Does anyone know this book? I've bought it a few weeks ago and read it in only a few days. It's fictional, but very well done. Here's a short review from amazon.com:

Book Description

After winning the hearts of critics and audiences (all over again) in Daniel Klein's KILL ME TENDER, Elvis Aron Presley returns once more to try his hand at crime-solving in a fun, suspenseful sequel.  
1963. Elvis Presley has just completed filming "Kissin' Cousins," a hillbilly romantic comedy of which he is instantly ashamed. His romance with Ann-Margret has just become public knowledge and Priscilla is on the warpath. It is a critical period for Elvis, a time in which he must sort out his own contradictory feelings and make life-changing choices.  

Against this backdrop, one "Squirm" Litteljon, an old army friend, contacts Elvis. Littlejon is serving life in a California penitentiary for the murder of a young actress on the MGM lot and he insists he was framed. Elvis figures that taking the case is just what he needs to escape all those people making demands of him, both professionally and romantically.  

So begins a fast-paced mystery train-ride that takes Elvis from the weird world of movie stuntmen to a ground-breaking genetics laboratory in Mexico. His sidekick on this adventure is Squirm's deadbeat, Freud-spouting lawyer who has personal insight into the psychological quirks of surviving twins -- like Elvis.  

Before he's through, Elvis will have to disprove a murder charge of his own and stop a diabolical film producer from publishing career-wrecking photographs of Elvis and Ann-Margret making love. BLUE SUEDE CLUES is a who-dunnit that keeps readers guessing right up to an ending worthy of only one man: The King!

It's really amazing how good this book was written! While you're reading you really think it's a true story with Elvis. Like everything could have happened. And besides the Elvis aspect it's still a very good book.

Since I'm finished reading it, does anyone want to buy it? I currently have it for sale on Ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...item=3590836585 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=17228&item=3590836585)). It's 7 euro (postage included).

This guy actually has a line of Elvis detective books. I have never read one but they might be pretty cool.

Here is his web site, pretty neat.

Yeah, great site....

I've ordered his first: Kill Me Tender...

I wait to order his third (and latest) Elvis detective (Viva Las Vengeance) until it's in a pocket format (the hardcover costs too much to send).

Hi, I've read this one and my brother is bringing me the other 3 when he comes to visit. They're a fun read.

I have a question for those of you who know their way around the board. Are there threads here on some of the books that have been written about Elvis? I've been reading a few and wanting to know what others I should get. I tried doing a search, but didn't really find anything but this one.

Thanks!

This summer I read two of them, Blue sued clues and Kill me tender. I think they are great, and hope to read the other ones to someday!

Hi Lindnet, I know that there are some threads about some picture books and concert books. But I dont know there titles anymore. If you can't find it you should try making a new thread.
