Publisher's Summary

Ten years ago the hillbilly king of rock-and-roll, Colton Purcell, was cryogenically frozen after his premature death. Or was he? Chicago-based magazine reporter Harry Bauer intends to find out as he becomes involved in a convoluted murder plot stretching from good-old Memphis to glitzy Las Vegas, where the 10th anniversary celebration of Colton's death is in full swing. When Harry's mentor and friend, a Vegas reporter specializing in conspiracy theories, turns up murdered, Harry is intent on finding out why. But in a city where illusion often transcends reality, the truth proves more elusive than a gambler's lucky streak.
Not only is there a huge Colton imitator contest going on, but the King's only daughter is set to marry the epicene Prince of Latino Pop (despite her mother's objections), and a mysterious young man has introduced himself to Harry, claiming to be Colton's illegitimate son. The trail leads Harry to the dark side of sin city, crossing paths with a bunch of mob guys, a very efficient (and very large) contract killer, and some unexpected people from Colton Purcell's past.
There's also the murder of Colton's famous manager, the abduction of a mysterious figure from a Memphis nursing home, and a host of other problems that make Harry begin to wonder: Is it really Colton Purcell hanging upside down in that cryogenic tube full of liquid nitrogen? If Harry can live long enough, he may just find out.

I am surprised at how much I enjoyed this!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes - this was such a silly title - but the book is a no stress mystery with some feel good characters and lots of play on what we have all read in the news many years past.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Not surprising - but I don't think that the author intended any surprises. The book is like a long conversation with an amusing friend that my have had too much sugar in the last 8 hours.

What does William Michael Redman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I don't know. I will have to read the book - which I think will be fun, too.

Did Freeze Me, Tender inspire you to do anything?

Yes. I called a friend and we went to see the latest king of the blow up movies (a good day to die hard - which was amazing by the way)

Any additional comments?

I will read and listen to a few more of his books. Also I will go to see some of the movies that they showed trailors for at the die hard move. except i can't remember the titles.
