Elvis and the Blue Moon Conspiracy Paperback – October 1, 2003
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.

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.
Elvis and the Blue Moon Conspiracy also brings forth conspiracy theories about the moon landing, deaths of celebrities and politicians, etc that will also make you laugh, but make you think -
Mark McGinty is a fun writer, and you will enjoy every page of Elvis and the Blue Moon Conspiracy - it'll leave you all shook up.
ellen has left the building
Jack Monroe, the tough NASA Administrator, attains Peter Dixon as his second in command. Pete's ulcer threatens to explode at any second from the stress placed on him from hiding Elvis and keeping the Blue Moon Conspiracy under wraps until it becomes a reality.
This is a must-read and highly recommended for all you space buffs who love a lot of humor tossed in. Good job, Mr. McGinty! I want to read it again...
Thank you. Thank you very much.
