When Zerbe, the honorary brother (and roommate) of L.A.’s toughest bodyguard and bouncer, Crush, is kidnapped, Crush springs into action to save him. Unraveling the mystery takes him to Zerbe’s estranged billionaire father, who’s obsessed with building California’s long-promised bullet train, as well as to Pasadena’s famed Rose Parade along Colorado Boulevard. This third installment in the Crush series (both of which were Kirkus Best Mysteries of the Year) is full of action, humor, and mystery.

Praise for Heart Attack and Vine

“In my world any novel that alludes to a Tom Waits song with its title gets a closer look. When that reference also characterizes the sly tone, the slick characters, and the twisty plot, then I’m singing, too. Phoef Sutton’s Heart Attack and Vine hit all the right notes for me… every chapter was steeped in snark, wit and movie references. There’s magic in this book.” — Carole Barrowman, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

“Terrific…. Crush makes a wonderful lead.” — Publishers Weekly

“Sly, knowing, and hilarious, Heart Attack and Vine is a perfect caper book set inside Hollywood’s Dream Factory that just screams ‘movie!.’ Studios, please option this immediately. With its nonstop action, snappy dialogue, and wisecracking characters, this send-up of Hollywood is a surefire winner.”
Denise Hamilton, bestselling crime novelist and editor of the Edgar-winning short story anthology Los Angeles Noir

“Like Kurt Vonnegut and T. Jefferson Parker teamed up to write a mystery.”
W.L. Ripley, author of the Wyatt Storme mysteries
