The Claire Burke Mystery SeriesBy Emma Pivato
BLIND SIGHT SOLUTION
THE CROOKED KNIFE
When Claire Burke receives a frantic phone call from Roscoe, a resident of the community living home she supervises, she rushes to his aid. Arriving in the back alley where he asked her to come, Claire finds Roscoe traumatized, sitting beside the dead body of a young co-worker.
After the mandatory police interview is completed, Claire is finally able to take Roscoe home. She knows by the way he’s acting that Roscoe must have witnessed the murder, but he won’t say anything. Claire realizes that the only way to protect him from becoming the next target is to find the murderer herself and she sets about to do just that.
After several attempts on Roscoe’s life occur, Claire sees that she’ll have to take more extreme measures to protect him – and extreme measures are Claire’s forte. She enlists the aid of her best friend Tia, along with other friends, relatives and neighbors. Soon everyone has his or her part to play in tracking down the elusive killer. Can Claire and her amateur sleuths find the killer before the killer can find Roscoe and will doing so lead to Roscoe’s revenge?
Murder on Highway 2
When Hilda’s husband, Gary, and her mother, Marion, are killed on their way to the airport, it seems like a tragic accident. But Hilda’s friends––Claire, Tia, Gus and Amanda––suspect otherwise. They are particularly upset by the death of Marion and are determined to find her killer.

Claire’s Aunt Gus begins the action by fishing for possible suspects at Gary’s business. There she bumps into an old friend who becomes an invaluable asset to their group. Slowly some important clues emerge…
