"Did Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe have a secret love affair? Finding out is half the fun. The other half is reading one of the funniest, sexiest, and best-written novels to come along in years; the words dance and sing on the page, the dialogue is often side-splitting. Robert S. Levinson has written a great read." ---NELSON DEMILLE

"It's a treat for movie buffs as ex-crime reporter Neil Gulliver gumshoes his way through Hollywood to save his soap opera sex queen ex-wife from a murder rap. Author Robert S. Levinson, a long time writer and producer, clearly loves killing industry types, and his enthusiasm for murder and mayhem is infectious. Bodies pile up. Secrets are revealed. Do Elvis and Marilyn hold the key? I'm not tellin'." ---PARNELL HALL

"Robert S. Levinson's THE ELVIS AND MARILYN AFFAIR is a hoot of a book. Great fun. A quick, clever read. A throwback in tone to those giddy old forties detective films with a twist of the fifties and sixties on the side. The idea and the mixed flavors of time and place would carry this one alone, but Levinson's light hearted approach and clean style make it even better." ---JOE R. LANSDALE

The denouement will stun you. This is a must read." ---ERNEST LEHMAN
