Well, just coincidentally, I'll be interviewing Crais next month. I'll ask him what the deal is. His next book is a non-Elvis called DEMOLITION ANGEL.

If he is dead, it's really going to put a damper on the interview....and it's just gonna play hell with his current book tour.

And I'm not sure, but I think Maury Chaykin might be Canadian--he's certainly done a lot of Canadian television and film work. Might be why some of you are unfamiliar with his work. But the guy's always been a great character actor, wherever he's from. One of those guys who goes in, does a character and gets out, but you spend the rest of the film wondering where you've seen "that guy" before. Nice to hear he did a good job on Wolfe.
