Über diesen Titel
First they created the ultimate talk-show host. Now all they need to do is create the ultimate news story.
Elvis Live at Five is an updated version of Paddy Chayevsky's Network--a fascinating behind-the-scenes drama about the people--and in this case, dead rock idols-- behind the news. Nick Upton, news manager of KVGO-TV in Dallas thought the newsroom was a jungle BEFORE his ruthless new boss took over. Then a computer geek shows Nick how to boost the ratings-let a technologically cutting-edge virtual Elvis have his own show. Elvis lives for millions of viewers in no time. But who controls Elvis? And are those people at all interested in truth in broadcasting? What lengths will they go to to keep those profits rolling in?
As Nick Upton fights for what he believes in, not only is his life in danger, but so is the future of the truth as we know it. Scathing, funny, and frighteningly close to the bone, Elvis Live at Five is a brave preview of a whole new world.
Praise for John Paxson
"Elvis Live at Five is a chilling cautionary tale. John Paxson blends his insider's knowledge of broadcast journalism together with his obviously fertile imagination to create a vivid, thought-provoking page-turner." -- Mary Jane Clark, author of Let Me Whipser in Your Ear, on Elvis Live at Five
"The book is first-rate. Is is everything a novel should be: a good story, well told, tightly and wonderfully written. Besides that, it is short, savvy, and superb, with twists, turns, and more than enough depth to keep any reader eagerly lapping up the pages." -- Dan Rather on Bones
"Paxson's story has a good pace, a tough mystery (with an action-packed climax), achingly beautiful descriptions of Montana, and an engaging hero." -- Booklist on A Golden Trail of Murder
