The Starlight Club 8: Elvis: Scarface, Goodfellas, Mob Guys & Hitmen by Joe Corso is a historical fiction novel following Elvis. This book will appeal most to an audience made up of adults who remember Elvis and young adults interested in Elvis and the possibility of a faked death. The Starlight Club 8: Elvis is based on the idea that Elvis had come to hate his fame because he could not go anywhere as just an ordinary person. He was always followed or recognized. This problem led Elvis to seek out a solution that would free him from his fame. With millions of dollars in the bank, he could utilize the resources of his wealth to fake his death and break the chains of fame.

The Starlight Club 8: Elvis by Joe Corso had a bit of a slow start, but as soon as Elvis entered the plot line, it sped up and became interesting really fast. I never really had an interest in Elvis, but it captivated me instead as a story of mystery and intrigue with how a celebrity could fake their death to escape their fame. I found the atmosphere of the novel to be unique and each page turned reeled me in tighter and tighter until I just had to keep reading to find out the conclusion.
