LA burglar Junior Bender has (unfortunately) developed a reputation as a competent private investigator for crooks. The unfortunate part about this is that regardless of whether he solves the crime or not, someone dangerous is going to be unhappy with him, either his suspect or his employer.

Now Junior is being bullied into proving aging music industry mogul Vinnie DiGaudio is innocent of the murder of a nasty tabloid journalist he’d threatened to kill a couple times. It doesn’t help that the dead journalist’s widow is one pretty lady, and she’s trying to get Junior to mix pleasure with business. Just as the investigation is spiraling out of control, Junior’s hard-drinking landlady begs him to solve the disappearance of her daughter, who got involved with a very questionable character. And, worst news of all, both Junior’s ex-wife and his thirteen-year-old daughter, Rina, seem to have new boyfriends. What a mess.

“Every now and then a writer comes along with the imagination and skill to make the whole thing feel fresh and new again. That's what veteran crime novelist Timothy Hallinan has accomplished. ”
The Washington Post on Little Elivises
“Laugh-out-loud....'You want to be funny,' says one of Junior’s sidekicks, 'hire a writer.' For that, Hallinan’s your man. ”
The Boston Globe
“"The first book in the series, Crashed (2012), was great fun. The new one, Little Elvises, is even better."”
San Francisco Chronicle
“If Carl Hiaasen and Donald Westlake had a literary love child, he would be Timothy Hallinan. The Edgar nominee's laugh-out-loud new crime series featuring Hollywood burglar-turned-private eye Junior Bender has breakout written all over it... A must-read.
—Julia Spencer-Fleming, New York Times bestselling author of One Was a Soldier
“For decades I've been looking to scratch my Fletch itch, and Crashed gave me hope -- it’s a well-written mystery with a smart, funny protagonist. I cracked open this sequel both hopeful that it would be as good and scared that I'd be let down. It didn't... Throw out everything you think you know about genre writing. Every word in this book belongs exactly where you find it.”
—Bill Barnes, Unshelved
“Best Book of 2013.”
—Crimespree Magazine
