Editorial Reviews

Albuquerque Journal
A murder mystery filled with Albuquerque color…and offbeat characters anyone will enjoy.
Armchair Detective
The story moves smoothly, and there are some good descriptions of New Mexico’s largest city, especially it’s seedy Central Avenue.

    Very Entertaining Read

    So, maybe Elvis really is still alive. If he was, and if he was in New Mexico, maybe he really did hire Bubba. With that premise you get a few hours of entertainment, much of it hilarious, and get introduced to a great anti-hero. Well worth the effort.

    Awesomely funny & captivating page- turner!

    Honestly, when I read the overview, I thought the plot sounded a bit far-fetched and perhaps even a bit, well, stupid, but being an Albuquerque resident I had to check it out. It's been a long time since a book surpried me so much. It has a great combination of mystery & mild suspense, and manages to be hilarious at the same time. I also enjoyed the references to locations & landmarks I am so familiar with. Once I got started I couldn't put it down. HIGHLY recommend.
