because of the pronunciation of the Italian names of people, towns, food with the perfect Italian accent of English. The narrator was supurb.

I enjoy the humor and humanity of Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano mysteries. I laughed out loud a couple times. It's also a nicely crafted mystery and different from the type of police stories written in the US. Also, I like his attention to food - not often found in US mysteries.
