Prof. Alafair Burke Publishes 6th Novel, ‘212’

Alafair S. Burke, Professor of Law and Hofstra Research Fellow

Professor Alafair Burke has published her sixth novel, 212. The novel has received favorable reviews from Publisher’s Weekly, Booklist, the Library Journal, and the Associated Press, which said, “The book is a page-turner, but Burke has more than entertainment in mind. This third novel in the Ellie Hatcher series explores culture clash between the superrich and the rest of us, considers the societal cost of the increasing commercialization of sex, and explores computer technology both as a source of mischief and as a tool for criminals and the public servants who investigate them. More than that, ‘212’ is a story about love — what it looks like at its best and its worst and how it seduces people into behaving in ways that are both noble and abhorrent.”
