Thomas Burke

Author Code: ETBX

Born: Nov. (?), 1886 - London, England

Died: Sep. 22, 1945 - London, England

Born in London's East End, Burke's writing draws much from his experience of this area. He invented the Chinese character Quong Lee as a narrator for his mystery novels which were very popular in the 1920's. His first success came with the publication of Limehouse Nights in 1916. His other works include Song Book of Quong Lee of Limehouse (1920), Wind and Rain (1924), East of Mansion House (1926), Sun in Splendour (1926), Bloomsbury Wonder (1929), Flower of Life (1929), Tea-shop in Limehouse (1931), City of Encounters (1932), Beauty of England (1933), Night Pieces (1935), Murder at Elstree (1936) and Dark Nights (1944).
