Publisher's Summary

Serge A. Storms gives condo living a try in this latest acid-splashed Florida crime caper from the “insanely funny” (New York Times Book Review) Tim Dorsey.

Serge A. Storms and his permanently baked sidekick, Coleman, have decided to pump the brakes and live on island time. After years of manic road tripping across their beloved Sunshine State, the irrepressible anti-heroes drop anchor in the Florida Keys. They settle down in Pelican Bay, a thriving condo complex with scenic views and friendly neighbors. But the community is at war with investors who are buying up units and leasing them to young vacationers who party at all hours. With their little slice of heaven on the line, Serge takes it upon himself to convince the tourists to move on and quickly becomes a local favorite.

Meanwhile, the island chain’s long and rich smuggling heritage is causing mayhem—a gang war erupts when a local drug lord passes the family business to his young, enterprising son, and the sun-loving residents are suddenly dodging bullets.

Luckily, Florida’s most lovable serial killer is there to help!

getting more complicated

my wife laughs at me because I'm laughing while listening in my ear buds. being from Florida, the history is always right on so it makes it fun. It took the whole book to see the maze to all meet up but Surges antics, although not as detailed as in the past, are still creative.

EXCELLENT!

What a fantastic pair. Tim Dorsey's stories are incredibly entertaining. I am so glad I found them and there are so many, it will keep me listening for a while. And Oliver Wyman!!! Wow, he makes the experience of these audio stories perfect. His narration is so well done and brings the characters to life. My first Serge book was Tropic of Stupid, and have since started back to the earlier Wyman narrations. Have not tried the first 8 stories yet. Might be hard to do after hearing Wymans characterization.

Surge comes through again

Another great story by Tom Dorsey. I love the Florida trivia mixed with Surge’s ingenious bonus rounds.
Surge has a soft spot for us senior citizens. I’m waiting for him to discover the Florida model railroad show circuit.

Hilarious chaos with peacocks

This story is brilliantly narrated, and laugh out loud funny. Serge and Coleman interact with the locals and end up saving the day again.

Another banger by Dorsey.

As with all the other Serge Storm books I've read I loved it. I always get the paperbacks and this was my first time listening to one The narrator was good the voices for Serge and Coleman weren't what I have always imagined because for some reason I always read their voices in Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toros characters from the movie fear and Loathing in Las Vegas lol😂. hey it's just how they sounded when I would read them, don't judge me... anyway great book.

Once again laugh outloud antics

Serge and Coleman are on a hiatus. Slowing down and enjoying life in Florida (as only they can do). And, I loved how the title came about!

Will Serge slow down

Another great adventure with Serge back to his old antics. Great to have him back in full psycho mode.
The performance was excellent.

Another Tim Dorsey Hit

Once againTim Dorsey puts together a Florida tale worthy of the Serge and Coleman characters. Oliver Wyman is the man that brings these characters to life. No other narrator could do justice to the world that Mr. Dorsey creates

Dorsey nails Florida again.

This book series should be mandatory listening for anyone considering relocating to Florida.
Florida isn't the shiny, happy postcard crap that gets sent to Sheboygan on a postcard. The seedy underbelly is alive and well and part of what makes this state spectacular. The author is fully aware of this and uses his experience as a Tampa journalist for inspiration. Some of the capers are far-fetched; but in Florida, they're not out of the realm of possibility.
