A novel of love, gangsters, and Elvis impersonators
George Thring runs away from home. By accident.
Depressed, lonely, and tired of life, George Thring leaves work one night but never makes it home. Before he knows it, he's driven over 200 miles in the wrong direction and finds himself in a strange little town, in the middle of nowhere, during their annual Elvis Presley appreciation festival.
As he stumbles from one mishap to another, George meets the woman of his dreams, unwittingly aids in a bank robbery, and finds himself pursued by both the police and a gang of angry criminals. With a big life decision to make, and a girl to try and win over, George is given the chance to become the hero he has always wanted to be.
But is he brave enough to take it?

Lots of words
I know it’s a book but Lordy how many words are there! Story was off to a good start. Ludicrous and hilarious situations that make you shake your head and Laugh. After several chapters the book becomes laden with terminal worditis; way too much describing of people, character, places, and situations. I just wanted it to be over. 63 chapters could have been done in 50 or less.
Narrator was excellent!!

Entertaining and Clever
Wonderfully written, a real roller coaster of a story with so many witty twists the book keeps you intrigued until the final sentence. I found the 63 chapters absolutely flew by and wanted more. The characters were credible and relatable and the narrative sparklingly refreshing. What a great book to listen to, I sincerely hope there’s a follow up!
