I read almost all your books. Enjoyed all of them, I liked the Jessy Drake character the best.
I have been reading a lot of mystery books as a teenager growing up in Russia, but did not really have a chance to taste mystery books in english. Now that i read your books, i fell in love with mystery books again and now on to reading Jan Burke books.
Thanks again. I missed your visit to Phoenix a couple of years ago (i think), saw the flyer but did not know about you then. Now I recommend your books to everyone. Hope you can make it to the desert again :)


I'm delighted by your response to Now You See Me... I enjoyed writing it, and it's wonderful to hear readers' reactions to the plot and to the character interaction.


Well, I *finally* got my hands on a copy of 'Now You See Me', and I was not disappointed.

****SPOILER ALERT for those who might wander over here without having first read 'Now You See Me'****

First of all, I have to say I really liked the surprise in Chapter 26; pages 155-156, where you bring Jessie Drake into Molly's living room. It's just plain fun when heroines from your different novels get to interact. (Like when you had Debra Laslow meet up with Jessie).

You addressed several timely issues in 'Now You See Me' which I've personally noticed through my own on-line perusals. 'Net surfing safety and the phenomenon of 'cutting' - and even their interconnectedness - was very well portrayed. (I've seen blogs where individuals describe at length their daily cutting episodes.) While I've found that not all 'cutters' are suicidal, the fear Molly had that Dassie might follow through with a suicide pact was explained well enough to be believable.

I found it interesting that you threw a wrench in the friendship between Molly and Det. Connors. I missed his usual light-hearted banter with her. While I wasn't entirely convinced of the reasons behind the breach in their relationship, it is understandable that Molly's perceived withholding of information put Connors in a difficult spot. (I suppose I just felt Connors didn't have to be such a continued jerk about it!) Hope they can mend fences!

Zack remains the hunky sweetheart he's always been, though I sometimes worry he is one day going to try to tell Molly to knock it off when it comes to her investigations. He's got the patience of Job, that guy!

The revelation that it was *not* Greg who'd seduced Dassie was brilliant. While I had a feeling something was off with some aspect of the relationship, I certainly never guessed that was it.

I also enjoyed the parallels you drew in Dassie's own mind with Dinah and Yael. Sometimes making overtly 'religious' comparisons can seem forced, but I felt they were entirely appropriate and natural.

On that note, I'll say I'm looking forward to the next Molly Blume Mystery - so I hope there will be one!



I have read all the Molly Blume books and this one is the best one yet. As always the story keeps you guessing and in suspense. Keep up the great work.
