  • Number 8 in the series, but the first Joanne Kilbourn Mystery that I have read I like way the author writes IMO It would make a good TV series as it started out interestingly enough, rushed in the middle, convoluted plot, and wrap it up ending May or may not read another Gail Bowen book.I liked the trade paper back format I read

  • As compulsively readable as the other books in the series, but something about this one felt a bit flat Still devoured it in two days, though.

  • It s always a pleasure to meet up with Canadian sleuth Joanne Kilburn Complex characters combined with a fast moving plot keep the reader guessing until the last page Bodies and clues abound as do Canadian icons such as Tim Hortons, CBC Radio and national TV shows Gail Bowen is one of the few mystery writers who keep getting better.


  • I read this book in 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed the story The descriptions of wintery Saskachewan, at 20 degrees below zero gave me a thrill Ms Bowen has a new book out which I will definitely read.


  • I didn t feel this was the best entry into the series, but it was solid enough that I will be continuing on There was something about this one that just didn t feel quite as genuine as some of the previous entries.


  • Canadian Mystery Writer that I enjoy very much this is the 6th book in the series Widowed teacher solving crimes Very well written and characters are well formed This was the most bizarre book of her series liked it.


  • I still don t really like the heroine of these novels but this story was pretty interesting I found the disfunctional family here sickly interesting Might be my favourite of the series so far.
