“Pineapple Grenade displays Dorsey’s talents as a comedian, a Florida historian, a political and social commentator, and a well-seasoned writer.” (Gainesville Times)
“A “guy” book, a real “man’s man” kind of novel. But kind of fun for the ladies to enjoy as well - they kind of give women an insight into the weird, wonderful way a man’s mind works when the boys are let loose with their toys.” (Ventura County Star)
“A blast… side-splitting satire.” (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

From the Back Cover
Miami sets the weirdness bar, and Serge Storms is back in action and ready to pole vault over it.
First, there's the media frenzy over the "Hollow Man," a gutless corpse found on the beach. And yet people aren't dazed to find dead sharks in downtown boulevards. Could this be the work of Serge? And why is he photographing foreign consulates right before a critical summit comes to town? Is it because Serge wants to become a spy? He senses that something big is about to go down in Miami that might involve a recently reactivated CIA cell.
The intelligence community isn't amused and wants answers. How did Serge and his sidekick, Coleman, get cozy with the president of a banana republic? And when did everyone in the city forget how to drive? Meanwhile, a mysterious man is shipping military arms, causing Homeland Security to take measures. The chaos escalates as Serge hurtles everyone toward a fateful climax, destined for the summit jamboree on Biscayne Bay.
Put on your favorite pink flamingo shirt and find all the answers in . . . Pineapple Grenade!

In this one, Serge decides he is going to both clean up Miami of tourist crime and become a spy for whatever country takes him first. Super Serge made me laugh out loud and I was almost brought to tears by the ending.
I loved it.
And is there a better "add absolutely nothing to the story" than Johnny Vegas? I think not!
If your world is making you angry, this as any of the other Serge stories will quickly reboot your sense of humor, as Surge fights to bring order to our totally whacked out world with his usual OCD brilliance. I really enjoyed the realism of the Rebel's depiction and would have liked to see more of them.
In the most current adventure, Serge gets it in his head that he's going to become a spy. Not that anyone has hired him, mind you. He just starts "spying" in obvious ways to catch the attention of various CIA groups and different embassies. His strange (but normal to him) activities stand out because a major summit of Latin American leaders is about to happen in Miami, and everyone has security on their mind. So while everyone has Serge on their radar, no one knows exactly who he's working for. Is he part of the network of one of the small countries? Is he being run by one of the CIA groups competing with each other for territory? Even the different groups themselves don't know if Serge is working for them as part of a power play by opposition within their ranks. There's a good chance that Serge doesn't even know who he might be assisting.
And then there's Serge's sidekick, Coleman... who is blissfully stoned and agreeable to anything... so long as there's more beer or weed coming.
For me, Dorsey novels are an escape into a world of bizarre entertainment while getting some not-so-subtle commentary on how people in Florida roll.Read more ›
