The sequel to the remarkable Florida Roadkill – an extraordinarily original novel from a new young American author – a funny, stylish, irreverent and shocking thriller.
Tim Dorsey’s sparklingly original debut novel – Florida Roadkill – was a hyper, jump-cut, manic black comedy that took Florida Noir to new extremes. Fellow writers and critics were quick to acclaim the bright new talent that created a high-voltage crime tale suffused with blacker-than-black humour and an infectious fascination with Florida’s strange beauty.
In Florida Roadkill, the strangely lovable homicidal maniac Serge Storms drove a series of stolen cars around Florida in pursuit of five million dollars hidden in the boot of the wrong car, leaving behind him a bewildering trail of bodies. Now, Serge takes up the chase once more, tracking the car and its hidden money to a dilapidated motel in Tampa – the Hammerhead Ranch Motel.

‘This takes the Hiaasen formula and adds Tarantino-laced amphetamine to the mix; the ensuing mayhem is raucous, body-strewn and both sinister and hilarious.’ Maxim Jakubowski, Guardian
‘If you though psychopathic Serge had slaughtered enough poor sods in Dorsey’s first novel, Florida Roadkill, think again. Still in search of the missing $5M drugs money, he’s ruthless, violent and confusingly endearing. With his soulmates, drug runner Zargoza and dopehead Lenny, he’s terrorising Tampa, home to reefers, revolvers and rock’n’roll – not to mention Toto the dancing weather dog and a massive hurricane. A rollicking read that makes Carl Hiaasen’s stuff look like something by Barbara Cartland.’ Daily Mirror
‘Now here’s a rip-roaring, rollicking read and a suitable follow-up to this highly acclaimed author's sparkling debut Florida Roadkill. Comedy doesn't get much blacker. A bullet-riddled rollercoaster ride that will have you alternating between being sick with laughter and just being sick.’ Dublin Evening HeraldFrom the Back Cover:
From cocaine to moon rock to turtle eggs, this run-down motel near Tampa Bay has housed smugglers and scams of every description. But its stained and bullet-scarred rooms have never seen anybody like Serge Storms, the strangely loveable homicidal misfit – who's just about to check in.
In Tim Dorsey's acclaimed black comedy ' Florida Roadkill' Serge left behind a trail for murder and mayhem as he sped around the Sunshine State in pursuit of five million dollars hidden in the wrong car. Now, get ready for another wild ride as, with Hurricane Rolando-berto about to blow, Serge takes up the chase once more.
'This one rocks. Like Carl Hiaasen on acid, Elmore Leonard on speedballs, this doesn't let go from the first to the last page. I loved it.'
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
'Over-the-top, absurd and hilarious…all the right ingredients are present in this manic kaleidoscope of bizarre mayhem. Supremely entertaining.'
'Fiercely energetic, outrageously funny…imagine Hunter S. Thompson sharing a byline with Groucho Marx.'
'Jittery, bizarre and utterly charming, it reads as if Quentin Tarantino wrote it on a rum runner-and-speedball binge after baking too long in the sun.'
