Overview

Back from his tour of duty in Germany - and desperately missing his Momma -Elvis Aron Presley just isn't turned on by the music the way he used to be. Between his Machiavellian manager, the hangers-on and childhood pals crowding his Graceland mansion, and his own propensity for gobbling down fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches, the King tries desperately to get his heart back into Rock and Roll.

But how can the King sing when young girls - the presidents of his fan clubs - are dying all over Tennessee? Elvis suspects foul play; to prove it, and to find the killer, he'll need to navigate the resentment, sqareness, and bigotry that hound-dog him at every turn. Only by allying himself with a self-taught doctor in a small black community, his alluring - and forbidden - nurse, and a mysterious early Elvis impersonator, can Presely hope to Take Care of Business in time to save the next victim.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"One of the best Elvis novels ever...a cleverly crafted mystery...I can't wait for the next installment."--San Francisco Examiner

"This mystery has a heart as big as its humble hero's."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Give credit to Daniel Klein...for making Elvis as credible a P.I. as Kinky Friedman's wisecracking Kinky...always true to the singer's spirit and legend. We want to believe that Elvis actually would come to the aid of his endangered flock."--Chicago Tribune
