March 01 - Caught In A Trap

Due for release on August 3, 2017 from McNidder And Grace Publishers is the 380 page book "Caught In A Trap" by author Spencer Leight.

From the publisher:
Published to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Elvis death. As well as being the greatest solo star of the 20th century, Elvis Presley s career is full of controversy and Spencer Leigh s new biography 'Caught In A Trap' sorts out exactly what was going on. What separated Elvis Presley from his contemporaries, just how important was Colonel Parker, how did he come to reinvent himself for Las Vegas, did he have to die so young, and why does his legend endure. Spencer Leigh has spoken to band members, songwriters, friends, fans and many people who have worked with Elvis Presley. How good a singer was he, how good an actor was he, and was he caught in a trap, perhaps set by Colonel Parker. 'Caught In A Trap' is well researched and is full of insight and humour that we have come to expect from Spencer Leigh's music books. With a Foreword by Russell Watson.
