VOICE OF THE VIOLIN by Andrea Camilleri (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Winner of AudioFile’s prestigious Audie® Award!
Montalbano’s gruesome discovery of the body of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the suspects are her aging husband, an antiques-dealing lover, and the victim’s friend Anna. But it is a reclusive violinist who holds the key to the murder.
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.
“Golden Voice Grover Gardner doesn’t waste time on Italian accents, instead providing personal touches and quirky behaviors to Camilleri’s many honest character portraits.” (AudioFile)

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy thrilling crime novels, or who are fans of Andrea Camilleri’s “Inspector Montalbano” series.
Montalbano’s gruesome discovery of the body of a lovely, naked young woman suffocated in her bed immediately sets him on a search for her killer. Among the suspects are her aging husband, a famous doctor; a shy admirer, now disappeared; an antiques-dealing lover from Bologna; and the victim’s friend Anna, whose charms Montalbano cannot help but appreciate. But it is a reclusive violinist who holds the key to the murder.
Montalbano does not disappoint, bringing his compelling mix of humor, cynicism, compassion, and love of good food to solve another riveting mystery.
