“The convoluted, crazy, and captivating (not to mention, satirical) plot in Fitzhugh’s genuinely funny, Heart Seizure, skewers celebrities, politicians, soccer moms, HMOs, TV news hounds, and the military — but not necessarily in that order.”

– PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“This is a book you can’t describe, you have to experience it, hanging on tight and keeping those pages turning. Fitzhugh writes with comic flair and [with] fast, funny, deft action.”

– TIMES-PICAYUNE

“Fitzhugh leaps into that elite bunch of crime writers such as Carl Hiaasen and Donald Westlake, whose dark, off-kilter humor can double as social satire. With his fifth novel, Fitzhugh becomes one of the premier writers of comic mysteries skewering contemporary society with humor that’s sophisticated and sometimes even cheap…. no subject is taboo, nor are his novels for the faint of heart.”

– FT. LAUDERDALE SUN-SENTINEL

“This book is a delightful escape as well as a cautionary satire on whether the best interests of the people are really being served by those in public office… At his best, Fitzhugh successfully skewers, among other things, bureaucracy, politicians and middle management on this fantastic psychedelic road trip. At worst, Heart Seizure widens the cynics’ vortex just a little for those of us willing to fall in laughing all the way down.”

– THE GLOBE AND MAIL

“Robin Cook teams up with the Three Stooges in this madcap cross-country romp … Fitzhugh skewers politicians, the media, the medical establishment, and the military in this riotous page-turner that will make readers laugh out loud. Highly recommended.”

– BOOKLIST

“Fitzhugh slathers on the satire, sparing no excess in a send up of medical, hospital, HMO, and presidential evil doings…[it’s] pleasant nonsense…[and] harmless fun, with some good thwacks at America’s idiotic health system.”

– KIRKUS REVIEWS

“Anyone who considers the cudgel the weapon of choice in satire’s armory should welcome Fitzhugh’s latest… Rousing, lightweight fun — just don’t expect Voltaire.”

– LIBRARY JOURNAL

“Heart Seizure is just the latest reason Fitzhugh is one of America’s funniest writers. Take heart, and chuckle ‘til it hurts. You could die laughing.”

– JACKSON, MS CLARION-LEDGER

“Sit down and buckle up with this intensely zany and thoroughly enjoyable romp by author Bill Fitzhugh. His wit and talent for taking a serious subject and transforming it into comedy is a rare but greatly appreciated talent. Heart Seizure is a unique offering, and a welcome one, for the reader looking for something a little different… This political satire is a winner, from the very first page to the last.

– CURLED UP WITH A GOOD BOOK

“You turn the pages laughing all the way and marveling at the true extent of Fitzhugh’s talent. For he is the only writer out there who has the ability to make up plausibility. That’s right, just when the plot makes no sense he throws something out there that amuses and makes the story move forward no matter how preposterous it is. I can’t wait for the next book.”
