    We have a Valentine's treat for you! Capitol Crimes' own Robin Burcell is guest speaker for this month.

    She spent nearly three decades working in law enforcement as a police officer, hostage negotiator, criminal investigator and FBI Academy-trained forensic artist.

    Burcell currently co-writes with international best-selling author Clive Cussler on the Fargo series. Pirate, their first co-written book, was released in 2016. The Romanov Ransom, next in that series, came out in 2017, followed by The Gray Ghost.

    Burcell has appeared on several true-crime television episodes as a commentator and even did a "forensic" sketch from a witness's description of "Baby Big Foot" for the Icon Films television series, Bigfoot Files, which appeared on BBC and Bigfoot: The New Evidence, which appeared in the U.S. on the National Geographic channel.
