A??The undisputed king of the comic crime novel.A?A??Providence Journal Nobody does Florida weirdness quite like Tim Dorsey! Case in point: When Elves Attack, the New York Times bestselling authorA??s twisted Christmas present to his legion of adoring fans who canA??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 A??pure gonzo humorA? the New York Times Book Review enthusiastically attributes to this fearlessly funny writer. Think Bad Santa and National LampoonA??s Family Vacation, blend in DorseyA??s trademark appetite for destruction, and youA??ve got hilarious crime fiction black comedy that anyone would be thrilled to discover stuffed in their Christmas stocking.

Professional reviews

"Hyperactive psychopath Serge Storms and his druggie sidekick, Coleman, head home to Tampa in hopes of a kindler, gentler Christmas. Wherever Serge goes, can mayhem be far behind? Oliver Wyman embraces his inner-screwball as he gives voice to Tim Dorsey's multitude of semi-normal and criminal nutbars in the Sunshine State. Wyman's enthusiasm is as infectious as Serge's plans are outrageous. Serge and Coleman move into a suburban tract house across from old pal Jim Davenport and his family, where holiday stress has everyone's nerves jangling. Davenport's teenaged daughter wants a tattoo, Serge and Coleman are involved in a violent incident at a mall while dressed as elves, and some untraditional gingerbread adds spice to the festivities. Oliver Wyman's high-energy performance ramps up Dorsey's insanity, providing extremely funny listening. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
