Publisher's Summary

Witty and entertaining, the Montalbano novels by Andrea Camilleri—a master of the Italian detective story—have become favorites of mystery fans everywhere.
In this latest installment, an unidentified corpse is found near Vigàta, a town known for its soil rich with potter’s clay. Meanwhile, a woman reports the disappearance of her husband, a Colombian man with Sicilian origins who turns out to be related to a local mobster.
Then Inspector Montalbano remembers the story from the Bible—Judas’ betrayal, the act of remorse, and the 30 pieces of silver for the potter’s field, where those of unknown or foreign origin are to be buried—and slowly, through myriad betrayals, finds his way to the solution to the crime.
Solve another mystery with Inspector Montalbano.

Do you love or hate Inspector Montalbano?

Either you love Inspector Montalbano, or you are fed up with his travails, which don't change much from one book to the next. I'm somewhere in the middle of this spectrum, so it was with some hesitation that I picked this up, but I was delighted to find it to be one of Camilleri's best mysteries as well as one of most amusing in the series. One must pay close attention to the characters, for the story is full of twists and turns. Yes, Montalbano is growing old, a fact he never allows you to forget, but for me, he is not stale. Camilleri, who will turn 90 this year, is still going strong!

Grover Gardner, as usual, presents an excellent narration.
