9780062205797: When Elves Attack: A Joyous Christmas Greeting from the Criminal Nutbars of the Sunshine State (Serge Storms)

"The undisputed king of the comic crime novel."
--Providence Journal

Nobody does Florida weirdness quite like Tim Dorsey! Case in point: When Elves Attack, the New York Times bestselling author's twisted Christmas present to his legion of adoring fans who can't get enough of thrill-killer and Sunshine State historian Serge A. Storms, the most endearing psychopath since Dexter. Dorsey offers the perfect antidote for all those sappy feel-good holiday stories with this zany blockbuster extravaganza in which his wonderfully deranged serial killer Floridaphile delivers his special brand of Christmas cheer. More outrageous than Santa Claus in a Speedo, When Elves Attack serves up a Yuletide feast of the "pure gonzo humor" the New York Times Book Review enthusiastically attributes to this fearlessly funny writer. Think Bad Santa and National Lampoon's Family Vacation, blend in Dorsey's trademark appetite for destruction, and you've got hilarious crime fiction black comedy that anyone would be thrilled to discover stuffed in their Christmas stocking.

Review:

"Fans of Dorsey's slapstick-comedy style will find plenty to like. Dorsey again proves he's some sort of mad master with a concoction that features zany physical comedy, dark humor, social commentary, and Florida history."--Tampa Tribune

"The cover of Dorsey's book boasts, "A JOYOUS CHRISTMAS GREETING FROM THE CRIMINAL NUTBARS OF THE SUNSHINE STATE" and I must say...it's all that and so much more. ... Hilarious...Dorsey will hold you captive until the last word is read!"--Suspense Magazine

"The perfect antidote for all those sappy feel-good holiday novellas"--GoodReads

"A satisfyingly large punch of classic Dorsey craziness. ...Serge's paradoxical personality is at its most charming."--Publishers Weekly

"Fun to read. ...Sick and twisted, but delightfully so. Serge is one hard core Santa figure...memorable."--Gainesville Times

"Dorsey, following Carl Hiaasen's star, spin[s] goofball yarns about Florida's inherent craziness."--Star News Online

"Mayhem-filled"--Kirkus Reviews

"Dorsey serves up some zany holiday. ...Full of suspense and more than a few chuckles."--Patriot Ledger

"Hilarious. ... Dorsey never seems to run out of new and unique ways for his deranged creation to dry up the gene pools of the rude and the inconsiderate. His research of Florida's history and penchant for sprinkling arcane trivia throughout his books make each and every one a keeper."--Bookreporter.com

"With a gleefully iconoclastic streak of holiday pandemonium, Dorsey ramps up the usual Serge-and-Coleman mayhem by several notches. You're in for a heck of a sleigh ride here."--EagleTribune.com
