It’s Elvis Week in Memphis, and homicide Detective Rachel Sloan isn’t sure her day could get any stranger when aging Elvis impersonator Vic Vegas asks to see her. But when he produces a photo of her murdered mother with four Elvis impersonators–one of whom had also been murdered soon after the photo was taken–she’s forced to reevaluate. Is there some connection between the two unsolved cases? And could the recent break-in at Vic’s home be tied to his obsession with finding his friend’s killer?
When yet another person in the photo is murdered, Rachel suddenly has her hands full investigating three cases. Lieutenant Boone Callahan offers his help, but their checkered romantic past threatens to get in the way. Can they solve the cases before the murderer makes Rachel victim number four?
It’s Elvis week in Memphis! Rachel, a homicide detective, sure learns a lot about Elvis tribute artists as she takes a cold case about a murder 17 years earlier, which then becomes hot as new murders occur. The book not only has the suspense element, but then has other elements woven in – a young girl abused by her father and what that does to her. Another woman who marries a man not right for her because “Girls seeking love because their fathers were absent. And a father doesn’t have to be missing to be absent.” The author does a marvelous job of giving just enough information to keep me totally guessing the entire novel. I loved it and highly recommend it! I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I am freely writing a review – all thoughts and opinions are my own.
