Description

From the Italian crime legend, Andrea Camilleri, comes The Potter's Field, winner of the CWA International Dagger Award and the thirteenth instalment in the Inspector Montalbano series. While Vigata is wracked by storms, Inspector Montalbano is called to attend the discovery of a dismembered body in a field of clay.

Bearing all the marks of an execution style killing, it seems clear that this is, once again, the work of the notorious local mafia.

But who is the victim? Why was the body divided into thirty pieces? And what is the significance of the Potter's Field?Working to decipher these clues, Montalbano must also confront the strange and difficult behaviour exhibited by his old colleague Mimi, and avoid the distraction of the enchanting Dolores Alfano - who seeks the inspector's help in locating her missing husband.

But like the Potter's Field itself, Montalbano is on treacherous ground and only one thing is certain - nothing is quite as it seems . . . 'Among the most exquisitely crafted pieces of crime writing available today . . . Simply superb' - Sunday TimesThe Potter's Field is followed by The Age of Doubt, the fourteenth in the series.
