    An erotic gay romance, a suspenseful thriller.... A series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents assigned to the investigation are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case. Special Agent Ty Grady is pulled out of undercover work. He's cocky, abrasive, and indisputably the best at what he does.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    These guys roll their eyes more than teenage girls--the only major flaw in the writing.

    Meet Louis Ives: well-groomed, romantic, and as captivating as an F. Scott Fitzgerald hero. Only this hero has a penchant for ladies clothes, and he's lost his teaching post at Princeton's Pretty Brook Day School after an unfortunate incident involving a colleague's brassiere.

    Sara says: "A Classic-to-be"
    "Not for most Americans"
    Overall

    Not as funny as Sedaris. Not as original as Roth. Not as disturbing as K. Dunn (Geek Love). Overall, however, an entertaining diversion from post 9/11 provincialism.

    Welcome to another typical summer in Florida, the season of the storms. Serge Storms. That loveable serial killer, an under-under-medicated dispenser of truth, justice, and trivia, is back with a vengeance. And not a weirdness-laced moment too soon. His cherished home state is about to take a beating, and from far more than the way-too-routine conga line of hurricanes bearing down on the peninsula. Corpses have begun turning up at a disturbing rate, even for Florida.

    "Ruined by Narrator"
    Overall

    If you first listened to "Torpedo Juice" narrated by George Wilson, as I did, then you, too, probably looked forward to Dorsey's other funnies. Unfortunately, Wyman takes the silly, but amusing, author's work over the top and into insufferable cartoonish juvenile fiction. His screaming and animations do not compensate for vocal and pacing limitations. Many times one cannot tell when he switches from one to another character and has only a few voices in his entire repertoire.

    George Wilson, bringing a relaxed, almost deadpan, reader to the superior (original?) author of this genre, Carl Hiaasen, has us rolling on the floor.

    Sadly, the loss of George Wilson and use of Wyman has us searching elsewhere for our Hiaasenish audio book fix. Any suggestions? In the meantime, I'll read Dorsey in print.

    Oliver Wyman
