Potter's Field | Andrea Camilleri
4 posts | 5 read | 3 to read
"You either love Andrea Camilleri or you haven't read him yet. Each novel in this wholly addictive, entirely magical series, set in Sicily and starring a detective unlike any other in crime fiction, blasts the brain like a shot of pure oxygen. Aglow with local color, packed with flint-dry wit, as fresh and clean as Mediterranean seafood -- altogether transporting. Long live Camilleri, and long live Montalbano." A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window 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 Vigta, 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's betrayal, the act of remorse, and the money 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.

Book 13 of Inspector Montalbano series. Salvo investigates a body found 3th potters field, chopped into 30 pieces. This has the signature of a Mafia hit. And Mimi, his second in command, has been acting strangely and has the team on edge. Another great mystery!

My instinct has always been to bolt through a series of books in strict order, leaving nothing behind. In contrast, I‘ve only read a couple of these, in a completely haphazard way, and I think I might enjoy them more like this. These are intensely Sicilian in content (the crime, the approach to detection, the food...) and style (it‘s really interesting reading books in translation). I look forward to reading another sometime.
