9780143120131: The Potter's Field

Now a major BBC4 television series.

WINNER OF THE CWA INTERNATIONAL DAGGER AWARD 2012

From the italian crime legend, Andrea Camilleri, comes The Potter's Field, a dark mystery featuring the inimitable Inspector Montalbano.

While Vigàta 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 30 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 . . .

As seen on TV: now a major BBC4 television series.

WINNER OF THE CWA INTERNATIONAL DAGGER AWARD 2012

While Vigàta 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 30 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 . . .

Review:

`There are witty asides - someone was "a known ne'er-do-well so it was only logical that he should turn to politics" - but the Montalbano books are attractive because of their amusing characters and the person of inspector himself. It is impossible not enjoy the way, with tears of happiness in his eyes, he devours food, from anchovies cooked in lemon juice and dressed in olive oil to giant cannoli.'
--Times Literary Supplement

'Montalbano is a fictional detective like no other. He lives in a beautiful seaside house, swims in the sea every day and has a taste for good rustic Sicilian food ... I drooled over no less than seven descriptions of meals at Enzo s Trattoria or cooked by housekeeper Adeline and this is about par for the course ... I only start a Camilleri if I have an afternoon off. Just can t put it down.' --The Bay Magazine (Swansea)
