Alafair Burke


Law graduate from Stanford University and daughter of the famous James Lee Burke, Alafair Burke was an assistant district attorney in Portland, specializing in domestic violence cases, before writing thrillers. She teaches criminal law in New York. The Wife, that was a bestseller in the United States and will soon be adapted for cinema, was really liked by Oprah Winfrey.

Autobiography for Quais du Polar

Alafair Burke has published 13 crimes novels and co-authored an additional 5, but is always certain that her manuscript in progress is doomed for the trash bin. She is a talented dinner companion if one enjoys dark tales that tend to involve murder.
