Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In Dorsey's madcap 13th novel featuring vigilante serial killer Serge A. Storms (after Gator A-Go-Go), Serge gets engaged in a scheme cooked up by his faithful sidekick, Coleman, who hopes to attract tourists to Florida by offering theme vacations: "My first theme vacation: the ÿtourist fugitive.' You come down here and pretend to be on the lam." Those on the gleefully maniacal Serge's trail include a conniving lawyer gulled into thinking Serge has the key to Al Capone's lost treasure, a Florida Department of Law Enforcement task force, and Serge's personal Javert, the obsessive, dubiously lucid but insightful Agent Mahoney. Dorsey cheerfully rejoices in Florida's colorful history and in the triumph of absurdity and anarchy over law and propriety. His police are no better than Keystone Kops, while tempering his deranged protagonist's taste for complex murder is Serge's unerring ability to select worthy targets. An unnecessary final revelation aside, series fans will be pleased. (Feb.)

From Booklist

In Dorsey’s thirteenth Serge Storms novel, the manic spree-killer and Florida native son is off his meds again and building a website that encourages tourists to undertake “fugitive” vacations. Serge envisions midwestern families pretending to be “on the lam” and visiting remote, un-Disneyfied locales long favored by Florida outlaws. In pursuit is a police task force. The cops have finally tumbled to Serge as prime suspect in Florida’s most grotesque murders. And the cops are followed by a number of mysterious civilians as well as the Doberman, a reality-TV bounty hunter with plummeting ratings. Once again, it’s a Smokey and the Bandit chase story, fueled by dangerous drugs; imaginative dispatchings of arrogant Wall Street plutocrats; beautiful, dangerous women; and Agent Mahoney, whose decade-long pursuit of Serge has reduced him to speaking in the hilarious, fractured argot of a pulp fiction shamus. It’s Dorsey’s standard mash-up, bizarre and often very funny. His wonderful tour of Florida’s boltholes might make them prime-tourist destinations, but fortunately, they are very difficult to reach. --Thomas Gaughan

Having been a fan of Tim's work since Florida Roadkill, as well as living in the Southwest Florida area that is the setting for his novels, I was anticipating a fantastic read in EB...and I was not disappointed! Fantastic story line set in my backyard! The highlight of this book was discovering that one of the characters, Lucky Cole (introduced during the final escape to the Loop Road) is a real life living legend! After finishing the book, I did a little research on Lucky and found that the location of his compound in the Everglades on the historic Loop Road is not only real, but Lucky is one of the most interesting and engaging individuals, as well as a wealth of information regarding the Loop! After communicating with Lucky and his lovely wife and true redhead, Maureen, our riding group, the DOG's took a ride from Snook Haven (location where Serge and Coleman wound up after escaping down the Myakka River) to Lucky and Maureens compound on the Loop Road! After a stop for lunch at Joanie's Blue Crab Cafe (who Lucky called to make sure they were ready for a pack of DOG's), we rolled into the compound to be welcomed with open arms by Lucky and Maureen. The beer was cold, the chili delicious and the conversation engaging to say the least! Lucky is one of the premier "nature" photographers in the country, and welcomes visitors to the compound most weekends when he is not shooting pictures.

After our visit, we invited Lucky to come up to Venice FL and tour the locations that are in Electic Barracuda. Lucky and Maureen came up with their bike and we showed them Myakka State Park, Snook Haven, Casey Key Tiki Bar and the DOG Pound! We had a blast in their company, and will be visiting the Compound for an overnight camping run (the compound is equipped for such adventures).

All in all, this was my favorite of the series, mostly because we are now connected with a character in a novel who is truly a living legend! See ya soon, Lucky Cole, my brother!

With every new Serge book, I feel like I'm catching up with a long-lost psycho cousin. I am pretty sure I've read them all and I eagerly await each new arrival like an annual Christmas letter from the loony side of the family.

Serge A. Storms is a serial killer and the go-to guy for any and everything related to Florida history. If you like your antiheros a little on the far side of bizarre, you'll love Serge. All the ladies do!

Serge and his sidekick, the ever-baked Coleman, continue their adventures in this story, with Serge bringing his special kind of justice to the bad guys with the cops always hot on his trail. There are more zany antics and hysterical situations and a new surprise or two (a love child!) and of course, loads of Florida history.

Oh, and there's a bonus cocktail recipe -- The Electric Barracuda! I'm thinking most, if not all Dorsey's book titles would make for excellent cocktails (Stingray Shuffle, Gator A-Go-Go, Nuclear Jellyfish!!) and then presented as a collection in "Coleman's Cocktail Cookbook." How about it, Tim?

One wonders which comes first: will the seemingly endless stream of Florida history, trivia, and minutia that Tim Dorsey liberally taps dry up, or does Dorsey's caffeine-infused frenetic writing finally collapse like a trailer park into a Florida sinkhole?

In case you're counting, I make "Electric Barracuda" the 13th in whack-job serial killer Serge Storms' frenzied excursions across Florida, this time as the dubious host of his latest brain child - the fugitive tour. From seedy motels to gator holes and through legendary dives, from races atop ancient Indian shell piles down to mangrove swamps of 10,000 islands and into the summer hang out of Al Capone, Dorsey's manic hero and his comatose sidekick slacker Coleman play a make believe game of life on the lam, while in that parallel universe known as normality, a motley band of cops and assorted jokers - federal agents, state cops, a TV bounty hunter, a mystery man and a redhead in a turquoise T-bird - follow in hot pursuit. From one cliff hanger to the next more outrageous than the last, Serge and Coleman unwittingly elude their pursuers, treating the reader to what arguably may be some of Dorsey's most interesting scraps and bits of Florida lore. From the afore-mentioned Capone and his mysterious Loop Road hang out to Myakka River State Park's "Deep Hole," there are mounds of fascinating - if dubiously useful- information in this little gem. Meanwhile, we're introduced to a "young Serge" who, combined with Serge and Coleman, works a lot like Charlie Sheen's "Two-and-a-Half Men" on a methamphetamine bender. "Electric Barracuda" also features a more-than-cameo appearance of real life Loop Road inhabitant Lucky Cole - you'll be Googling Lucky and his photos before you close it up and put this one back on the shelf.

My first experience with Serge A Storms was in the form of an audio book titled Hurricane Punch. My husband and I listened to this book as we were in the car and laughed so hard we couldn't see straight. I have read every book Tim Dorsey had written to date. This book has made me laugh from page one. Serge A Storm is one of the funniest characters I have ever read about. Tim Dorsey knows how to tickle one's funny bone. Dorsey makes learning Florida History fun!

As a writer of True Crime and Crime Fiction, Dorsey's books are a breath of fresh air.
