Welcome to the official website of James Lee Burke.

Welcome to the first "official" James Lee Burke web-site. We hope that this site and its message board forum will be a good, informal means for Jim to stay in touch with readers, and of course for readers to communicate with each other. I will be managing the site for Jim and I welcome any suggestions or comments. Please sign-up for our email list and visit the message board.
