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 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’ betrayal, the act of remorse, and the thirty pieces of silver 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One of the best installments in the entire Inspector Montalbano series.” New York Journal of Books
“Clever...As usual, Montalbano wants to wrap up [the] cases quickly so he can get back to his real work—sleeping, eating, drinking, and dealing with his long-distance girlfriend, Livia.” Publishers Weekly
“Filled with Camilleri’s usual humor and irreverence, this story will delight more than just his fans. Prolific reader (more than 700 titles to his credit) Grover Gardner has narrated every English translation of this mystery series, and he continues to be the perfect voice for the irascible Montalbano. Recommended.” Library Journal (starred audio review)
“Montalbano has never been one for just the facts, ma'am, but his thirteenth recorded case goes appealingly over the top into slapstick and character-driven farce. Especially recommended for series fans and mystery readers who enjoy the journey more than the solution.” Kirkus Reviews
