In this adventure Serge Storms bumps it up a notch, joining a CIA operation so covert even the agency doesn’t know about it.
First, there’s the media frenzy over the “Hollow Man”, a gutless corpse found on the beach. Could this be the work of Serge, that eccentric trivialista and one-man vigilante squad?
But also why is he extensively photographing foreign consulates right before the critically important Summit of the Americas comes to town? Does it have something to do with Serge’s declaration to his ever-stoned sidekick, Coleman, that he’s decided to become a spy?
The intelligence community isn’t amused, and they want answers: How did Serge and Coleman get so cosy with the president of a banana republic? Who is the femme fatale with a heart of gold – and national pride? Why is the congressman in favour of the latest oil spill? When did everyone forget how to drive?
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
“Hilarious. … Serge Storms is, hands down, one of the most original and just-plain-captivating characters in modern crime fiction.”
“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.”
“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.”
“A good writer with plenty to say … To Dorsey’s eye, the Florida [that] residents love is awash in racism, smut, dope, corruption, and casual murderous violence. You can tell he loves it still.”
Cleveland Plain Dealer
