A Mysterious Review of 12 Rose Street by Gail Bowen. A Joanne Kilbourn Mystery.

Review summary: The primary appeal of this well-structured mystery is the central character. She's a loving spouse and mother and very perceptive of what goes on around her, solving crimes more by thoughtful consideration and aggressive action. Overall, a solid entry in this series, and one that is recommended. (Click here for text of full review.)

Publisher synopsis: Joanne's husband Zack is the leading progressive candidate in a neck-and-neck race, with the existing mayor, for Regina's top job. The tough campaigning is well underway when a disturbing threat disrupts the celebration for the opening of the Racette-Hunter Centre — a project Zack has been spearheading, intended to benefit the impoverished community of North Central Regina. Joanne soon realizes that sinister interests are working behind the scenes of the election, and another savage act makes clear that someone will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo.

The Shreve campaign perseveres, but when Zack's opponents share some shocking information about the past, the revelation sends Joanne reeling. As tensions around the election build, Joanne tries to hold herself together, keep her family intact, and get to the bottom of why a series of violent incidents, seemingly related to the mayoral race, all lead back to a mysterious property in North Central, 12 Rose Street.
