Warning: Graphic Content and Mature Subject Matter Rosie O’Dell is a creature of beauty, brilliance . . . and unspeakable secrets. When she was young, terrible crimes had been committed against her. Tom Sharpe became Rosie O’Dell’s high school sweetheart, and in revenge for the transgressions against her, the two young lovers committed their own crime of passion together, which ultimately ripped them apart. Thirty years have now passed since Tom has seen his Rosie O’Dell, and the intervening years have been a source of endless torment for him. He has been torn between yearning for his lost love and wanting never to see her again. These days, Tom is a successful lawyer in the city of St. John’s, but trouble seems to have a way of finding him. And now here she is: Rosie O’Dell has returned to ask for his help once more. Tom Sharpe will soon find out that his troubles are just beginning. Critically acclaimed author Bill Rowe’s political memoir, Danny Williams: The War With Ottawa, was a Globe and Mail Bestseller. The novel Rosie O’Dell marks his long-awaited return to the realm of Canadian fiction, where fans will agree he is a master at the game.

Rosie O’Dell is one of those books with such brilliant writing as to lull you into forgetting you’re actually reading.-- The Pilot --
Yes, it's Bill Rowe – back this time with his third novel, which I think is by far his best. Probably one of the better novels to come out in the past few years – depending on your own tastes, of course.-- Northeast Avalon Times --
[A] deeply emotional page-turner by one of the country's finest writers.-- Megan Murphy, Indigo --
This is a terrific story that hinges on a woman who is like quicksilver, running through all the cracks.-- Globe and Mail --
It’s well-written (Rowe is an experienced and accomplished writer), the characters are excellently drawn and much of the writing is just plain funny.-- PEI Guardian --
There is not a false note in this book. All the characters are drawn with skillful insight, the descriptions are so vibrant you can almost hear the water and feel the mist of St. John's, Newfoundland. Although it has elements of a thriller, this is no gothic soap opera, but rather a brilliantly crafted look into the hearts and souls of ordinary people who are thrown into extraordinary circumstances.-- Atlantic Books Today --
This novel is a real page-turner, with lots of tension and mystery.-- The Telegram --
