About Me

Melfort, Saskatchewan, Canada
I am a lawyer in Melfort, Saskatchewan, Canada who enjoys reading, especially mysteries. Since 2000 I have been writing personal book reviews. This blog includes my reviews, information on and interviews with authors and descriptions of mystery bookstores I have visited. I strive to review all Saskatchewan mysteries. Other Canadian mysteries are listed under the Rest of Canada. As a lawyer I am always interested in legal mysteries. I have a separate page for legal mysteries. Occasionally my reviews of legal mysteries comment on the legal reality of the mystery. You can follow the progression of my favourite authors with up to 15 reviews. Each year I select my favourites in "Bill's Best of ----". As well as current reviews I am posting reviews from 2000 to 2011. Below my most recent couple of posts are the posts of Saskatchewan mysteries I have reviewed alphabetically by author. If you only want a sentence or two description of the book and my recommendation when deciding whether to read the book look at the bold portion of the review. If you would like to email me the link to my email is on the profile page.

The Glass Coffin by Gail Bowen

42. - 132.) The Glass Coffin by Gail Bowen - The 8th Joanne Kilborn mystery is set at Christmas time. The featured characters fly in from Toronto for a prairie winter wedding that turns bloody. Well plotted but probably the least connected of the series to Saskatchewan. It was a sharp contrast to Wilson's novel which was a Saskatchewan story. In further contrast to Wilson's novel the writing and dialogue of Bowen always rings true. I hope her next novel does not rely on brittle Toronto residents to provide the theme. Excellent. Hardcover. (Dec. 30/02)
