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

    Elvis is investigating the deaths of fan club presidents

    What a great mystery. I loved having Elvis Presley sleuthing to unravel the mysterious deaths of the fan club presidents. He was very likeable but he also resembled the real King. Elvis is made aware of two young girls who have apparently died in their sleep. They were both presidents of his fan club in different Tennessee cities. No one believes them to be anything but sad. No foul play is suspected. Elvis feels differently and enlists the aid of Billy Jackson, a self-taught doctor to a small black community. His nurse Selma also assists and Elvis is smitten with her. He also has to deal with a Elvis impersonator that thinks he really is Elvis. Elvis consults with a forensic psychiatrist to try to understand the killer¿s mind. Then there is another death of a fan club president. Still no one will listen to him and look into these deaths as murders. Plus Elvis keeps receiving recordings of his songs but with twisted lyrics. Who can be sending these? Could they be related to the deaths? In the meantime, Elvis goes to his class reunion and runs into Penny Woodruff, a classmate and former girlfriend. Things are getting complicated and Elvis is constantly missing recording sessions in his quest to find a killer no one else is even looking for. His is constantly have to deal with his manager and childhood pals at Graceland. His interest in Selma is constantly growing, but what about Priscilla. Elvis ends up putting himself and others in danger to discover the identity of the killer before there are any more deaths. I found this to be a delightful mystery. The Elvis character was so well constructed, I often found myself wondering if these things really happened! This is a terrific new series and I can¿t wait to read them all. You will not be disappointed! You won¿t want to put it down until the last page! I highly recommend it!
