The tenth novel in the highly acclaimed Joanne Kilbourn series features the murderous fallout of a tell-all book on the troubled adult children of Canadian celebrities.
When journalist Kathryn Morrissey's sensational book on the lives of thirteen adult children of prominent Canadians is published, one of the parents, Sam Parker, is furious enough to take a pot shot at the author, grazing her shoulder. Charges are laid, and Joanne's new beau, Zack Shreve, is hired by Parker as his defence counsel. At the trial, which Joanne is covering for NationTV, Shreve focuses the jury's attention not on who shot whom, but on why -- on the ethics governing the relationship between a journalist and her subject.
Morrissey's betrayal of her subjects opens up questions about an even more serious betrayal -- the betrayal of children by their parents. While everyone condemns Parker for taking a gun to Morrissey, no one can fault his defence of his only child, Glen, a transsexual. The mutual love and commitment between this father and child stands in stark contrast to the alienation between Howard Dowhaniuk, Saskatchewan's former premier, and his son, Charlie.
On the day of the verdict, Morrissey is brutally murdered, and Joanne's investigation quickly has her trying to unravel the endless knot of the relationship between parent and child.
A deeply affecting novel of trust and betrayal, The Endless Knot is a superb mystery by a virtuoso of the genre. From the Hardcover edition.
