Description

THE SNACK THIEF by Andrea Camilleri (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

“Montalbano, blessedly, is as bitingly humorous as ever.” (Kirkus Reviews)

When an elderly man is stabbed to death in an elevator and a fishing-boat crewman is gunned-down off Sicily’s coast, only Inspector Montalbano, with his keen insight into human nature, suspects the link between the two incidents. His investigation leads to a viper’s nest of corruption and intrigue.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-winning narrator, Grover Gardner. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“Full of memorable characters and witty takes on Italian life…Camilleri’s latest proves why he is such a big hit in Europe….Highly recommended.” (Library Journal )

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, with his keen insight into human nature, suspects the link between the two incidents. His investigation leads to the beautiful Karima, an impoverished housecleaner and occasional 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.
