An old friend brings new trouble in this tightly plotted tale of Hollywood murder: "Fast, light, and witty . . . a pleasure" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Caleb "Crush" Rush, LA's toughest bodyguard/bouncer, is back in action, whether he likes it or not. Rachel Fury, a con-artist friend who vanished a couple of years ago after a big scam, has returned Hollywood. Only she's not Rachel anymore. Somehow, she's an Oscar-nominated movie star who's hiring Crush as her bodyguard. He knows better than to trust Rachel, but the old ways of the street have an irresistible allure—and his heart is too soft to turn down a damsel in distress. Soon Crush and Rachel are hooked up with Adam Udell, a bad boy film director obsessed with his own death. He's already built a gleaming white pyramid as his "tomb-in-waiting." Crush hardly has time to learn that Rachel and Adam are up to no good before he's locked up on a bogus murder charge. Clearing his name and cleaning up this criminal mess in time for Oscar Night will require all of his brawn, skill, and savvy. Rich with Hollywood lore, snappy dialogue, fast-paced action, and noir atmosphere, Heart Attack and Vine is another "terrific" thriller from the New York Times–bestselling coauthor of Curious Minds (Publishers Weekly).
