Being a showrunner has many unexpected perks. But being a matchmaker is seldom one of them.

An interview with Chuck Kozlowski and Phoef Sutton on HEART ATTACK AND VINE
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.
Set in Hollywood, Sutton’s terrific sequel to 2015’s Crush finds Caleb “Crush” Rush working as a bodyguard and courier for Rachel Fury, “part-time actress, full-time grifter,” in what turns out to be a con involving the letters of transit prop fromCasablanca and an underworld figure.
This fast-moving, wiseass, noir tale of murder and Hollywood features the return of bodyguard and bouncer Caleb Rush (Crush, 2015).
Crush (Caleb’s street name) has a simple task: his old friend Rachel Fury is paying him $500 to deliver an envelope and pick up a suitcase. The envelope is supposed to contain letters of transit from the movie Casablanca, for a collector of movie memorabilia. The suitcase is supposed to be full of cash, but both parties cheat each other. For her part, Rachel is “a part-time artist, part-time actress, and full-time grifter.” “It’s all a movie, Crush. And I’m the lead…conning rich bad guys and winning the heart of the Hunky Good-hearted Bodyguard Action Hero,” a perfect description of Crush. Like many of the characters, she’s manic and funny.
