No Sunscreen for the Dead
If you like your humour dark and twisty, then you’ll love Tim Dorsey’s outrageous Serge Storms series of crime novels.
America’s most lovable psychopath, Serge and his human narcotic partner Coleman regularly carve a trail of destruction and marijuana roaches through the state of Florida. This time Serge’s interest is drawn to one of the largest retirement villages in the world – also known as the site of an infamous sex scandal between a retiree and her younger beau that rocked the community.
What starts out as an innocent quest to observe elders in their natural habitats, sample the local cuisine, and scope out a place to live out the rest of their golden years, soon becomes a Robin Hood-like crusade to recover the funds of swindled residents. But as the residents rally for Serge to seek justice on their behalves, two detectives are hot on the heels of Serge and Coleman’s own murderous trail.
In this epic adventure that jumps between present day and the tumultuous times of the Vietnam war, mystery fans are in for a witty and deliciously violent delight from the twisted imagination of Tim Dorsey.
What people are saying about Serge Storms:
“Over-the-top, off-the-wall, too-much-is-never-enough, Florida insanity was never described so authentically and with such enthusiasm.”
“Humor really doesn’t get better than this. Dorsey has a style all to his own that is simply not replicated anywhere.”
“Serge and Coleman are a match made in heaven and I am still laughing … truly a great read and I can’t wait to delve into more of Dorsey’s work.”
“This is Pulp Fiction on steroids with an acid tab chaser. There is insanity on every page and every page is a good time. Twists and turns, and some of the most creative homicidal mayhem I have ever read.”
“… for pure pleasure and entertainment you just can’t beat the maniacal style of the Serge Storm series.”
“Hilarious. … Serge Storms is, hands down, one of the most original and just-plain-captivating characters in modern crime fiction.” Booklist
“Entertaining … funny … irreverent and loving at the same time … [Dorsey] leaves the reader gasping for breath.” Washington Post Book World
“The characters in Tim Dorsey’s raucous novel would be shot on sight in any other state.” The New York Times Book Review
“Excellent … I almost exploded with laughter as I read Dorsey’s novel. It’s manic, hysterical, and puts Dorsey well up there with the cream of comic writers who seem to have made Florida the centre for satirizing America in the 21st century.” Independent
“Twisted hilarity … a compelling page-turner … Tim Dorsey is one sick bunny.” Belfast News Letter
