As Sean Breen and David Klein head out on their trip to the Florida Keys, there's nothing on their minds except fishing, beer and baseball. But when five million dollars is left in the wrong car, a whole convoy of homicidal wackos sets off in pursuit, leaving behind a bewildering trail of bodies.
An extraordinarily original novel from a new young American author -- at once a stylish, violent thriller and a shockingly funny black comedy. The Roadtrip From Hell...As Sean Breen and David Klein head out from Tampa Bay on their long-planned trip to the Florida Keys there's nothing on their minds except fishing, beer and baseball. But when five million dollars is dropped into the boot of the wrong car, a whole convoy of homicidal wackos sets off in pursuit of the two unsuspecting men, leaving behind a bewildering trail of bodies. From murder by shrink-fit jeans in Tampa, via mayhem at the World Series in Miami, to a convention of Hemingway lookalikes in Key West, Florida Roadkill is an unforgettable ride through the wildest corners of the Sunshine State -- a kaleidoscopic crime spree taking in sex, drugs and Satanist rock 'n' roll, lap dancing, extortion and a dozen of the most unusual forms of murder ever seen in fiction.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
'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.' Time Out '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.' Miami Herald 'Fiercely energetic, outrageously funny... imagine Hunter S. Thompson sharing a byline with Groucho Marx.' Tampa Tribune 'Some of the most wacky villains and situations since Hiaasen stuck a plastic alligator down a stranger's throat and called it Tourist Season.' Chicago Tribune
About Tim Dorsey
Tim Dorsey grew up in Riviera Beach on Florida's southeast coast, and graduated from Auburn University in 1983. For the last seven years, he has worked as a journalist on the night desk of the Tampa Tribune, where his duties include sorting through crime reports of the incredibly brutal and strange things humans do to each other in the city. Humour is a natural defence reaction to editing this parade of dysfunction, violence and stupidity, and it led to a surreal, Florida-noir way of looking at things that became Florida Roadkill -- his extraordinary first novel. He has now written two sequels, Hammerhead Ranch Motel and Orange Crush.
