In an intriguing narrative that chronicles the story of a man who believes that it is his religious obligation to convert the United States of America to Islam, author Peter Menting takes his readers on a unique literary adventure and amusement. Elvis Cream follows one man, looking like a terrorist, as he attempts to make his move to win over the Americans. Readers can follow him on his interesting quest and adventures to find out if he would succeed on his great mission.

Elvis Cream follows the story of Sheik Ali Hasheeshee, a wealthy, mid-eastern fundamentalist, who believes his religious duty is to go to the USA and convert it to Islam. As a lookalike of a "U.S. Public Enemy Number One"— the terrorist Abdullah Al Rashidi—he has a serious image problem. His westernized daughter convinces him to visit a top New York advertising executive who advises the Sheik that the only way to make him acceptable to Americans is to adapt the image of that American icon, the King of Rock, Elvis himself. The cultural and romantic fireworks begin when the Sheik and his daughter run into a Texas family of rock n’ roll oldies’ lovers whose near bankrupt company urgently requires capital.

This book is packed with interesting scenes, dashed with a bit of humor and realistic circumstances that make it a riveting read to truly engross readers from beginning to end.
