On January 24, Professor Alafair Burke will be featured at theBookMania Festival, sponsored by the Martin County public library system in Florida. She will discuss her fifth novel “Angel’s Tip,” on a panel with bestselling authors Karin Slaughter, James Swain, Lisa Unger, Hallie Ephron and Deborah Sharp.
“Angel’s Tip” is Professor Burke’s second book in her Ellie Hatcher series. The book is a thriller that “offers a voyeuristic glimpse into the glamorous but dangerous world of New York nightlife,” says Entertainment Weekly. Burke’s newest suspense novel was inspired by cases that she saw as a prosecutor and from the series of tragic cases coming out of New York City. More information about the book and Burke’s experiences as a prosecutor and writer can be found at her website www.alafairburke.com. Burke is a former deputy district attorney in Portland, Oregon. She is the author of what the South Florida Sun-Sentinel has hailed as “two power house series” featuring NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher and Portland Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid.
