About the Book


Stories from Down Under and all over! Humility is not a common virtue among the rich and famous. The protagonists in these narratives come from all parts of the globe, and have experienced the dizzy heights of fame and fortune. These are people who have let vanity overcome wisdom. Tall poppies need to be cut down to size, and plotting their downfall has been my pleasure.


“The Bonfire of the Vanities was hot. These yarns are hotter.” Lucifer Beelzebub

About the Author

The author will go to his grave kicking and screaming. Since commencing his literary career at age 67, he has written his last book three times. Some people just can’t stop. As a former accountant and advertising creative, Gerry became a published author to stave off dementia. He has since penned 5 novels, 6 volumes of short stories, and 2 offerings of commentary and opinion. Humour and crime are the cornerstone of the author’s creative narratives, but there have been diversions into Science Fiction and absolute fiction, all of which have won enthusiastic acclaim. Mr. Burke’s credentials have been well established with ten of his books featuring as a finalist in a variety of international writing competitions.

Gerry received a Jesuit inspired education at Xavier College in Melbourne, Australia, where he still lives. Before his career in advertising, he was employed by a mining company, and also dabbled in the horse-racing industry, as an owner and breeder. He is single but open to offers.
