Elvis Aron Presley was born on January 8, 1935.
Also born that day was Jesse Garon Presley, Elvis's twin. The world has believed Jesse Garon was born dead. Until now.
Jesse Garon is the story of Private Investigator Phil Allman's pursuit of Jesse Garon Presley, the heretofore thought stillborn fraternal twin of Elvis Presley.
In a twisting journey to solving three murders, Allman travels from his hometown of Philadelphia through the bustle of New York City to the New Jersey shore and ultimately, to Memphis.
A tough, smart ex-cop and divorced father in his mid-thirties, Allman is approached at an Elvis Forever meeting by attorney Mark Downes, whose "dark hairline seemed to begin smack in the middle of his forehead as if to hide the thoughts therein". Downes reveals a dark Presley secret: Jesse Garonís impoverished parents placed him on the black market unbeknownst to anyone.
The baby was sold to the Zimmermans, a middle-class Philadelphia family; Jesse Garon Presley was brought up as Robert Zimmerman.
Representing clients whose identity he refuses to reveal, Downes hires Allman to track down Zimmerman, now missing for several years. Allmanís arduous search for Zimmerman, while ultimately fruitful, also navigates his personal search for success, love and stability.
Harrowing, yet finally revelatory, Jesse Garon is a noir detective novel in the classic sense and the first in a series featuring Allman, a P.I. with a hard-boiled yet modern sensibility, sensitivity, and sense of humor.
