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?

Rachel's Mom was murdered, thought to have happened during a burglary. Now Elvis impersonators are dying. How are they connected? Rachel and Boone set out to discover the truth. When I first read the setting for the book, I thought it sounded cheesy with the impersonators. I was wrong. This book was well done, and all the loose ends get tied up.

In an effort to get her security consulting business off the ground, Kelsey Allen has been spending a lot of time up in the air, rappelling down buildings and climbing through windows to show business owners their vulnerabilities to thieves. When she is hired to pose as a conservator at the Pink Palace Museum in order to test their security weaknesses after some artifacts go missing, she's ecstatic. But when her investigative focus turns from theft to murder, Kelsey knows she's out of her league - and possibly in the cross hairs.

This book was very good. I must admit, my husband enjoyed it more than I did. I got a little bogged down in the politics and technicalities, but he loved it. I am glad I stuck with it, since we have listened to the rest of the series. The author has done an tremendous job of research and putting together an outstanding series. We highly recommend it.

This was our first audio book by Patricia Bradley. The storyline was exciting and kept us guessing. In the beginning we had a hard time keeping up with all the many characters, but it all became clearer as we listened. We recommend this book if you like mystery and drama. We plan to listen to the remainder of the series.

I listened to this book with our 2 grandsons, 9 and 7. We absolutely loved it! There was lots of humor but also some drama. There were times where I was able to give them some "life lessons" based on situations in the book. I highly recommend this if you are a dog lover. We have Ellie's Story loaded up to listen to while on vacation!
