Inhaltsangabe: Caleb Rush, a. k. a. Crush, is the toughest, coolest bodyguard/bouncer in Los Angeles, a man who lives strictly by his own moral code, which doesn't exactly hew to the standards of US law. When Amelia Trask, the wild daughter of a scruples-free billionaire tycoon, comes to Crush for help, his quiet life roars into overdrive, and he has to use his wits, brawn, martial-arts training, and knowledge of the Russian mafia to stay alive and clean up the mess that young Amelia has created. Crush is a rollicking, page-turning ride through LA, full of action, suspense, memorable characters, and a sly wit. Phoef Sutton is television writer, novelist, and playwright whose work has won two Emmys, a Peabody, a Writers Guild Award, a GLAAD Award, and a Television Academy Honors Award. He was an executive producer of Cheers, a writer/producer for such shows as Boston Legal and NewsRadio, a writer for Terriers, and the creator of several TV shows, including the cult hit Thanks. Coming in 2015 is a new series of mystery novels that Sutton is co-authoring with Janet Evanovich; the first is called Goldbug.

Rezension: ""Crush" reads like Elmore Lenoard on crack... a nonstop thrill ride of a crime novel that's packed with action, smart-ass dialogue, colorful characters, and one harrowing plot twist after another. This novel will leave you breathless... and aching for the sequel."
-- Lee Goldberg, author of "The Heist" and "The Job" (with Janet Evanovich), "The Walk," and many other thrillers
"A fast-paced, hard-hitting novel layered with mystery, muscle, and heart."
-- Reed Farrel Coleman, "New York Times"-bestselling author of "Robert B. Parker's Blind Spot"
"Phoef Sutton crushes it in "Crush," a nonstop action thriller. If you like Jack Reacher, you'll love "Crush"! I did."
-- Joel Goldman, bestselling author of "Stone Cold" and "Chasing the Dead"
"A witty, irreverent and sexy thrill ride through the famous guts of Los Angeles. Sutton writes his characters in great splashes of color, stirs them into a whirlwind, and releases them into his world with glorious results."
-- Richard Ellis Preston, Jr., author of "The Chronicles of the Pneumatic Zeppelin" series
"As slick as a switchblade with a pearl handle."
-- Lee Child, "New York Times"-bestselling author of the Jack Reacher novels
"I loved this book, with its myriad twists and turns. It has the pace of an action movie and the humor we've come to expect from Phoef Sutton."
-- Bob Newhart, actor and author of "I Shouldn't Even Be Doing This"
"This brief novel crackles with sharp dialogue--'if you can't lie to your wife, who can you lie to?'--and a witty narrative voice that put the reader in mind of Elmore Leonard... This one could make it to the big screen, but don't wait for the movie. Buy the book. It may be the first of a long series."
-- "Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)

-- Lee Goldberg, author of "The Heist" and "The Job" (with Janet Evanovich), "The Walk," and many other thrillers
"In Caleb Rush, Phoef Sutton has created an iconic LA character--funny, violent, smart, broke, surrounded by lowlifes and minor celebrities--and zapped new life into a classic genre. How many Crush novels do I want to read? As many as Sutton writes."
-- Rob Long, host of NPR's Martini Shot and award-winning television writer
"Phoef Sutton is the rare storyteller who writes with amped speed, laugh-out-loud humor, and utter suspense. Crush deserves to be a smash."
-- Bruce Feiler, "New York Times"-bestselling author
"A fast-paced, hard-hitting novel layered with mystery, muscle, and heart."

"Phoef Sutton crushes it in "Crush," a nonstop action thriller. If you like Jack Reacher, you'll love "Crush"! I did."
-- Joel Goldman, bestselling author of "Stone Cold" and "Chasing the Dead"
"Phoef Sutton has created a character who's impossible not to fall in love with, in a story that moves like a bullet train through the mean streets of L.A. If you're anything like me, you'll be begging for a sequel the moment you turn the last page."
-- Robert Gregory Browne, bestselling author of the Trial Junkies series
"This book never pauses, never quits, and its hero slows down only long enough to reload. Reading it is like holding a burning firecracker in your hand. Much safer to toss it away, but where's the fun in that?"
-- Nick Griffin, screenwriter of "Matchstick Man" and "Terriers"
"A witty, irreverent and sexy thrill ride through the famous guts of Los Angeles. Sutton writes his characters in great splashes of color, stirs them into a whirlwind, and releases them into his world with glorious results."
-- Richard Ellis Preston, Jr., author of "The Chronicles of the Pneumatic Zeppelin" series
""Crush" hits you with all the power and speed of a maniac wielding a baseball bat. If you ever need anyone to take out Jack Reacher, Caleb 'Crush' Rush is your guy. An action-filled, finger-snapping romp."
-- Paul Bishop, LAPD detective and author of "Lie Catchers"
""Crush" is what would happen if "The Friends Of Eddie Coyle" went out for a night of drinking and fighting. Snappy dialogue, sharp writing, and righteous violence."
-- Jay Stringer, author of the Eoin Miller trilogy
"Award-winning screenwriter Phoef Sutton's "Crush" takes the reader on a dizzying carnival ride through the mean streets of L.A. Rush is an ass-kicker from the Patrick Swayze Roadhouse school of self defense."
-- W. L. Ripley, author of the Cole Springer and Wyatt Storme mysteries
"If you enjoy reading novels peopled by soulful characters forever taking their own psychic pulses, then "Crush" is not for you. If, on the other hand, you like hard-boiled crime fiction with a narrative line propelled by startling twists and turns and relentless action, then you won't want to miss this book. That action literally defines "nonstop," and the eponymous protagonist does the same thing for the term "heroic." I couldn't put it down till I arrived at the tangled, violent conclusion. Phoef Sutton has a winner."
-- Tom Kakonis, author of "Treasure Coast" and "Double Down"
"As necks snap, lies fester, and mercies scoff, the uncaged beasts in Phoef Sutton's wildly sly debut novel "Crush" leave L.A. a time-shared Hades. Fluent in the wicked lowdown, the novel's dizzying poisons mount, its characters a deadly, deranged splendor. The violence is cinematic, and Sutton's infrared wit kills."
-- Richard Christian Matheson, author of "Dystopia" and screenwriter of many horror films and television shows
"Like a gunshot, "Crush" starts with a bang, whizzes by at a breakneck pace, and hits its mark with precision. The setting feels like the real underbelly of L.A., and Phoef Sutton's humorous touches crackle with energy. It reads like you're watching a modern film noir. It's a cliche to say that I couldn't put it down, but that's what happened. I was riveted from start to finish."
-- Bill D'Elia, director of "Boston Legal" and "How to Get Away With Murder"
"Check out "Crush," a hilarious novel by Phoef Sutton. A cross between Elmore Leonard and Donald Westlake, Sutton is a real find. Prepare to laugh away the night."
-- Robert Ward, author of "Red Baker" and "Four Kinds of Rain"
