This awful hatchet job makes Albert Goldman's effort read like a nursery rhyme. I find the dark side of Elvis fascinating, but the individual described here is a truly nasty human being. He is accused of almost every evil act you could think of, all the while the authors take credit for the good things he acheived, and they question anything Elvis did worthy of merit. This is a nasty piece of work, but it does show what a spoilt, jealous, petulent bunch Billy Smith, Marty Lacker and Lamar Fike are.
How this can be described as "the best Elvis book written to date" I simply cannot comprehend, it is nothing of the sort. Garbage.

i heard they kept a feed bag out in the barn and when Lamar came over they strapped it around his head and filled it with burgers fries and turnup greens and then tied him up to the Lions head out side the front door and watched him go to town. Actually he is elvis' last living horse
