Elvis Has Not Left the Building: A Novel (English Edition) Versión Kindle
Elvis is back—and fighting crime.
From J.R. Rain, the international #1 bestselling author of over ninety novels, comes the thrilling standalone mystery noir that asks the question: What if Elvis faked his death?
It’s tough being the King.
Which is why Elvis faked his death, endured massive facial reconstruction surgery, and disappeared from the limelight to live a normal life as the unassuming Aaron King.
Unfortunately, leaving fame behind also meant leaving his fortune behind, too, and now Elvis finds himself broke and living in near poverty in a small apartment in Los Angeles. Luckily for him, it turns out he’s a pretty good private investigator.
Now in his seventies and contemplating a return to music (discreetly, of course), Elvis is hired to solve a baffling missing person case. As the King digs deeper, he soon finds himself surrounded by the seedier elements of Los Angeles, from nefarious Hollywood producers who prey upon the young, to twin brothers with a very dark secret.
And through it all, Elvis starts making his singing comeback—and will be reunited on stage with someone even the King himself never dreamed possible...
For fans of Robert B. Parker, Robert Crais, and Sue Grafton. Elvis Has Not Left the Building is a standalone mystery thriller with over 100,000 copies sold and counting! The #1 bestseller in Mystery, Private Investigations, and Hard-Boiled Fiction.
What readers are saying:
★★★★★ "Imagining that Elvis faked his own death, lives as a PI in Los Angeles, and is tortured by not knowing his daughter is a fantastic premise for a book. Having grown up on Elvis movies and music, I loved the idea that the King still lives. Rain tells the tale beautifully, sets up a mystery expertly and is as fun to read as Elvis was to watch. Even if you never heard of Elvis and live in a cave in Siberia, you'll be thoroughly entertained by Elvis Has Not Left the Building. I'm hoping this is a series..." ―Amazon reviewer

Mr King has earned himself a strong reputation as a PI specializing in finding missing persons (usually children). In this adventure he is tasked with locating a beautiful young starlet; A case which both the Police and other PIs have abandoned when the trail went cold.
I was first introduced to Aaron King as a guest detective in the Samantha Moon series, where the detective is a young mother, forced to work at night since being turned into a vampire. In American Vampire (Vampire for Hire Book 3) Mr King is brought in to track down a little girl who has been abducted by a very bad man, they must follow a trail to 'Sin City' to help her escape. I loved the elder statesman JR Rain had created, who tries to keep under the radar yet is unmistakably imbued with a big attractive personality and smooth southern charm. I resolved to read more about him, and this book did not disappoint!
I just love the concept of this book. What if…. Elvis is alive and working as a PI in Los Angeles. And whether you’re a (huge) Elvis fan like me or not, it’s a story that can be appreciated for what it is – a quirky and light-hearted tale that I don’t suppose would actually be beyond the realm of possibility if someone wanted it enough.
Weary of the pressures of his lifestyle, Elvis faked his own death in 1977 and for the last 30 some years has been living as the likeable and sarcastically witty Aaron King. Extensive reconstructive facial surgery has changed his appearance enough not to be easily recognisable although there’s still that fleeting glimmer of something that gives people a sense of familiarity.
The mystery and private investigation procedure aspect of the story is realistic and moves along fairly quickly with a sometimes unpredictable and well thought out plot. Aaron King is hired to find a missing young starlet. Luckily, he’s pretty good at his job, and as he pieces everything together the trail takes him into sleazy neighbourhoods and into the more sordid aspects of human nature.
The narrative is in the first person and reading Elvis’ thoughts and feelings about living a totally different lifestyle, makes identifying with him very easy. It’s entertaining, with emotionally touching moments and a very well presented storyline which flows well. Great character development too with a distinctly unglamorous but charmingly modest and self-deprecating Mr King, who’s hooked on painkillers, likes his booze a little too much and desperately misses his daughter.
JR Rain has made this story work with a sympathetic portrayal of an ageing man who can’t completely distance himself from his previous life, especially when the Elvis legend is still very much alive and Aaron can hear his own songs played at any given moment and see people impersonating him almost anywhere. A fun and cleverly written story with great dialogue. I think this is one for the read again pile.
