About the author

Biography of Burke, Jan

Jan Burke, an award-winning mystery writer, holds the distinction of being the first woman novelist to win the Ellery Queen Mystery Readers' Award. Her popular mystery series features the newspaper writer Irene Kelly, who lives and works in Southern California. Burke was born in Texas. With her family she moved to Southern California when she was a young girl. She attended California State University, Long Beach, earning a degree in history.

After graduating, she worked for several years as a manager of a manufacturing plant. Her first novel, Goodnight Irene, was written during those years. Goodnight Irene was well received and the Irene Kelly series has grown in popularity with each subsequent novel. Other notable works from the series are Dear Irene and Hocus. Her works include Bloodlines, Kidnapped, The Messenger, and Disturbance.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2001-03-01)

Discovery of the wreckage of a Cessna in the mountain underbrush reopens old wounds and a cold case. The pilot's remains are identified as those of Detective Philip Lefebvre of the Las Piernas Police Department, reviled ten years earlier for taking a payoff and killing the sole witness to a family's murder before disappearing, along with the material evidence that would have taken a major crime lord off the streets.

As he investigates, Detective Frank Harriman must overcome the hostility of the other detectives and Lefebvre's family, the reluctance of his superiors, and threats from unexpected sources. Gradually convinced of Lefebvre's innocence, Harriman backtracks through the late detective's personal and professional lives to find the true killer, uncovering secrets that will rattle the Las Piernas force as much as Lefebvre's presumed guilt once did. Fans of the Irene Kelly series should know that Flight is told from the perspective of Harriman, Kelly's husband, with Kelly as a supporting player. This book will whet the appetite of those who have never read any of this series. Start at the beginning with Goodnight, Irene. Highly recommended.

Review by Library Journal (2000-11-15)

Burke, winner of the 2000 Edgar Award, gets to strut her stuff in another Irene Kelly mystery. This time, Kelly gets involved when her detective husband is called in to investigate the decade-old crash of a plane carrying another detective, discredited after his star witness was found dead.
