SAVE THE DATE

CRUSH is coming back! The HEART ATTACK AND VINE launch party/book signing is approaching. Tuesday evening on November 15th, at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena. Buy the book Kirkus describes as “Fast, light, and witty, Sutton’s second novel is a pleasure.” Publisher’s Weekly calls it “a terrific sequel… the multiplicity of suspects and red herrings is straight out of Agatha Christie.” I’ll be there, signing-pen in hand, and the always-entertaining Lee Goldberg will be interviewing me. We’re expecting a surprise musical guest to sing a little Tom Waits for us. And the publisher is supplying the hooch. Hope to see you.

MEETING JAMES M. CAIN

When the AFI scheduled a screening of DOUBLE INDEMNITY and said that Cain would be there in person, I had to go. I’d seen INDEMNITY before, of course, but never in a theater. And certainly never in the presence of the Master himself.
