Editorial Reviews


“[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

Sleuth: Gail Bowen on Writing Mysteries has been met with enthusiasm by critics and readers. In 2018, Bowen was recognized with the Crime Writers of Canada Grand Master Award and invested with the Saskatchewan Order of Merit, the province's highest honour.
