Jan Burke discusses her novel, “Remember Me, Irene.” She begins by explaining that this is the fourth book in the series that follows her character Irene Kelly, a detective and writer. Martinson asks Burke to read a passage from the beginning of the book about a murder victim. She talks about how she always decides to make her victims important characters to the plot of the novel, and not secondary ones like other mystery writers. She describes a scenario in the book about how a group of women get together and find out they have all been dating the same man. Burke discusses the future for Irene and how there are going to be two more books in the series. She ends the interview by talking about how she manages her writing time after becoming a successful writer.
