I found this book very enjoyable, wether Elvis is dead or not, he is and always be a legend, I recommend this book to any Elvis fan or anyone who is intrigued by the man himself or as the mega entertainer that he was and still is today. Very interesting and well researched.

My main criticisms of the book surround the moments in which I felt the author tried to lead the reader into drawing a conclusion that I did not feel was valid. One example is when it is overheard Vernon saying "They have taken" Elvis and the author questioned who "they" would be. Well, granted I can't know the "they" Vernon meant, but my first assumption was "they" were the paramedics. At this point in the story, the paramedics had taken Elvis to the hospital so his body was not there at Graceland.
I also felt that he had a bitter bias towards Ginger Alden. Much of what he said about her was merely hearsay and was not taken from official interviews or eye witnesses. Another example of feeling like he was trying to lead the reader into drawing a certain conclusion was when the author seemed flabbergasted that Ginger didn't know exactly what book Elvis had been reading. I've been married nearly 25 years and I can't tell you what book my husband is currently reading.
The book did require some patience in reading as the content did not seem to flow very well at times from one paragraph to the next. However, in the end, I felt the author conveyed his ideas well enough that I'm inclined to think he has most of it right. My intuitive feeling is that he's 85-90% of the way there. If it's true that some of the sealed records will be released in 2027, then I hope another author can get a hold of that information and maybe build on the work or refine what this author has done.
accidentally or as a result of a well orchestrated murder plot, you will be amazed at the number of discrepancies among the eyewitnesses, Colonel Parker's indebtedness to the Las Vegas mob, the ludicrous autopsy results, missing evidence, and stolen police and medical documents. Elvis Presley is dead at 42 and in a matter of only a few hours and without any supporting pathology reports, his cause of death is swiftly announced to the world as being the result of cardiac arrhythmia ... a fancy medical term for his heart stopped beating ! Why? When? How? Important questions that were never answered and a curious finding considering the other members of the autopsy team saw absolutely no evidence of heart disease or blockages. Whether you believe the original version of Elvis' death or the new evidence that suggests something more sinister, this book is a must read! You may be surprised by how little you really know about Elvis and his toxic relationship with Tom Parker.
