Local Author Bernard Burgess Book Signing

Meet local author, Bernard (Bernie) Burgess at a reading and book signing at the Faulkner County Library on Saturday, July 14 at 2:00 PM

Burgess, the author of Bert and Norah The Nickel Dime Murders, is the oldest son of West Nebraska cattle ranchers, Ruth and Bernard C. Burgess. He entered the Air Force after graduating from the University of Nebraska and retired as a Command Pilot with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. After retirement, he was a freelance writer and had a Bed and Breakfast in Cody, Wyoming. He also was a Private Investigator in Northwest Arkansas, and now lives in Bee Branch, Arkansas, with his wife and near his daughter and her family.

In this intriguing mystery, murder sets the stage for a tale woven around the undying love between a husband and wife private investigation team. Set under the wide open skies of the upper Mid-west, the beauty and serenity of this expansive country is in stark contrast to the dark side of humanity being pursued by B and N Investigations. Norah’s psychic abilities are combined with Bert’s intuitive logic and the nose of their exceptional tracking animal, a coyote-wolf hybrid named Missy. Their combined skills make them unusually gifted at finding missing people. However, unusual circumstances draw them into the wake of a cunning and brutal killer. They begin to realize that they alone possess the unique skills to bring this case to a final and suspenseful conclusion. Don’t be surprised if you say, “Wow, I did not see that coming!”
