Torpedo Juice – Tim Dorsey

Born in Indiana and moved to Florida at an early age, he grew up in a town near West Palm Beach.  After a moving to Montgomery, Alabama he served as a police reporter for a local paper.  He then moved back to Florida, this time to Tampa where he got a job as a reporter at the Tampa Tribune.  He quit in 1999 to become a full-time writer.

The primary character in his 18 or so novels is a brilliant deranged psychopathic, schizophrenic, homicidal character who frequently kills in villains and often in very unusual and inventive ways.

In Torpedo Juice, Storm is heading to the Florida Keys where he wants to re-invent himself as the new “Jimmy Buffett”, despite the fact he has absolutely no musical talent.  However, he’s not the only serial killer heading to the keys and they all seem to converge at the No Name Pub.

The story in inventive, funny and creepy all at the same time.  Storm’s inventive use of an MRI in reeking justice on a petty criminal is priceless, forcing him to swallow bullets then putting him into an MRI so the bullets appear to have shot from within.
