Crossover Cover: Demolition Angel

Carol Starkey investigates a bombing. John Chen appears, and Samantha Dolan is mentioned. Serial bomber Mr. Red eats at Big Kahuna Burger. Big Kahuna Burger has appeared in several films, most notably Pulp Fiction; this reference brings the events of this novel into the CU. Carol Starkey would go on to appear in other books by Crais. John Chen and Samantha Dolan are from Crais’ Elvis Cole novel L.A. Requiem.

For the record, I will be attending FarmerCon/Pulpfest from Friday until Sunday, and may or may not post here while I'm in Columbus. However, I will post a convention report on my personal blog, Diary of a Madman, when I return.

  1. This is one of my favorite books by Crais. I missed the Big Kahuna Burgers the first time I read it, though.

    There was a Executioner novel in which Mack Bolan fought a Murder-for-hire business where all the hitmen had code names like Mr. Red or Miss Blue. I always wondered if this Mr. Red was related somehow to them. Of course, both books are probably referencing Reservoir Dogs.

    Have fun at Farmer Con!
