LA burglar Junior Bender has developed a reputation as a private investigator for crooks.

The problem with this is that someone dangerous is going to be unhappy with him whether he solves the case or not; most private eyes don’t have clients who punish failure with a bullet. Now Junior is being bullied into proving aging music industry mogul Vinnie DiGaudio is innocent of murder. The deeper Junior digs into the case, the stranger DiGaudio’s life looks, and Junior begins to wonder if everybody’s focusing on the wrong crime. Just as his investigation spirals out of control, his hard-drinking landlady begs him to find her missing daughter. Junior’s already at the end of his rope, but he can’t say no. And, worst news of all, both Junior’s ex-wife and his thirteen-year-old daughter, Rina, seem to have new boyfriends. Just what he needs.

“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
“Best Book of 2013.”
—Crimespree Magazine
“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
