Why is everyone rushing to flee Tampa on a cruise ship to hell?

Serge is back with a bullet, torn between homicide and souvenirs. So is Coleman, torn between getting hammered and getting more hammered. Then there's good ol' Jim Davenport, the E-Team, the Diaz Brothers, and Johnny Vegas, the Accidental Virgin, cranking up the fevered action as the pot boils over on a street called Lobster Lane.

It's reunion time in the Sunshine State, and we're not just talking the family jamboree of that blood-soaked criminal clan, the McGraws, whose nastiest, meanest member is finally released from prison and heads south bent on revenge. On top of it all, the government is covering up a growing list of mysterious victims across Florida who may or may not be connected to a nefarious plot being hatched against national security.

But wait! There's more on the horizon! Who is the oddly familiar femme fatale named Rachael? Is Serge wrong that guns, drugs, and strippers don't mix? What sets the Non-Confrontationalists off on a rampage? What finally brings Coleman and Lenny together? Will they succeed in building the biggest bong ever? And can Serge surf a rogue wave to victory?

So batten the hatches, don the life jackets, and take cover as all these questions and more are answered in the latest adventure from the acclaimed author of Hurricane Punch.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Gut-busting…Wickedly fun.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “The story drips with satire, overflows with Florida lore, and is so wacky and chaotic that the plot cannot be summarized…Somehow, it all ends up making sense.”

    Associated Press

  • “Read Atomic Lobster…Expect sex, violence, and slap-stick as Dorsey spins a story that’s both cringe-inducing and comedic.”

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution

  • “Wonderfully ingenious.”

    San Diego Union-Tribune

  • “While Dorsey’s brand of comedy isn’t for the faint of heart, this fast-moving, raucous tale delivers its usual punch while gleefully skewering everyone and everything along the way.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Raunchy, raucous, and riotously funny, Atomic Lobster, as narrated by Oliver Wyman, is a whirlwind of over-the-top comic genius…The sex is weird and hot, the violence outrageous and funny, so this is not for the younger set. Wyman uses every ounce of his talent for machine-gun pacing and character creation as a panoply of bizarre people parades across the blistering Florida landscape and onto a luxurious ocean liner where anything goes. Don’t miss this red-hot radioactive lobster…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Bob | 2/15/2014

    " What can I say .... Serge is my hero! Once again he comes through! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Teresa | 2/1/2014

    " Tim Dorsey really knows how to make a serial killer a likeable character. Other than Dexter, I can't think of any other character who regularly and with abandon kills. In fact, even Dexter doesn't kill as randomly. Serge is my kind of fellow--sticks up for his friends and clears all paths to make it "safe" (HA!) for them. The locales and people are spot-on for Florida. I always look forward to his next in edition of the saga. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by A. | 1/30/2014

    " Wish I hadn't read this out of order -- I still haven't read #5, #8 or #9 -- but Tim Dorsey's still great, and Serge A. Storms kills me. Favorite criminal hero ever, for reals. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Joanne | 1/27/2014

    " I usually love Tim Dorsey and his wacky cast of characters. Maybe this is not his best book, maybe I just wasn't in the mood for his usual mayhem. "
