There’s a different schemer or slimeball behind every door: cocaine duckpins who have survived only by the dumbest fortune, hard-luck gigolos desperate to score, undercover cops busting undercover cops who are running sting operations on undercover cops. And just down the row, local historian and spree killer Serge A. Storms—who has stopped keeping up with his meds—is still looking for a briefcase stuffed with five million dollars … and is now capable of wreaking more havoc than hurricane Rolando-berto, the big wind gathering force offshore, just waiting for the opportunity to blow everything straight to hell. Pack up your bags and head south to sunny Florida. Leave your rational mind at home and come well armed. There’s a room with your number on it at the Hammerhead Ranch Motel.

Quotes & Awards

    New York Times Book Review

    Chicago Tribune

  • “Hilarious...Dorsey’s prose scampers at a rate just this side of manic...Fans of the fast read, you have met your match...As for the rest of you, just don’t wonder why everyone else is laughing.”

    Tampa Tribune

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A newer, nuttier individual is introduced on practically every page...It’s a sweet relief to discover that Dorsey can keep up with himself. Heaven knows nobody else can...With writers as wild and wonderful as Tim Dorsey to represent us [Floridians], even hurricane season doesn’t seem so bad.”

    Orlando Sentinel

  • “Dorsey imbues Hammerhead Ranch Motel with the same wry humor, outlandish characters, and raw-edged situations that were the driving force of his 1999 debut novel, Florida Roadkill.”

    Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

  • “Very funny stuff...Dorsey exhibits both a prodigious talent for dialogue and a delightful sense of the absurd.”

    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Heather | 2/19/2014

    " This takes place where I live and I can't help but notice the similarities between these fictional characters and the characters I know that hang out in places eerily similar to the "fictional" ones in the book. Tim Dorsey has a very warped sense of humor, and I for one love it. Laugh out loud funny but a little vulgar. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Rebekkila | 2/18/2014

    " Once I got over the huge similarities to Carl HiaaIsen I really enjoyed the book. A briefcase with 5 million dollars has gone missing and every wannabe gangster in Florida is looking for it. I have to say my favorite of the gangsters was Serge. Serge once believed that he was Esther Williams and took over a motel swimming pool and wouldn't get out. This would be a good book for any fan of Hiaasen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Amy | 2/15/2014

    " This is my 2nd Tim Dorsey book and makes a good beach read. There are lots of great references to Tampa Bay landmarks showing the author has a good working knowledge. I may return to these books in the future but for now I will return to Carl Hiassen for my next beach read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Dustin Gaughran | 1/27/2014

    " Another awesome book! I was serious when I said Serge was my new favorite literary character. I'm only three books in, but I can not wait to read the rest. "
