Tim Dorsey is the internationally best-selling author of the gleefully over-the-top series starring spree-killer Serge Storms. In The Big Bamboo, Serge and sidekick Coleman head out west to take on Hollywood bigwigs and L.A. lowlifes in Dorsey's most outrageous novel yet. Before Tinseltown knows what's hit it, Serge has made an unforgettable foray to the Playboy Mansion and come up against Japanese Yakuza and a host of wacky characters. "Serge and Coleman are an Abbott and Costello for the new millennium as they bumble their way from one ridiculous exploit to the next ."-Booklist

"A lot of the failings of Tim Dorsey's novel can be forgiven because it's supposed to be a comedy. But it's hard to be THAT forgiving because--being about a serial killer and his sidekick--it isn't very funny. Narrator George Wilson sometimes sounds too old for the characters, though it's hard to say since we're never told how old lead characters Serge Storms and Coleman are supposed to be. Wilson does his best, but the audiobook is a jumble. The story is confusing, and the plot doesn't begin to coalesce until the fifth (of nine) discs. Wilson's talents are better put to use elsewhere.
