    Florida history with a little mayhem thrown in for good measure

    For those of you who have had a chance to read Tim Dorsey's work in the past this latest installment of florida history and murder won't disapoint. For those of you who haven't had a chance to read this authors work let me give you a little taste of what you will experience. Surge and Coleman are this wacky duo that stand up for people who can't stand up for themselves and along the road this time I-95 they run into several of the landmarks that are true Floridania. They start in Jacksonville and head south through the state of florida tracking a diamond smuggling operation that revolves around coin fairs. I know it sounds crazy but you have to read it to believe it. You will laugh outloud and wonder how anyone could come up with such a dramatic plot with crazy characters.

    Not his best,..or his worst.

    Nuclear Jellyfish is a very good book, chock full of humor and horrible imagery. Having read all of Tim Dorsey's work, I can say that this one is in the top 5. The first one I read, Triggerfish, I purchased in the gift shop of the hotel we were staying at while on vacation in Miami. I read that in less than a day by the pool then had to find a bookstore to get another. In that one, the name slips me, Serge (one of the most likeably murderers along with Dexter,..who also happens to be a Floridian,..mmmm?), takes Coleman and friends to the very hotel we were staying in, the Sheraton Bal Harbor (formally the Americana). Serge gave me numerous historic references and stories about that hotel, ones I told at the bar that evening, impressing all that would listen. "There were really monkeys in this lobby?" Yes, there were!
    Jellyfish has a good, almost believeable storyline. Some of his books, well, they come off like he was just writing to write. This one, it feels he was writing because he enjoyed doing it. And I very much enjoyed reading it.

    For fans of off-beat Florida murder and mayhem

    Tim Dorsey is one of my favorite authors, hands-down (and I'm a bookseller of 15 years, reader of 40). He writes with a maniacal energy and sly tone that perfectly suits the genre. Imagine if Douglas Adams, Dashiell Hammett, Edward Abbey and Terry Pratchett had a love child (testing your imagination here) and that poor bastard grew up hooked on history and crack. Yeah...that's Tim Dorsey. An excellent expansion series for fans of Carl Hiaasen.
