Publisher's Summary

Never has Inspector Montalbano's character - a unique blend of humor, cynicism, compassion, earthiness and love of good food - been more compelling than in Andrea Camilleri's third Montalbano audiobook, The Snack Thief.

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 suspects a link between the two incidents. His investigation leads to the beautiful Karima, an impoverished housecleaner and sometime 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.

The Snack Thief is followed by the fourth Inspector Montalbano audiobook, The Voice of the Violin.

As good, if not better than the previous two

I am listening to these in order and also have not seen any of the TV shows. I bought the first one (The Shape of Water) by accident because it had the same title as a film that won some Oscars. It was a very happy accident. This third book in the series has, I think, more humour than the previous two abd the plotting and the telling of the tale is just as good. I’m really enjoying this series and will keep going until I come across one I don’t like. After reading the first three, that does not seem likely to happen for a while. Highly recommended.
