Author Discussion & Signing with Judy Lee Burke
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Saturday, April 25 at 2pm
First time author & new member of The Mystery Writers of America, Judy Lee Burke will be visiting Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore to discuss her first novel, BLACKROCK set in Michigan and Ireland.

Laine Sullivan, a former NOVAS undercover operative and internationally known architectural designer, comes out of retirement to take an assignment in Ireland riddled with secrets-money laundering, murder, hidden agendas, and false identities. Laine takes action when she accepts Miles Bourke’s invitation to design a party room in his lighthouse tower on Blackrock Island. As she embarks on a promising new relationship with Bourke, her new boss, she struggles with her past-and her quest for the truth in a covert world of espionage. Burke’s “Blackrock” is a masterful work of psychological intricacy bringing to life a modern heroine who is thwarted by people who are prepared to kill, and kill again. Readers will not forget a memorable character enmeshed in a world of power, greed, and passion. The unexpected complication echoes suspense in this gripping thriller.
