Remember Me, Irene

Jan Burke is a current author whose Irene Kelly series has a well-deserved following. This one, my most recent read, begins with Irene's chance encounter with Lucas Monroe, her former statistics professor, now homeless and trying to recover his good name. Irene becomes increasingly aware that Lucas's emergence is tied to suicides, resignations, vicious attacks, and even murders, and tries to piece together the story before it's too late--for her.

Ms. Burke delivers a satisfying tale, a great escapist read. Some quibble with the extraordinary number of life-threatening adventures Irene encounters in the course of her lifetime (yes, there is a chronology to the stories), but this is FICTION, folks, so I say go with the flow and enjoy.
