(6),1-325,(5). 8vo, black paper-covered boards with metallic blue lettering to spine. Gail Dianne Bowen, née Bartholomew (b. September 22, 1942, Toronto). "It's a perfectMay day in Regina, and the forsythia in Joanne Kilbourn's garden is in daz zling bloom. Friends and neighbours have gathered there to celebrate the fiftieth birthday of Joanne's new husband, Zack Shreve, among them Ginny Monaghan, the Conservative MP for their riding, whose presence causes quite a stir. A general election is just weeks away, and she is here to charm everyone into ignoring rumours about her recent sexual escapades. Ginny knows herpolitical future is in the balance, and she needs all the help she can get . By the end of the party, the sadness Zack's been feeling ever since his friend Ned Osler took his own life a few weeks earlier has lifted. But then his cellphone rings, and it's not someone calling to wish him happy birthday. It's the police with the news that a local call girl has been found murdered, a call girl with an impressive client list. Two names on it stand out: Ned Osler and Zack Shreve. Shaken by Zack's revelation that before he mether he regularly saw this woman, Joanne throws herself into her work -- a project on women and politics that Monaghan has agreed to co-operate with. But she's haunted by the prostitute's death and decides to find out why thedead woman had started to threaten her clients with blackmail, an investig ation that risks not just her marriage but her life. In 'The Brutal Heart',Bowen expertly mixes the ingredients of marriage, family, politics -- and murder -- into a constantly surprising and compulsively readable story. As Zack tells Joanne, it's the loose ends of our lives that hang us." - from the dustjacket. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 18.00

30 BOWEN, Gail. Colder Kind of Death : A Joanne Kilbourn Mystery. First Edition in dustjacket.
McClelland and Stewart, Toronto, 1994, ISBN:0771014821 
BOWEN, Gail. A Colder Kind of Death : A Joanne Kilbourn Mystery. (Toronto):McClelland & Stewart, (1994). First Printing. Pp. (6), 1-233, (1). 8vo, bl ue cloth with copper lettering to spine. "When a prisoner is shot to death in the exercise yard of a Saskatchewan penitentiary, Joanne Kilbourn finds herself haunted by a part of her past she wished had never happened. The dead prisoner is Kevin Tarpley, the man who six years earlier had brutally killed her politician husband, Ian, in a seemingly senseless act alongside the TransCanada Highway. The haunting takes on a more menacing cast several days later when Tarpley's sinister wife, Maureen, is discovered dead in a snow-swept Regina parking lot. A brightly coloured scarf is found wound tightly around her neck, a scarf that belongs to none other than Joanne Kilbourn. Soon this single mother, author, university professor, and TV-show panelist is deemed the "number one" suspect in Maureen Tarpley's demise. Joanne knows there has to be a connection between these two murders. But what is it? A cryptic letter sent to Joanne by Kevin Tarpley just days before his death intimates that Ian Kilbourn's killing may not have been as senseless as first assumed. In fact, there are hints that some of Ian's political colleagues may have been involved. But how deeply and in what way? Then there's the faded photograph of a pretty young woman and her baby that Joanne finds tucked in the wallet of her dead husband. Does it offer any clue to Ian's murder, or to the deaths of the Tarpleys? Warily, Joanne Kilbourn is forced to follow a tangled trail deep into a heartbreaking past she never knew existed. A Colder Kind of Death is the fourth novel featuring Gail Bowen's "reluctant sleuth," Joanne Kilbourn. With its deft mix of wry humour and mayhem, closely observed family scenes and gripping suspense, warm characterization and betrayal, it confirms Gail Bowen's stature as one of the greats of mystery fiction.

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

"Joanne Kilbourn and her husband, lawyer Zack Shreve, are proud parents of a budding art star. Everyone agrees that Taylor -- who hasn't yet turned fifteen -- is a gifted painter.

But the Shreves' pride is laced with concern: two of Taylor's works are hot items in a fundraising auction for the Racette-Hunter Centre, a multi-usefacility being build to serve North Central Regina's diverse community. Joanne and Zack have seen one of the paintings, but Taylor has carefully guarded the other, a portrait of a young male artist's model. When BlueBoy 21 is finally revealed, it sparks a new kind of relationship bewteen Taylor and her model, Julian Zentner, and becomes the centre of a series of troubling incidents, including theft, blackmail, and a shocking act of violence that threatens to ruin the lives of people close to the Kilbourn-Shreve family.

As Joanne and Zack work to keep everyone safe while searching out the truth behind more than one crime, Joanne grows increasingly uneasy about Julian's influence on Taylor. The more Joanne learns about him, the more certain she is that nobody knows the real Julian, and that there is something sinister in his plans for Taylor that may have irreparable consequences for an adolescent girl. When Taylor, always open-hearted and close to her parents, begins to shut them out, Joanne and Zack's darkest fears seem about to be realized." - from the dustjacket.

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.

Pp (10),11-215,(1), frontispiece + 12 leaves ofplates Jacket design by Rowland Trevor. Printed by the Hugh Heaton Printin g House, Limited. Hugh Ross Cameron Boyd (b. 24 Jul 1900 in Ashgrove, Inverness, Scotland - d. 14 Dec 1964 in Edmonton, Alberta). Peel 6157. Not in Watters. "• The author presents in this book an up-to-date and stimulating account of the long and well-sustained farmer struggle for the most satisfactory co-operative method of marketing our wheat and other farm produce. Thiis is coupled with the story of securing appropriate legislation and amendments, designed to protect the producer from the abuses and practices more orless inherent in the warehousing, transporting and handling of grain. • Th e principle of co-operation is amongst the most important of the great forces which are striving for the shaping of our civilization to-day. As a principle it is opposed to the idea ot the "survival of the fittest." Even whenthe system which glorified competition was in its heydey, many men and wom en turned in self-protection to another way of living, and in the mid-nineteenth century laid the foundations of a social and economic order m which co-operation was to be dominant. Everybody who is interested in this aspect of the ever-widening co-operative movement, will find "New Breaking" stimulating reading. • The story of the organised rural activities dating back tosmall beginnings at the turn of the century, are here set forth in consecu tive order, and in a manner designed to be fair and just to all parties concerned. Mr. Boyd has written an interesting, informative and readable book.• An appreciative Foreword is contributed by the Hon. W. R. Motherwell. " - from the dj.

First Edition. Pp (8),ix-x, 1-177,(3). Double column. Square 8vo, tan cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Between 1896 and 1914, the Canadian government carried out a vigorous programme in central Europe, Britain, and the United States to persuade people to immigrate to the Canadian west, "The Last Best West." Hundreds of thousands of prospective settlers from diverse and distinctive ethnic backgrounds responded, leading to an extraordinary mass migration which changed the face of Canada. The great campaign to populate the west is presented here by Jean Bruce, in a compelling and moving selection of more than 190 photographs of the period, together with short related texts. Her superb pictorial history gives a fine sense of scope and perspective to this vital period in the growth of Canada. We see all the paraphernalia of the government advertising campaign, the journey from the settlers' homelands, the first prairie homesteads, the development of western cities and industries and, above all, the people whose lives transformed - and were transformed by - the Canadian west." - the front dj flap. Chapters: 1. Advertising Canada; 2. To the Promised Land; 3. Beginnings; 4. Church and School; 5. Labour Force; 6. FromSettlement to City; 7. New Generation. Very good in dustjacket. 20.00
