The story comes complete with a laundry list of main characters, a large and unwieldy cast that, in many writers' hands, would collapse under its own weight. But Dorsey juggles them neatly, like an expert clown, and the tangled plotlines come together like, well, a game of Twister on the 4th of July without pants. (Read the book, you'll understand.)
Davenport is your average guy, a conscientious business consultant and family man. His wife, Martha, is a bit high-strung, it's true, but they and their children settle down on Triggerfish with high hopes for the future. Little do they know that Lance Boyle, who owns many of the properties on their street, is vying to buy up the rest so he can raze the houses and make a tidy sum on townhouses. To further that goal, he fills his rentals with the worst lowlifes he can find -- hoping to force a sharp decline in neighborhood values and encourage the few remaining homeowners, like the Davenports, to sell and move away.
There's more, but it'd be easier if you just read the book. Dorsey, an author of some note, is my latest discovery and a wonderful addition to my must-read list. The spiritual cousin of fellow Florida writer Carl Hiaasen, Dorsey is hilarious and inventive. This is the perfect time to visit his little corner of Florida.

I'm impressed Dorsey was able to present as many characters as are in this novel, keeping them all straight for the reader, and then bringing them all together for a slam dunk ending.
I haven't read other Dorsey novels, but I can see the style getting repetitive after a while, so I'll take him in small doses. If you enjoy this book, be sure to check out Dave Barry's Tricky Business, which is a hilarious Florida crime caper from a talented comedic writer.
Until I started reading Triggerfish Twist, I never would have thought that I could laugh out loud while reading a book... especially one so full of violence! While I wasn't sent into teary-eyed hysterics on every page, I often found myself chuckling at various characters and events in the book, and smiling through the whole thing. The characters are numerous, but easy to keep track of, and all of the separate stories twist and weave so well together that even if some of the events are predictable, you don't know exactly how they're going to go off, and, when they do, it's perfect. I could easily imagine this book being a "Bubble Boy" type movie, only with more blood.
Triggerfish Twist definitely isn't the Iliad, or any other great thought provoking tome, but it's worth a read if you want a good laugh.
Dorsey has really hit his stride. He still has uncontrollable psycho Serge Storms in the thick of things, but he's only one part of the whirl of obsessive and mostly unlikable characters pinballing off each other in the seedier parts of Tampa, FL. Serge is still a completely crazy killer but he kills such repugnant people, you can't feel too sorry for them. And Serge has an oddly sentimental streak to him--in this book, he does what he does in defense of the innocent suburbanites doing their best to live peacefully in what should be a nice quiet neighborhood. Serge likes them and envies them in a way, and will defend them to the death--generally someone else's.
As others have said, fans of Carl Hiaasen and Dave Barry should check this out--Dorsey may still be on the B team, but he's a zany Florida crime novelist to be reckoned with, and his books will make you laugh!
