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.
