Über diesen Titel
Book by DeMarco, GordonFrom Publishers Weekly:
Los Angeles's National COMET is the sort of newspaper that graces the magazine racks in supermarket checkout aisles. Disillusioned journalist Steve Toast covers the "Elvis beat" for the paper, and editor Stan Barfyskowicz sends him out on a spicy story: a mysterious man named Coates claims that the CIA murdered Elvis after James Earl Ray told him of a CIA plot to assassinate Jimmy Carter for refusing to stick with the Company program. Coates thinks the CIA wants to silence him permanently, a claim that Toast finds more convincing after the interview, when he himself is tailed and shot at. His informant fares even worse: Toast stops by Coates's house only to find him dead. Toast's life is further complicated when Jan Thomas, an ex-girlfriend and now West Coast bureau chief for the Washington Post , calls up claiming she wants to be "friends." DeMarco ( Murder at the Fringe ) depicts Toast as an appealing, regular guy trying to survive in a world that is strange even by L.A. standards, but the conspiracy theory lingers on long after its effervescence--and the story with it--has gone flat.
