Phoef Sutton will be in conversation with Gary Phillips for this event!
When Zerbe, the honorary brother (and roommate) of LA's toughest bodyguard/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. (Prospect Park Books)
