Local Author Katherine Burlake Releases the Next Thrilling Chapter in Amy Prowers Series

Denver, CO March 31, 2020 – Katherine Burlake's first book, The Bystander, introduced readers to Amy Prowers as she navigated the politics and culture of Saudi Arabia. The novel dug deep into the palace intrigues, the desert culture, and the religious tensions within the area as Prowers uncovered a mystery behind the hotel bombing she witnessed and as the fate of the Saudi crown is hung in the balance. Now, Amy Prowers is back in The Last Request, as she travels across the globe to fulfill her father's wishes to find the true Shroud of Turin.

The Last Request follows Amy Prowers as she reels from the untimely and suspicious death of her father in a plane crash. Having to abandon her life and career, she finds herself trying to fulfill his last request to her and is left with words of warning: Be careful who you trust. Her journey takes her from the Balkans to Mexico as she tries to locate the real Shroud of Turin. As a North African leader and former Nazis are also on its trail, it becomes clear this journey will change not only Amy's life, but the fate of Christianity itself.

When asked about why she started the Amy Prowers series, Burlake has stated she wanted to "Give people an adventure and information they could find on the internet, but they find in the course of an interesting story that takes them away from their daily grind."

The novel draws from Burlake's rich life experience from her travels to over 130 countries, as well as research into World War II as Amy delves into her father's past and his history with the Shroud.

This newest Prowers adventure was born out of Burlake's fascination with the over 100,000 religious artifacts recovered after World War II and the power they still have over our culture. "The aura that surrounds [the Shroud] is unbelievable," Burlake says. "The idea of this book is not about if the Shroud of Turin is real or not. It's all these people who believe and pray around it."

Katherine Burlake has travelled to 130 countries and her experience living in Thailand, Germany, and England led her to working for the Department of State. She uses her experiences in international relations to write thrilling and engaging novels. The Last Request (Meroe Press, First Edition 2017, ISBN 978-0998973432, $17.95) is currently available to buy at Barnes & Noble, and Amazon in hardback, trade paperback, and ebook.
