Release Date: December 01, 1990
An account of Elvis's final days, his death, his autopsy and the cover-up that followed. The book uses documentation to assert that Elvis did not commit suicide as was alleged in the Albert Goldman biography of Elvis, neither was he murdered. The truth the book reveals is far sadder. A decade of investigation is represented in the book in which the authors tracked down three important sources of new information: interviews with Colonel Tom Parker, assorted aides from Elvis's entourage, the "mystery girlfriend", autopsy documents, suppressed until now and a detailed account of the autopsy itself.
