Product Description

Review

"Hugely readable." 
National Post

"A late-night page turner.... A rich and satisfying read." 
— Edmonton Journal

"It's a fascinating plot, and in Bowen's skilled hands, it becomes a page-turner.... Gripping. . . . when Bowen is on - as she definitely is in this latest novel - she takes a back seat to no one. She's on a new high, and she's a provincial treasure." 
—The Star Phoenix (Saskatoon)

"Engrossing." 
— Toronto Star



From the Hardcover edition.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Toni Osborne TOP 100 REVIEWER on Jan. 29 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sam Parker is furious and confronts Kathryn Morrissey about her recent novel which reveals secrets concerning the children of prominent Canadians. Frustrated with her reaction, he shots her, grazing her shoulder and charges are laid. Zack Shreve (Joanne's new love) is hired as his defence counsel. During the trial, everyone condemns Parker for his action but no one blames him for coming to the defense of his only child, Glen, a transsexual. On the day of the verdict, Morrissey is brutally murdered and the fallout quickly becomes a far more personal and urgent matter than Joanne has ever expected.

I enjoy Canadian writers and mysteries set in Canada this one is in Saskatchewan. The characters are well developed and likable. The plot is complex and entirely believable. The story is of a man accused of murdering a journalist who has exploited and betrayed him. It makes us think seriously about the ethics of broadcasting and the individual right to privacy. This novel is about trust and betrayal, deeply affecting.

Several of Gail Bowen's mysteries have been made into TV movies starring Wendy Crewson as Joanne. They are also very entertaining.

As an author, editor and voracious reader, I love to find Canadian writers who are new to me. The other day I stumbled upon Gail Bowen and began reading her ever so literary mystery, The Endless Knot. I couldn't put it down. The characters were well developed and imminently likable, the plot was complex but not overly so, in that the ending was entirely believable, and I thoroughly enjoyed the background.

Also appreciated Bowen's pop culture references to music and I share her politics and world view.

Altogether, this is a wonderful novel about a man who is accused of murdering a journalist who exploits his child's life and that of other adult children in an exposé book. It makes us think seriously about the ethics of broadcasting, which are so critical in this era (as I write this three days after the Virginia Tech massacre, the role of the media is being debated everywhere. How can they balance the public's right to know with the individual's right to privacy? When does reporting stop being informative and begin to sensationalize or worse, play an active role in contributing to a crisis?)

The story is told by Joanne, a widow who has just found love again with a cutthroat lawyer who seems ruthless in the courtroom but has integrity and a soft side. I haven't read the earlier Joanne Kilbourn stories but I just picked up two other pocketbooks on her in the store this afternoon.

I know what I'm doing this weekend!

I should first say that normally I find Canadian authors' 'hype' overblown and am usually disappointed in their efforts. Bowen is definitely an exception worth exploring! Not only were her characters intelligent and likeable but she also threw in a very interesting and plausible plot. I didn't want the novel to end and for me that is the highest praise I can give a book. I'll be looking for more from Gail Bowen in the very near future.

Gail Bowen does it again! Feb. 19 2013
By Ann W. Gael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have loved the Joanne Kilbourne series since I discovered it on a long-ago trip to a bookstore in Calgary. On my return to New York, I sought out others of the series. This book continues to furnish great enjoyment. Joanne's not-so-new husband is terrific, and it's particularly great how they deal with his disability. I like him a lot better than her now-deceased former man friend. And having her family around fills out the story well. I look forward to the next installment and have emailed Gail Bowen asking her to write faster!
