There are really no better guides for a virtual tour of Florida than Serge Storms and his ever-inebriated sidekick Coleman (The Riptide Ultra-Glide, 2013), especially if you can appreciate a plot with plenty of slack for hysterical digressions bound by the time-tested moral: Don’t be a jerk. This time philosophical serial killer Serge is working for his Hammett-channeling friend Mahoney to track the worst offenders in an epidemic of scam artistry. Harnessing the power of metadata (no one said this book isn’t smart), Serge and Coleman uncover a dazzling string of culprits. Then they dispatch them in a series of science experiments intricately plotted to amuse Serge and make ironic statements. Serge punctuates his hunt for miscreants with tours of Florida attractions (LEGOLAND, Tupperware Confidence Center), a mission to unite the Democratic and Republican parties, and a plot to avenge his love Felicia’s murder. This strong entry in the long-loved series is an incisive, darkly humorous road trip; perfect for those weary of Dexter’s sobriety, and a great crossover match with Christopher Moore’s adventures (Sacré Bleu, 2012). --Christine Tran
“One would have to be unbalanced to write this book, afflicted to read it, and delusional to understand it. Naturally, I loved almost every word of it.” (Bookreporter.com)
“Tim Dorsey balances the right blend of crime, mystery, humor and zaniness to a very special and engaging effect.” (ReviewingTheEvidence.com)
“Another quirky plot that will make you laugh out loud... All of Tim Dorsey’s books have been a delight, but I think this one is at the head of the pack.” (BookLoons.com)
“Wild; lovingly violent; and very, very clever.” (MyrtleBeachOnline.com)
A fun book to read. The workings of Serge’s mind is a wondrous thing. (The Oklahoman)
