Overview

Elvis's birthday in Memphis, and crowds again head to Graceland and the King's tomb. Across town at the venerable Burke's Book Store, a new King is gracing Memphis: John Grisham, best-selling author extraordinaire. The King is dead! Long live the King! But at Bailey's the afternoon coffee crowd of losers is gathering as normal. Losers? Not when you read the secrets they hold that made them such. . . . A blues guitarist who overheard the plot to assassinate Martin Luther King, Jr. . . . involving J. Edgar Hoover! An ex-journalist who stumbled upon a Contra training ground in Arkansas. A co-ed stripper whose brothers forced her to participate in safe heists. An autistic man named Gustav Mahler, who only wants music—and love. All types of royalty, it turns out, may thrive just where you least expect to find it.
