Owner of the “unreasonably popular” Original Fat Cat’s bar in Fort Lauderdale, Dylan Asher taps into the stories and insights he’s witnessed as a bar keep. The zany cast of characters in his new Florida Fiction novel, Strike a Poser, will take you away to fun, sassy and zany adventures in the theme park capital of the world: Orlando, FL.
“A successful combination of crime caper, humor, and social satire, [Strike A Poser] simultaneously spoofs the consumerism of theme parks and conventions of the heist genre.” — Foreword Reviews
“Asher is a gripping storyteller; what he leaves to the imagination is as compelling as the con’s shifting and uncertain alliances. — Kirkus Reviews
Strike a Poser pokes good-hearted fun at all that makes Florida a one of a kind place: theme parks, fun in the sun, crazy tourists and a friendly con artist, or two! At the heart of the book, Strike A Poser follows Olivia and her accomplice Jillian as they team up with Irish bar keep and former con artist, Jack and his brother Kip to relieve a hapless millionaire of hundreds of thousands of dollars. The plan is savvy, complex, and borderline ridiculous — but if they pull it off, it will be the ultimate illusion in the land where everything is larger than life.
Thrilling, witty, and a not-to-be-missed read for anyone looking for a fun, fast-paced break from the daily grind, Strike a Poser:
- Brings the strange, sexy, sometimes scary South Florida landscape to life
- Introduces a new style of fiction Asher has deemed “hammock reading”
- Is a refreshing departure from run-of-the-mill crime capers: the reader’s imagination is respected, and they’re encouraged to connect with characters
- Provides an introduction to Asher’s other books (and even makes some satirical stabs at the three previous Olivia Jane Doe novels).
