Sue Grafton's Secret Steak House

"The town of Serena Station, where my newest mystery is set, is roughly based on Casmalia, California. I fictionalized many details about it, including a restaurant called the Hitching Post, which I renamed the Blue Moon Café. Casmalia has no traffic lights and no sidewalks, so to find this superb steak house is a marvel. My husband and I had dinner there with the retired Detective Sergeant Bill Turner of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department and his wife, Deborah Linden, Chief of Police for San Luis Obispo--all in the interest of research, you understand." --Sue Grafton
