“Roorbach has given readers a totally unique family saga that is infused with love, sex, and murder. This is the kind of story that takes you on a journey from the very first page and races right along to the unforgettable conclusion. I was drawn in by the characters, both sympathetic and despicable. This is a great book to recommend to everyone.”
— Barbara Kelly, Portland Bookstore, University of Southern Maine, Portland, ME


This funny, exuberant novel captures the reader with the grand sweep of seven-foot-tall David Lizard Hochmeyer's larger-than-life quest to unravel the mystery surrounding his parents deaths. It's a journey laden with pro football stars, a master chef and his beautiful transvestite lover, a world-famous ballerina and her English rocker husband, and a sister who's as brilliant as she is unstable. A wildly entertaining, plot-twisting novel of murder, seduction, and revenge--rich in incident, expansive in character, and lavish in setting"--Life Among Giants"is an exhilarating adventure.
