From the Back Cover
Growing up in Riviera Beach, Florida, Serge A. Storms was enthralled by the local legend of Darby, a surfing god who rode the waves before the spot was hot. Meanwhile, a murkier legend also made the rounds of the schoolyards from Serge’s youth—that of the crazy hermit living in a jungle compound far up the mysterious Loxahatchee River.
Now Serge and his permanently baked sidekick, Coleman, are back in town, with those legends looming larger than ever. But as Serge digs into the past, he attracts the attention of a cast of villains that only Florida can produce.
As the body count grows, so does the list of questions.
Why are the guys in the hard hats worried about the monkeys? How does Coleman get high with cat toys? Who is expecting the dildo? And will book tours ever be the same after Serge checks one out?
The Pope of Palm Beach is a witty and deliciously violent delight from the twisted imagination of Tim Dorsey.
