The Smell of the Night
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: January 2006
Duration: 5 hours 1 minutes
The sixth mystery in the Inspector Montalbano series, THE SMELL OF THE NIGHT brings the shady shenanigans of late twentieth-century international finance to small-town Sicily. A "financial wizard" entrusted with the savings of nearly half the retirees of Vigata mysteriously disappears with the money and a young man who worked for him. In a rather atypical case for Montalbano, the inspector finds himself initially shut out of the investigation by the ever-hostile commissioner Bonetti-Alderighi and forced to work from the shadows.
