Tampa has got mixed reviews on Amazon. Its had quite a lot of hype and I think the cover is quite brilliant.
Has anyone read it?
If so - your views?

The cover is very well-executed.

The book is eminently readable -- I raced through it during my DD's 2 hour nap -- but not brilliant. The desire to pay 'homage' to Nabokov just ended up in moments of embarrassingly purple prose. That said, plenty of it was good enough, and believable enough, to leave me feeling quite uncomfortable. Definitely worth a look.
