The translation is nearly perfect, clear testimony to Stephen Sartarelli's incomparable ability to transfer ordinary and even crude Sicilian Italian into ordinary and even crude American English. Did Sartarelli grow up on the streets of Jersey City? One more thing. True to the genre, this story is unrelievedly populated by over-sexed heterosexuals, who revel in fantasy and actual straight sex. I find this a little boring. Are there no just-as-interesting gay people in Sicily?

An Inspector Montalbano Mystery. By: Andrea Camilleri, Stephen Sartarelli (translator).
An Inspector Montalbano Mystery. Narrated by: Grover Gardner. Series: Inspector Montalbano, Book 10. Length: 5 hrs and 42 mins. Categories: Mysteries & Thrillers, Modern Detective. These Inspector Montalbano mysteries are what I call travel quality; short enough to finish on a long ride or while waiting in an airport; engaging characters with a story that does not require intense concentration. It was sometimes LOL funny; I imagine it is even more entertaining in Italian. My biggest disappointment was with the ending.
