It's been too long! We're happy to say that Maine author LINDA GREENLAW returns to our store to regale us with her maritime adventures and tell us about her new Jane Bunker mystery, SHIVER HITCH.
About the new book, Shiver Hitch, on sale NOW!
Jane Bunker thought she’d escaped the pollution, noise, and dead bodies of the big city when she left her job as a Miami homicide detective and moved back to the idyllic town of Green Haven, Maine. But through her work as a marine insurance investigator, it appears she’s left behind the bustle of the city, but not the murder.
Linda Greenlaw, America’s only female swordfishing captain, is author of five bestselling nonfiction books about life as a commercial fisherman: The Hungry Ocean, The Lobster Chronicles, All Fishermen Are Liars, Seaworthy, and Lifesaving Lessons, as well as the Jane Bunker mysteries: Slipknot, Fisherman’s Bend, and Shiver Hitch. She has also authored two cookbooks with her mother, Martha Greenlaw: Recipes from a Very Small Island and The Maine Summers Cookbook. She is the winner of the U.S. Maritime Literature Award in 2003, and the New England Book Award for nonfiction in 2004. Time Magazine called her 2005 Recipes from a Very Small Island, co-authored with her mother Martha Greenlaw, a “must-have cookbook”. Linda is featured in the hit Discovery Channel series Swords: Life on the Line. Greenlaw first came to the public’s attention in Sebastian Junger’s The Perfect Storm, where Junger called her “one of the best captains … on the entire east coast.” She’s also been featured on Good Morning America, Today, CBS Sunday Morning, The Martha Stewart Show, and National Public Radio. She splits her time between Isle au Haut, Maine, and Surry, Maine, with her husband, boatbuilder Steve Wessel.
