But what the king of medical thrillers, Robin Cook, really wants is a fountain. And he wants it outside his townhouse in Louisburg Square.
"I've been trying for a few years to get one put back in," Cook told the Track. "There used to be one prior to the Civil War. So I had some architectural drawings done and I've been trying to be politic. But everyone has their own ideas - that's the New England way - and change is so horrifyingly terrifying!"
And Cook has just hooked up with uberproducer Jerry Bruckheimer of "Armageddon" and "Enemy of the State" fame. They're collaborating on a TV series starring Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery, the heroes of "Vector," who have starred in three previous Cook works.
