Mary Burton loves writing suspense, researching law enforcement and forensic procedures, morning walks, baking, books, and tiny dachshunds. She also enjoys hunting down serial killers, which she does in her New York Times and USA Today bestselling novels.

Mary is routinely featured among the top ten writers in Amazon’s Author Rankings for romantic suspense. Her recent novel, Her Last Word, reached number three on the Kindle eBooks Store bestseller list.

“He was just as unwilling to talk about himself as she was herself. ‘So what changed you?’ He sipped his lemonade and carefully set his glass down. ‘Finally grew up, I suppose.’ Manny”
Mary Burton, The 7th Victim

“Beck nodded. ‘Dig in. Best food you’ll ever eat.’ She took her first bite and savoured the warm”
Mary Burton, The 7th Victim
