"Shooting Elvis is a fresh, hip, nerve-racking thriller that reads like a cross between Pulp Fiction and Thelma & Louis. It's the story of small-town girl Mary Alice Baker - a.k.a. Nina Zero - who, lured by a little extra cash, is conned into delivering a package for her handsome, Harley-riding boyfriend, Wrex. After accidentally blowing up LAX, Mary says good-bye to her good-girl life and hits the road, proving the first rule of survival in L.A.: Where there's gas in the tank, there's hope." "Wanted by the FBI as a psycho terrorist and hunted by two sadistic thugs who witnessed the explosion, Mary dyes her hair, pierces her nose, and changes her name. She goes to ground in the loft of a sexy, mercenary painter and a filmmaking Hollywood wannabe, knowing that it's only a matter of time before one of them sells her out for a whiff of that drug called fame. As she wises up, Nina takes on her pursuers in a gutsy succession of bone-chilling confrontations and rockets to tabloid fame as the new darling of the shock-hungry media."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
