Just when you thought it was safe to enjoy the serene charms of the Sunshine State, look out, Serge is Back. And busting out of Chattahoochee State Hospital, without his meds. The thrill-killing Floridaphile needs to get to the bottom of his bookie grandad's bizarre 1964 death - not to mention launch "Serge & Lenny's Florida Experience", the new Miami specialty tour venture he's cooked up with his best brain-dead buddy. It's all good.

Hard to believe, but Dorsey's Serge and Lenny adventures get wackier, funnier and better with each book. Read 'em and weep tears of hilarity.

Serge Storms, the history-loving, letter-writing, offbeat, possibly certifiable serial killer, returns in Dorsey's delicious sixth novel. The adventure begins, briefly, in 1964, then switches to 2004, then 1996, and then, a little bit later, to "the present," then 1963, then 1918, then--well, you get the idea. What's it about? That's harder to follow than the time frame, but try this: Serge's grandfather died 40 years ago, possibly suicide, possibly murder. The man was a bit of a blowhard, though Serge prefers to think of him as a storyteller, and others have described him as crazy. Dear ol' Granddad may, or may not, have been involved in a notorious jewel heist. And Serge, while perpetrating various scams and running afoul of various questionable individuals, wants to know how his grandpa died. Dorsey's novels are slapstick comedies, grand adventures featuring vastly larger-than-life heroes and villains, wacky plots, and plenty of laughs. Recommend this one to fans of Donald E. Westlake and Carl Hiaasen.
