520    Arthur Ellis Award-winning author and the "queen of 
       Canadian crime fiction" (Winnipeg Free Press) returns with
       a new installment in the Joanne Kilbourn series    On a 
       Saturday bright with harbingers of spring, Joanne Kilbourn
       -Shreve, her husband, Zack, and their family prepare to 
       celebrate the season. Joanne's life is full, and at 60, 
       she has been given the chance to understand a part of her 
       history that for years was shrouded in secrecy.    Living 
       Skies is producing Sisters and Strangers, a six-part TV 
       series about the tangled relationships between the 
       families of Douglas Ellard, the father who raised Joanne, 
       and Desmond Love, her biological father. Joanne is working
       on the script with Roy Brodnitz, a brilliant writer and 
       friend. The project's future seems assured, but before the
       script is completed, Brodnitz disappears while scouting 
       locations in northern Saskatchewan. Hours later, he's 
       found - sweat-drenched, clawing at the ground, and 
       muttering gibberish. He dies in a state of mortal terror. 
       Heartsick and perplexed, Joanne resolves to learn what 
       happened in the last hours of Roy's life. What Joanne 
       discovers threatens Brodnitz's legacy, and the decision 
       about whether or not to reveal the truth is hers to make. 
       The Unlocking Season is another deeply satisfying and 
       thought-provoking novel from one of Canada's finest crime 
       writers.      The nineteenth installment in the Joanne 
       Kilbourn series. Jo is co-writing a screenplay for a made-
       in-Saskatchewan movie when a mysterious death puts the 
       project in jeopardy.      Gail Bowen is an author, 
       playwright, and teacher. Among her numerous writing awards
       are a lifetime achievement award from the Crime Writers of
       Canada and the Distinguished Canadian Award from the 
       University of Regina. Reader's Digest has called her 
       Canada's best mystery novelist. In 2018, she was awarded 
       the Saskatchewan Order of Merit and the Grand Master Award
       of Crime Writers of Canada. She lives in Regina, 
       Saskatchewan, with her husband, Ted.        Sisters and 
       Strangers was about Douglas Ellard, the father who raised 
       me, and his lifelong friend, the artist Desmond Love, who 
       was my biological father. Telling their story fully and 
       honestly mattered to me, and I had been working with the 
       writer, Roy Brodnitz, on the script. At sixty, the chance 
       to understand and accept a part of my life that until a 
       year earlier had been shrouded in secrecy was a gift, and 
       the chance to be involved in a process that meant stepping
       into a new world was seductive, but after a promising 
       start, things fell apart.     I led Georgie into the 
       living room. "The kitchen windows are open, and I've put 
       out dishes of vinegar, so we'll be able to breathe soon. 
       I'll let my family know you and I are talking."     When I
       returned, Georgie was sitting in an easy chair by the 
       window that overlooked the creek behind our house. Her 
       scrubbed, blond good looks, fine, precise features and 
       cleanly marked jawline suggested a woman with a sunny, 
       uncomplicated view of life, but Georgie's grey eyes were 
       knowing, and her lips had a way of curling in private 
       amusement at the vagaries of human behaviour. My 
       grandmother would have said that Georgie Shepherd "was 
       nobody's fool," and my grandmother would have been right. 
       Our forsythia had just bloomed. The bush's gold, bell-
       shaped flowers were a welcome burst of colour in the grey 
       late winter palette, and Georgie had half turned to gaze 
       at them. "That forsythia is glorious," she said.     "A 
       harbinger of spring," I said. "And a good omen."     
       "Let's hope," she said, "because there's troubling news. 
       You know that Roy flew up north with the production team 
       to scout locations for Sisters and Strangers."     "I 
       talked to Roy yesterday," I said. "They'd just arrived on 
       the island at Emma Lake where Ernest Lindner had his 
       studio. Roy was ecstatic. One hundred and eighteen acres 
       of virgin forest and a log cabin c
