About Book

Which is why in 1977 Elvis faked his own death and endured massive facial reconstruction surgery, and disappeared from the limelight to live a normal life as the unassuming Aaron King. Unfortunately, leaving fame behind also meant leaving his fortune behind, too, and now Elvis finds himself broke and living in near poverty in a small apartment in Los Angeles. Luckily for him, it turns out he's a pretty good private investigator.

Now in his seventies and contemplating a return to music (discreetly, of course), Elvis is hired to solve a baffling missing person case. The King digs deeper, and soon finds himself surrounded by the seedier elements of Los Angeles, from nefarious Hollywood producers who prey upon the young, to twin brothers with a very dark secret.

And as Elvis pieces the bizarre puzzle together, he slowly makes his singing comeback—and will be reunited on stage with someone even the King himself never dreamed possible

My Thoughts

I grew up with my mom listening to Elvis she had his albums and pictures, we watched his movies growing up. We have all wondered did he really? Could he be? What a great premise for a book and J.R. Rain draws you in from the very first page.

You start out in an interrogation room bright lights, smoke billowing, crying, people watching "I'm Elvis" he says.....

Can you imagine being Elvis one day and the next you are someone else. New look, new name, living in California and working as a P.I. to make end meet. Far cry from where you used to be. But not all things change. Guilt, drugs and booze still fill his life.

Araron has a secret only a few know but someone else is onto him. Who could it be? Aaron is busy trying to find a missing starlet while trying to come to terms with guilt from his past. Battling addictions that still linger and haunt him while dishing out the one liners and quick come backs.

A secret hard to live with, an on again off again girlfriend, a shrink who believes, a friend whose kept the secret, a missing girl, a stalker, a dead man and a need to relive it all this wrapped up in a fast paced, witty, enjoyable book.
