LITTLE ELVISES, by Timothy Hallinan
At one time, the cousin, Vinnie, was famous for nurturing the meteoric (means "as fast down as up") careers of Elvis wannabes. All from the Phillie area, these beautiful boys - a few of them - could even sing, although that wasn't their prime appeal. But how does that long-ago, gone-and-forgotten fad translate into present-day peril? Junior's got to connect the dots, and as he does he runs into LA's most powerful fixer, the lovely widow of a murdered journalist (strangely unaffected by her beloved's demise), and a host of other oddballs including a hit man who likes to carve himself up. It's a 5. This guy is sooo good, read this series and then fall in love with Poke Rafferty, his other series.
