2)”What’s next for Linda and Coop?”
3)”Is it true that Linda has started a second series? What’s that about?”
Linda was devoted to the Nancy Drew books as a kid, and thinks that series led to her two careers….in law, and In writing crime novels. She has long wanted to pay homage to Nancy, so she has created a second series – featuring 12 year old sleuth DEVLIN QUICK – which debuts on November 15, 2016 and is called INTO THE LION’S DEN. You can pre-order it now! Devlin’s mother is NYC’s first woman police commissioner – a job Linda wanted back in the 1980’s. Solve crimes along with Devlin!
Alex Cooper will be back in the summer of 2017 with her next caper, which picks up right after the dramatic ending of KILLER LOOK. It will be the 19th book in the series.
4) Are the restaurants at which Coop eats all real?
Absolutely! She has to eat somewhere, so it might as well be the places that Linda likes best…..
In New York City –
PRIMOLA – a delicious Italian restaurant on the Upper East Side – 1226 Second Ave, between 64th and 65th Street – all of Coop’s book jackets line the wall. Tell Giuliano or Adolfo that Linda sent you!
RAO’s – a club-like little jewel of an Italian restaurant in East Harlem – hard to get a reservation, so be sure to call first. If you can’t get in, be sure to buy the cookbooks instead. Or go to its spinoff in the theater district, called BALDORIA, and tell Frank, Jr. that you’re a friend of Coop’s.
PATROON – the most mouth-watering steak house in the city – on E. 46th between Lexington and Third. Ken Aretsky has been a character in the books, and he’ll be very glad to see you. In summertime, try the rooftop bar – it’s one of the city’s most fabulous little spots.
PJ BERNSTEIN’s – on Third Avenue off the corner of 70th Street. It’s a classic NY deli – serving overstuffed sandwiches, eggs and omelettes, and salads of every kind. A great place to refresh during a shopping spree.
FORLINI’s – If you’re in lower Manhattan – and especially if you’re on jury duty – cross the street behind the courthouse and enjoy a delicious meal. (Don’t have any vino if you’re on jury duty!)
And on Martha’s Vineyard –
Chilmark Tavern – My dinner favorite – great local fare In a casually chic setting. Friendly and delicious. tell Jenna I sent you!
State Road Restaurant – Perfect for dinner or lunch – can’t beat the food and it’s always got a buzz. ask for Mary and send my regards.
THE HOMEPORT – a family style lobster restaurant, right on the water. Eat inside, or order at the back door and take your dinner down to the beach and watch the sun set.
THE BITE – Coop’s favorite fried clam shack, and well worth the lines that form in mid-summer. Fried clams, oysters, shrimp, calamari, clam chowder – chicken fingers and bite fries for those who don’t love seafood. Ask for Karen – the Baroness von Clam as Mike calls her – and Jackie – and ask for all the local gossip, too.
THE GALLEY – sit on the rocks at the edge of the water and enjoy your lobster roll, burger, tuna melt or salad. Don’t forget to have some soft ice cream for the road. Ask for Barbara and enjoy your meal on the rocks at the edge of the water.
THE OUTERMOST INN – One of the most beautiful settings on the island is also one of the finest dining rooms. Jeannie and Hugh Taylor run an elegant inn – small and cozy – with a great restaurant. Hang out at the bar and tell Larry that Linda sent you up for a sunset drink.
THE CHILMARK STORE – Don’t pass by without stopping for a slice of Delicious pizza – the pepperoni is Alex’s favorite – or a tasty wrap to take to the beach. The early morning muffins are sinful, and Stephanie and Bill will make whatever you’d like to eat. And an iced cappuccino will perk you up in the afternoon.
LARSEN’S FISH MARKET – Betsy and Kris Larsen run a fabulous fish market. They’ll cook and crack your lobster for you, sell you the freshest fish on the east coast, and shuck your clams and oysters so you can enjoy the sunset right on the dock.
