Andy Boychuk is a successful Saskatchewan politician – until one sweltering August afternoon when the party faithful gather at a picnic. All of the key people in Boychuk’s life – family, friends, enemies – are there. Boychuk steps up to the podium to make a speech, takes a sip of water, and drops dead. Joanne Kilbourn, in her début as Canada’s leading amateur sleuth, is soon on the case, delving into Boychuk’s history. What she finds are a Bible college that’s too good to be true, a woman with a horrifying and secret past, and a murderer who’s about to strike again.

From the Back Cover:

“Add Gail Bowen to the growing, long list of Canadians turning out superior mystery stories...Ms. Bowen charms the reader with a compelling heroine, some intriguing side figures and a suitably murky mystery, and combines it all with fine writing and acceptable surprises along the way.”
The Whig-Standard, Kingston

“In Joanne Kilbourn, Gail Bowen has created a narrator who is bright, thoughtful, wryly entertaining, and warm without being sappy...I found this a very hard book to put down.”
–Gary Draper, Books in Canada
