Chasing Elvis, a new novel by Louisiana author Glenn P. Marcel has just been published by the Invisible College Press, an independent publisher. (ICP is not a vanity press.)

Elvis died in 1977, or did he?
In 1982 an Elvis impersonator clumsily robs a bank, and incredibly all of the evidence points to the supposedly deceased Elvis as being the robber. A detective hot on the trail of the robber is convinced that he is chasing Elvis, but is killed in an accidental car crash near Moscow, Tennessee, leaving behind a five-year-old daughter. Twenty years later, the daughter is a tabloid reporter for Weird Magazine, a shameless, check-out counter rag. She is assigned to cover an Elvis Festival in Moscow, discovers her fatherÂs notes, and quickly stumbles onto the Elvis-robberÂs trail.
What she discovers in rural Tennessee just may be the newsstory of the young century.
This novel has broad-based appeal and is finding an audience with fans of Elvis and non-fans who love a sharply written conspiracy piece packed with twists and turns. The characters are edgy and the plot unique. Given the proper exposure, it is believed that Chasing Elvis could become an international best-seller. MarcelÂs 1989 Juggling The Truth (Charleston Press) was critically acclaimed and a moderate regional success.
