Nobody does Florida weirdness quite like this author. This novel is about thrill killer and Sunshine State historian Serge A. Storms, the most endearing psychopath since Dexter Morgan. The author offers 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, this book serves up a Yuletide feast of "pure gonzo humor". This book is much like Bad Santa and National Lampoon's Family Vacation, and blended into the author's trademark appetite for destruction, it becomes a hilarious crime fiction black comedy.

perhaps other commenter bbdavis would be interested to know that this is the 14th book in the series. "In reading, it is obvious that all the main characters have a past relationship with each other, but you never find out how and why. This is simply annoying." Maybe you should start with the first book in the series and work your way up. All of these books have been an absolute riot to read and I haven't been disappointed yet. They are a bit odd, but that's kind of the point. Read them for the humour and the kookiness, not for the twists and turns and clever plotlines.

This is an easy to read, but odd little book. The thing I most disliked is the author doesn't tie all the characters together. In reading, it is obvious that all the main characters have a past relationship with each other, but you never find out how and why. This is simply annoying. I also found the ending very anti-climatic.
