Publisher's Summary

Margaret Maron, winner of the Edgar, Anthony, Agatha, and Macavity Awards, has reached renowned success with the Deborah Knott Mystery series. Uncommon Clay delves into the intriguing world of the Nordans, a deep-rooted family of talented yet cursed North Carolina potters. Judge Knott is filling in for another judge who suffered a mild stroke. When she decrees that the divorcing Nordan couple split their valuable earthenware collection, the husband winds up dead, in his own kiln! Many people have motives and the clay wheel swirls with suspects. C.J. Critt's narration heightens the suspense in this family's story of long-time grudges, murder, unbearable pain, and loss. This exciting novel is as rich as the red clay pottery of North Carolina.

Great!

The Judge Knot series is well written. the characters are well formed, after reading just one Judge Knot book you feel you know the county and people, after a couple, you would swear they true exist and you have met them in person.

Love it

This is another fine mystery. Maron gives you just enough hints that the reader can figure out the killer at the same time Judge Knott does. I really like the realistic courtroom scenes. Appreciate that it more realistic than Perry Mason or any other tv legal drama. I love mysteries and for the last year Maron has been my favorite.
