    As others have stated, the details regarding the production and design of pottery were the most engaging feature of this somewhat dated novel which apparently won the CWA in the early 60s. Having said that, it is easy to envisage this as a BBC drama, perhaps for Christmas or a Sunday evening. Not 'cosy' as in the traditional Christie vein and with attempts to psychologically analyse character motivation, this doesn't quite get there.

    Someone is stealing designs from Shentalls' potteries. Nicholson, a studious private investigator, is hired and told that designer Corinna is the most likely suspect. But he finds himself falling in love with her. When the two discover a body, the police come into the story, although Nicholson doesn't know if the murder has anything to do with the thefts.

    “O Cadáver de Argila” foi mais um daqueles livros que comecei a ler sem grandes espectativas para além de umas horitas de entretenimento. Não fiquei decepcionado. Não pensem que se trata de uma obra-prima dentro do género, mas entre homicídio, espionagem industrial, as vivências de uma pequena comunidade enraizada em torno da fábrica de loiça da empresa Shentall e os habituais dramas da existência humana e das condicionantes da vida em sociedade, a narrativa não desilude.

    I was not overly impressed with this book. I knew from the Title who had committed the crime. The location/industry workings of a pottery was very interesting, however, the crime was easily solved and I finished the book just to see if there were any surprisesne to me.

    This mystery won a Crime Writers Association award, which is what led me to it. The best feature was the detail about the manufacture of pottery in England, otherwise it seemed like fairly standard fare. Good, but not great.

    7th CWA winner. a proper who Dunn it good puzzle well written great females and still feels modern.
