Gail Bowen is best known for her series of Mystery novels featuring Joanne Kilbourn. It’s been a couple of years since a new Kilbourn novel has been published. In the meantime Love You to Death has appeared with which to amuse us. It is a quick read and is not connected to the Kilbourn stories.
From the jacket: “Charlie D is the host of a successful late-night radio call-in show that offers supportive advice to troubled listeners. Love You to Death takes place during one installment of “The World According to Charlie D”– two hours during which Charlie must discover who is killing some of the most vulnerable members of his audience.”
Bowen has been a commentator on CBC radio in Regina so the elements of radio in the story ring particularly true.
I note from her web site that a new Joanne Kilbourn novel has been released. Chapters here I come.
