AKA: "Crack" Edit

Introduction Edit

'Crack' first appears in Glory in Death when Eve Dallas questioned him during her investigation of the murder of Cicely Towers.

Description Edit

  • His cheek tattoo was vivid green and in the shape of a grinning human skull. He had a wide, dazzling grin and an unbelievably ugly face.[1] There was a tattoo of a snake slithering over his left cheek.[2]
    • A face seamed with tattoos (tattooed lips).[3]
  • His fingers were the width of soy wieners and he had big hands; the nail on his index finger was sharpened to a lethal point and painted black.[4]
    • A giant of a black man with a rocket launcher chest and a huge head;[5] he was big as a sequoia and black as onyx;[6] he was tall as a house and from the deepness of his complexion, a full black.[7]
    • Six and a half feet of muscle; He has a wide, homely face and his black skin gleamed against an open leather vest and body ink. His shaven head shone like a dark moon.[8]
  • When Dallas first met him, he was wearing feathers in his hair[9] and he loped across the street with the surprising grace of an enormous black gazelle.[10]
  • His laughter was like a thunderclap.[11]

Personality Edit

  • He was open to accepting credits/money for providing Dallas with information.[12] In Origin in Death, however, he tells Dallas, "Don't you think about paying me. I went to the park this morning, had a talk with my baby girl by the tree you and your man had planted for her. Don't ever think about paying me for a favor."[13]
    • He sometimes stops by the tree planted (by Roarke and Eve) for his little sister.[14]
  • He normally speaks in 'jive' but, on hearing of his sister's death, the jive vanished from his speech.[15] After Eve invited him to Thanksgiving dinner, the jive vanished from his voice again when he accepted.[16]

History Edit

  • He was the bouncer at an all-nude sex club across from the Five Moons when Dallas first met him. He offered to put in a word for her for five percent of her tips.[17]
  • His mother did domestic work and whored on the side; she died when Crack was sixteen and Alicia Dilbert, his sister, was four. Since his mother's death, and Alicia went to medical school, Crack raised her.[18] He described his sister as his baby girl, his heart and his soul.[19]

Interesting Facts Edit

  • Crack enjoys watching vampire movies.[20]
  • Crack said Dallas just didn't smell like a cop.[21]
  • The funky junkie in Glory in Death said Crack has a car and the pissant Reeve, down the hall from her, does too.[22]
  • We learn that Crack's name is 'Wilson Buckley' in Portrait in Death.[23]
    • He was called Crack for his habit of cracking skulls together if his customers' behavior displeased him.[24]
  • He said his sister gave him a photograph of herself the month before, for his birthday (in July).[25]
  • In Promises in Death, he kissed Eve on the mouth.[26]


YANNI Edit

  • Throughout the series, it's said that Crack got his name because that's the sound it makes when he busts heads and/or knocks them together.[27] However, in Betrayal in Death it's said he'd gotten his name for the sounds those heads made as they met concrete.[28]
