Albuquerque p.i. Bubba Mabry has "dead" Elvis for a client.
Slow to start but engaging as it progresses. Satifying conclusion.
Fun read! Loved the tongue-in-cheek writing style and found Bubba to be a very likeable fellow. Have recently ordered the second in this series.
P.I. Bubba Mabry badly needs a new client and some money as he cools his heels on Albuquerque's once-fabled Route 66. A security job for a celebrity is offered and he quickly accepts it. It turns out that the celebrity, Mr. Aaron, is the King himself, back from the dead and determined to keep a low profile. . . the one, the only ELVIS! Is it really Elvis? The story is fast, funny, and deadly.
