9780007116799: Triggerfish Twist

The madness lying beneath the surface of life in Florida today is revealed in this manic tale of murder and mayhem from the acclaimed author of Orange Crush, Hammerhead Ranch Motel and Florida Roadkill – comic crime at its finest.

Triggerfish Lane, Tampa. An idyllic Florida neighbourhood… at least on the surface. When mild-mannered family man Jim Davenport moves in, he thinks his new tropical villa home is a slice of heaven. Then he meets the neighbours, and things rapidly get out of hand.

Accidentally killing a notorious bank robber and losing his job is bad enough. But then Serge Storms – the lovable homicidal maniac with an encyclopedic knowledge of Florida folklore – decides to appoint himself lucky Jim’s friend and protector, and he begins to realise that he is truly in the Neighbourhood from Hell.

Review:

From the reviews of his previous books:

‘This is comic crime at its best… Impeccable bad taste… evoking the rageful satire of Carl Hiaasen and the malicious vindictiveness of Hunter S. Thompson.’
Guardian

‘I almost exploded with laughter… it’s manic, hysterical and puts Dorsey well up there with the cream of the comic writers who seem to have made Florida the centre for satirising America in the 21st century.’
Independent on Sunday

‘Over the top, absurd and hilarious.’
Time Out

‘Makes Carl Hiaasen’s stuff look like something by Barbara Cartland.’
Daily Mirror

From the Back Cover:

'"Over the top, absurd and hilarious…Supremely entertaining"'
Time Out
