I read one Margaret Maron book---out of order in the series----and was immediately hooked. I went to great lengths to find the entire Deborah Knott series and have now read all but one---which is "in the mail". I feel as if I know Deorah's entire family and where and how they live. I happened to drive through "her part" of North Carolina last weekend and found myself looking for book landmarks, etc. as if everything she had written was real. If you like to lose yourself in books, this entire series is great! You will enjoy them more if you read them in order although they are all good.

After a quarter of a century of marriage in which the twosome argued and fought seemingly all the time, but produced incredible pottery, the Nordans are divorcing. Randolph County, North Carolina visiting Judge Deborah Knott must equitably and legally divide the property between James Lucas Nordan and Sandra Kay Hitchcock, but Her Honor realizes that this is an extremely complicated knot to untie.

Before Deborah finishes her distribution, someone murders James. Deborah wonders if his homicide might be tied into his brother¿s suicide two years ago. Unable to remain on the sidelines, Deborah begins to investigate he recent tragedies of the Nordan family.

UNCOMMON CLAY, the latest Judge Knott mystery (see STORM TRACK) is a taut regional thriller that combines down home wit and humor with a tense who-done-it. The story line never slackens for even a paragraph as readers are drawn into the Nordan family like Pooh Bear to honey (that simile is for Ashley Klausner who gracefully let me use it). The charcaters, especially the Judge, leave the reader touching the red clay of North Carolina. As usual marvelous Margaret Maron provides another wonderful tale that will thrill sub-genre fans.

Mostly fluff, with few interesting aspects of the development of pottery, and a smathering of sensationalistic details that are clearly only intended to tantalize the reader and do not weave well into the fabric of the story. This book was part of a history/folklore series that I participated in. No fault of the author, but this book did not belong.
