Patently absurb...a wonderful romp in neverland!
---Midwest Book Review

From the Back Cover

Months before man landed on the moon in 1969, NASA Administrator and former JFK adviser Jack Monroe thought the mission needed a slight touch-up. He turned to Peter Dixon, his second-in-command and an avid Elvis fanatic, and together this dynamic pair concocted a spectacle that would honor the pinnacle of human achievement: a lunar celebration to cap the space race with an outer space gala called Operation Blue Moon. To make it happen, they needed to hire the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley.

Dani Mitchell is a young, ambitious journalist from The Sensational Nation whose recent breakout interview with the Dalai Lama earned critical acclaim. Her next assignment is an exclusive one-on-one with Elvis - but the King is nowhere to be found.

With Monroe and Dixon standing in her way, Dani embarks on a mission to track down Elvis Presley. Was Neil Armstrong the first man to walk the moon? Or was it somebody else? In the final days before the first moon landing, Dani will find her way to the bottom of NASA's mysterious Operation Blue Moon and learn the true story of Apollo 11.

You know, if you've been to Graceland, and seen the graves of Elvis, his mother, etc next to the swimming pool, experienced the Jungle Room, the whole ticket - then look across the street and see the Lisa Marie airplane, and seen women screaming and crying mourning the King, you'll know Elvis isn't dead - he is among all of us - thank you thank you very much.
My family had ties to Elvis - my aunt was from Memphis and Dr. Nic (the guy convicted of giving Elvis all the drugs) and my aunt's family there were friends - When you went to my aunt's house - there were Elvis' hankies under glass, and other memorabilia Elvis gave them thru Dr. Nic.
I loved the King, but I was more a Beatlemaniac.
So Elvis and the Blue Moon Conspiracy is just the kind of book that would bring back memories.
And Elvis and the Blue Moon Conspiracy does all of the memories with panache.
Author Mark McGinty deftly rewrites history as he has Pete Dixon, one of the NASA boys suggesting Elvis join the crew of Apollo 11, and be the first to set foot and then do a concert on the moon and then the rest of the Apollo 11 gang do their thing.
Firstly, can something soooo out there stay secret??
Seems a reporter Dani Mitchell was dissed at Graceland by a car that turned out to be NASA folk, and she starts sniffing all the way to Houston...Houston, we have a problem!
As for Elvis' part in it, that is for you to read -
I must tell you Mr. McGinty treated him with respect and the way Elvis acted to everyone - he was one of the most polite, giving celebrities ever. And he is treated with reality, but as he was - a really nice guy.

I just finished reading this book and was so highly entertained, I'm telling everyone about it. Being an avid reader, I'm selective about the kinds of books I read. If it doesn't capture my attention in the first few pages, I'll typically put it down. This book was outrageously funny with enough real-life factual data to make it seem almost plausible. Kudos to the author's amazing imagination and creation of such rich characters. A must read for anyone looking for a good laugh!

This is a very entertaining story, and I was pleased to see that many of the events in the story -- with a few obvious exceptions ;) -- are in sync with Elvis' real life. This book would make a great gift for the Elvis fans on your list.
