“[I]ntense and involving . . .” –Toronto Star
“A great little family mystery with engaging characters and a solid plot. Definitely worth a weekend.” –Margaret Cannon, Globe and Mail
“As with many of Bowen’s novels, a crime does not happen immediately: she owes her huge following as much to her attention to character and place as it does to her ingenious mysteries. [Bowen is] confident enough to allow the darkness to creep up on the reader . . .” –Calgary Herald
“The undercurrent of sinister sexual exploitations in the film crowd, and for that matter out on the streets of Regina, provides a thrum of suspicion and menace throughout the novel. But A Darkness of the Heart is really about family—families—and their flexible and evolving, chosen and unchosen relationships.” –The Kingston Whig-Standard

While I was initially intrigued that in this book Joanne's birth father was revealed, to her surprise, and hoped this would be central to an interesting plot, I found the plot itself fairly uninteresting and without the intrigue of previous books.
A disappointing read.
