Serge Storms, that lovable thermonuclear vigilante, has been scattering corpses behind him for more than a decade. The authorities notice the body count, and send a task force to track down Serge. Could his luck finally have run out?
Meanwhile, armed with his perpetually baked sidekick, Coleman, Serge decides to resurrect his online travel-advice website where you, too, can learn how to experience his home state of Florida through the eyes of a fugitive.
Off they go, blogging along a getaway route through the state’s most remote back roads and bars, where the number of cadavers begins stacking up like Serge’s website hits. Clues and questions mount . . . Who are all the women being photographed in the swamp? And what made Coleman draw on his face with Magic Markers?
In other words, welcome to Tim Dorsey’s slice of America – where nobody gets out unscathed and untanned!
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
“The characters in Tim Dorsey’s raucous novel would be shot on sight in any other state.”
The New York Times Book Review
“Twisted hilarity … a compelling page-turner … a book that, if it was not funny, would be very, very frightening … Tim Dorsey is one sick bunny.”
Belfast News Letter
“In Serge Storms, the convivial, schizoid torturer with an encyclopedic knowledge of Florida, Dorsey has created a truly lovable loon.”
“Dark yet wildly funny … Imagine the violence of Edna Buchanan married to the skewed worldview of Dave Barry; now you’re ready to meet Tim Dorsey.”
