Tim Dorsey's Florida Roadkill is B&N's Spotlight Author Nook Deal

MysterEbooks: Mystery, Suspense and Thriller eBooks

The Barnes & Noble Nook Spotlight is on crime novelist Tim Dorsey this month. To introduce readers to this entertaining author, the bookseller is offering the first book in his Serge Storm series, Florida Roadkill, for just 99 cents (for a limited time only).

Trivia buff Serge loves inflicting pain. Drug-addled Coleman, his partner in crime, loves cartoons. Hot stripper Sharon Rhodes loves cocaine, especially when purchased with rich dead men's money.

Then there's Sean and David, who love fishing — and helping turtles cross busy thoroughfares. Unfortunately, they're about to cross paths with a suitcase filled with $5 million in stolen money.

Serge wants the suitcase. Sharon wants the suitcase. Coleman wants more drugs … and the suitcase. A hitman wants Satan to reign supreme. A slimy, insurance-frauding dentist wants his fingers back. In the meantime, there's murder by gun, Space Shuttle, Barbie doll, and Levi's 501s.

Welcome to Florida!

There are currently 13 books in the series, plus a new holiday-themed entry, When Elves Attack: A Joyous Christmas Greeting from the Criminal Nutbars of the Sunshine State. ( Amazon | B&N )

It's ho, ho, ho time in this hilarious and wacky Florida holiday tale, featuring bighearted psychopath Serge Storms and his sidekick, Coleman. Like Santa, Serge knows who's been naughty and who's been nice. Few can give with the generosity and creativity of Serge, and as December 24 rolls around, he is filling up the Serge sleigh with an unforgettable bag of presents.

But before that, it's all a big free-range Christmas office party, where Serge will be spreading his special cheer. And there's that last-minute go-for-broke spree at the mall (just beware of those attacking elves—they bite). While you're there, skip the lame photo on Santa's lap—Serge will give you a lap ride you'll never forget. As for that addled elf Coleman, there's nothing like a white Christmas. Let it snow!

So grab a six-pack, spike the eggnog, and hit the dunes on the beach as Serge and Coleman roast some nuts on an open fire and prove that reindeer really do know how to fly.
