Caught in a Trap: The Kidnapping of Elvis – Two Excerpts

Chris Charlesworth, (Red Planet Books), August 2017

The first extract from Caught in a Trap features Elvis in hospital (which is true) accepting a phone call from Richard Nixon (which probably isn't). The second imagines a meeting between Colonel Tom Parker and the boss of RCA Records, Elvis' label, to discuss the commercial potential of the singer's disappearance.
