Happy Birthday Elvis - wherever you are

Elvis would have been 77 years old today.

Happy Birthday Elvis!

I say 'would have', but for many, Elvis is still alive after faking his own death - was he really found on the toilet or is that just an urban myth?

For some 'There's a guy works down the chip shop swears he's Elvis', but according to novelist JR Rain after extensive facial reconstruction, he's now working as a private investigator in South California.

It's tough being the King.

Which is why in 1977 Elvis faked his own death and 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. A young starlet, at the beginning of a promising movie career, has seemingly disappeared off the face of the earth.

As Elvis digs deeper, he 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 as Elvis pieces the bizarre puzzle together, he slowly makes his singing comeback — and will be reunited on stage with someone even the King himself never dreamed possible.
