Part mystery, part love story, part mordant commentary on America's waning presence in the world, this hugely entertaining novel tells the story of a trio of Elvis impersonators working out of the Graceland club in Olongapo, Phillipines. In their act, Baby Elvis, Dude Elvis and Biggest Elvis incarnate the King's evolving life. Their popularity grows. In a tawdry town, this successful act becomes almost an obsession. But there are those that think Biggest Elvis has to go. Re-envisioning the life of America's greatest hero, this is an edgy and evocative novel.
