The Wandering Soul Murders

The Wandering Soul Murders
by Gail Bowen

Joanne Kilbourn is enjoying a beautiful May morning that only Saskatchewan can provide. Then the phone rings and the trouble begins. Her distraught daughter, Mieka, calls because she just found the body of her teen-aged cleaning woman in the dumpster behind her store. It appears that Bernice is the latest victim in a series of prostitute killings. Then her son's former girlfriend, Christy Sinclair, reappears in Peter's life. Reluctantly, Joanne takes the obsessive Christy to Echo Lake for Mieka and Greg's engagement party. During the party, Christy dies of a drug overdose. Joanne is shocked to learn that Christy named her as Christy's next of kin. She also feels guilty because she did not like Christy. Joanne learns that both Bernice and Christy had teddy bear tattoos on their buttocks. Joanne and her friend Jill, a TV news director, probe their deaths. The unsavory trail that Joanne discovers leads her to Blue Heron Point in the woods of northern Saskatchewan. This is the third book in a series that is peopled with engaging characters.
