The Kindle (.mobi) formatting is totally horrible.
Skipped lines, paragraphs starting in the middle of a sentence, etc make this pretty much impossible to read.
I had to give up after a few chapters. Hopefully some editing will be done to make this readable.

It's a pretty good read. Some likable, quirky characters that I wouldn't mind seeing more of in future books. Some well done supporting characters that add to the overall story. Fun, interesting plot & location that are supported & maintained pretty well. The action does a pretty good job through most of the book.
An enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.
I'll be looking for more of Glen Bonham's books.
btw 3 stars from me means it's a bit above average, nothing earth-shattering, but definitely worth the read if you like this genre.

"The Elvis Interviews" is exactly the kind of book I love. It's fast-paced, action-packed, has great characters and memorable locales, and something's always happening!
You can sample 50% of Glen Bonham's novel for free at Smashwords, which is awesome. I was hooked long before the halfway point and I happily purchased the book to find out what happened after that.
Fear not: You don't need to know anything about Elvis to enjoy the novel (I am not very knowledgeable about "The King" myself). In fact, you'll learn a lot just by reading this.
I am amazed that the author is actually from Canada, not Elvis's Tennessee (knowledge I gleaned from his official website, glenbonham.com). It reads like it was written by a true native.
I give Glen Bonham's "The Elvis Interviews" my highest recommendation.
