Elvis Presley was never accused of a crime, but for years the FBI kept a file on Presley because of the crimes that went on in the background of his world: death threats made against him; a major extortion attempt while he was in the Army in Germany; complaints about his public performances, a mention of a paternity suit; the theft by larceny of an executive jet which he owned and the alleged fraud surrounding a 1955 Corvette which he owned. These formerly Top Secret Files show dramatically how the FBI and other law enforcement agencies had to react to crimes in Presley's world.

As part of its Top Secret series, New Century (P.O. Box 7113, The Woodlands, Tex. 77387-7113; 936-295-5357) presents The FBI Files on Elvis Presley. Editor Thomas Fensch (Conversations with John Steinbeck) introduces the book ominously: "Elvis Presley never committed a crime. Elvis Presley was never accused of any crime. But for decades the FBI kept a file...." The target of death threats, a paternity suit and public complaints about his performances, Elvis Presley kept J. Edgar Hoover and his agency busy. In the dramatically serious tone of Sergeant Friday ("just the facts, ma'am"), Fensch alleges that these files, representing a "microcosm [of Presley's] behind-the-scenes life," will inform Presley's countless devotees about the uglier side of fame.
