Crossover Cover: The Orange Curtain

In this book, Jack Liffey, a P.I. specializing in cases involving missing children, meets an elderly Philip Marlowe in one chapter. Other detectives Liffey has met are Gary Phillips' P.I. Ivan Monk, who appears in at least two of the Liffey books, and Nathan Walpow's amateur sleuth and former musician Joe Portugal, in Walpow's One Last Hit.


  1. By the way, have you looked at my timeline of crossovers in Donald Westlake books over at the Yahoo boards site?

  2. Yep, I have, and I incorporated the info into the manuscript!

  3. It's probably worth mentioning that Put A Lid On It's reference to Sherlock Holmes is a bit iffy. It could be to a real person or to a fictional character.
