Review: OFFICER ELVIS by Gary Gusick

Officer ElvisOFFICER ELVIS By Gary Gusick

Mystery Random House LLC (April 2015)

After performing at a local old-folks home, off-duty police officer and part-time Elvis impersonator Tommy Reylander smoothes out his pompadour, climbs into his pink Caddy, and gets all shook up—fatally so, when a bomb explodes. Whether he was killed for his police work or bad singing is a mystery that detective Darla Cavannah is determined to solve.

Okay, Elvis fans, this one’s for you. Gusick delivers a well-plotted, witty mystery with interesting characters. I found it to be a page turner. My one complaint was that the main character, Darla, was rather dry. Rather reminded me of Joe Friday. Still, an excellent read.
