"When her daughter Mieka f inds the body of a young woman in a dumpster behind her catering shop, murder has struck too close to home for Joanne Kilbourn. The police quickly dubthe victim another "Little Flower" homicide - the latest in a series of pr ostitutes brutally killed, maimed, and dumped in the trash. Busy with her newly adopted daughter, Taylor, and with Mieka's upcoming wedding, as well as with her job as a university teacher, Joanne has more than enough on her hands. Yet she can't get the unfortunate woman out of her mind. Then her son Peter's eccentric and troubled girlfriend drowns, an apparent suicide, and Joanne is convinced there's more here than meets the eye. She learns the two victims are linked by a teddy bear tattoo and by their hazy backgrounds, as her search for the truth takes her from the dark and hopeless rooms that house street kids to the glowing homes of her city's most prominent citizens. These two worlds could not be more different, and when Joanne begins to see connections between them, her investigation takes a deadly turn thatthreatens everything she values, including the lives of her children. Comb ining vivid and likable characters with a powerful mystery plot, The Wandering Soul Murders marks the welcome return of Joanne Kilbourn - and of Gail Bowen, one of our most exciting new suspense novelists."

BOWEN, Gail. The Last Good Day : A Joanne Kilbourn Mystery. (Toronto, Ontario) : McClelland & Stewart, (2004). First Printing. Pp. (4),1-235,(1). 8vo, pale blue cloth with black lettering to spine.

Gail Dianne Bowen, née Bartholomew (b. September 22, 1942, Toronto).

"A languid summer night at Lawyers' Bay is shattered by the noise of a car racing to the end of a dock and plunging into the deep, murky water of a northern lake. Help is there in minutes, but it comes too late for Chris Altieri, the young lawyer alone inside the car.

So begins Gail Bowen's thrilling new mystery, one that takes readers into the dangerously entangled affairs of a prestigious law firm,and returns Joanne to the heartbreak of an old love affair -- and to the promising start of another.

Clearly, Altieri intended to die; this death wasno accident. Just hours earlier, he'd admitted to Joanne Kilbourn that he'd done something unforgivable. At the time, the confession seemed to have eased his mind, but now he is dead. What happened in the interim, Joanne wonders.

Joanne and two of her children are staying at a cottage in the same gated enclave as Chris Altieri and his partners from Falconer Shreve. All the lawyers have summer homes on the same bay, and all are now in shock over Chris's death. Or are they? Joanne is puzzled by how swiftly the lawyers close ranks, and that's not all that strikes her as odd. Why is her former lover, Inspector Alex Kequahtooway, involved in the police investigation of asuicide out at the lake?

When Joanne learns that a young female lawyer abr uptly left Falconer Shreve months earlier and hasn't been seen since, her instincts tell her that something is terribly wrong. Then the cottage she isstaying in is broken into, and for her and her children's safety, Joanne realizes that she must keep quiet, very quiet, about her own inquiries. Someone at Lawyers' Bay is determined to stop her from finding out the truth." - from the dustjacket.

Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 18.00
