Synopsis of The Potter’s Field
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’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.

Review of The Potter’s Field by Andrea Camilleri
It’s a pity that the author is the age he is (I hope I don’t jinx him with this comment).
The plot is good; humor and irony are present throughout the novel, but the best, as always, and from my point of view, are the characters, especially Montalbano and Catarella.
