A national bestseller in hardcover, the 14th Joanne Kilbourn novel is as rich in human drama as all the series- Jo and Zack's young daughter's precocious artistic talent draws the attention of people who may not be at all what they seem. A treat for readers of Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series as well as Gail Bowen's devoted fans.
GAIL BOWEN's first Joanne Kilbourn mystery, Deadly Appearances (1990), was nominated for the W.H. Smith/Books in Canada Best First Novel Award, and A Colder Kind of Death (1995) won the Arthur Ellis Award for best crime novel; all 13 books in the series have been enthusiastically reviewed. In 2008, Reader's Digest named Bowen Canada's Best Mystery Novelist; in 2009, she received the Derrick Murdoch Award from the Crime Writers of Canada. Bowen has also written plays that have been produced across Canada and on CBC Radio. Now retired from teaching at the First Nations University, Bowen lives in Regina. www.gailbowen.com.
