NEW YORK (AP) - The latest sleuth for best-selling crime writer Linda Fairstein is relatively new to the mystery game.

Fairstein’s next series will be for readers ages 8-12, with a protagonist who fits the demographic: 12-year-old Devlin Quick. Dial Books for Young Readers told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the first book in the series, “Devlin Quick: Into the Lion’s Den,” will come out Nov. 1. The books will feature Devlin and her best friend Booker as they take on cases in New York City, including a caper at the New York Public Library.

Fairstein is best known for her Alex Cooper crime series. In a statement issued through Dial, she said the new books are inspired in part by her childhood reading of the Nancy Drew mysteries.
