Serge A. Storms is back! The one-man crime spree hits no speed bumps as he swings through Tampa, Disney World, and parts south before settling down in Miami Beach to team up with a former sidekick and launch his long-overdue offbeat travel service. It's a labor of love as Serge forces customers to confront the underbelly of the Sunshine State's past and present. Some clients get it|others run for their lives. No matter. Bullets fly, cars crash, bodies pile up, fireballs reach into the sky, local lore is recited. The tour continues. Our overachieving antihero has a full to-do list, and he multitasks during the tourist juggernaut to battle the Palermo crime family, mystery assassins, local police, the FBI, the CIA, Fidel Castro, and telemarketers. Serge is also out to solve a forty-year-old mystery involving the infamous "Murph the Surf" gem heist. Could this be what got his grandfather killed? So we jump into the time machine to meet his eccentric granddad, Sergio, who is running a small-time bookie operation in 1964 Miami Beach, a golden time and place populated by the Beatles, Cassius Clay, James Bond, Jackie Gleason, and Flipper. Back to live action! Serge and his customers have become the hunted, hopscotching through a series of famous hotel rooms. But Serge tells them not to worry. He has a master plan, which is about to unfold in all of its insane glory...on Cadillac Beach! Download and start listening now!

    " Another great Serge book! Smart,funny, and fast-paced. "

    " More zaniness. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan Schwartz | 2/11/2014

    " There is a magical moment in this book when all of the seemingly random occurrences come together and the sheer genius of it all is revealed. Unfortunately, getting to that point was not as entertaining as a typical read, and I would go as far as to say that some of the events seemed forced so that the author can provide comical commentary, which is not necessarily bad, the book just lost some of its flow (and since this is the epitome of disjointed storytelling, flow can not be sacrificed willy-nilly). This is the second of the Serge A. Storms novels I read, and although I found them entertaining, enjoyable, and unique, I think I will shy away from the series and perhaps pick up another one of the series here and there when the mood strikes. "

    " I love all of the Tim Dorsey books. This just continues that love affair. If you are a Floridian, have been one, or just have gone on vacation. Check these out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 2/4/2014

    " This was my first book that I read of Tim Dorsey. It was a slow start for me because each chapter kept going from past to present. Once I got all the characters down, it really pick up. It was full of humor and mystery. Both, which I like in a book. The ending was a bit long for me. I think he could've skipped some of the past towards the end and kept on with the present so that Serge could solve the mystery of his grandfather in a few less pages. But I enjoyed this book and would read another of Tim Dorsey's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn | 1/20/2014

    " Serge's antics continue in this one and you find out some family backgroubd about him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thom Field | 1/20/2014

    " The best Serge novel of the 6 I have read. Great plot twists and entertaining as hell. I literally laughed out loud no less than 2 dozen times. Excellent novel. Can not wait to read Hurricane Punch. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 1/12/2014

    " Okay, couple of twists at the end. Easy to read, enjoybable but not one of my favorites in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mia | 1/9/2014

    " A fun and entertaining read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nik | 12/26/2013

    " so far this is my favorite book dorsey has written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 12/18/2013

    " This one does have a lot...Castro, CIA, the mob, jewel heists and plenty of limos. A crazy tour of Miami with Serge and Lenny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nora | 8/25/2013

    " Despite using a somewhat redundant formula, Tim Dorsey always succeeds in making me laugh and Cadillac Beach is no exception. I caution the reader that they will either love or hate Dorsey. I doubt that anyone can be lukewarm about his writing. And you must like a good mystery! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher Mitchell | 8/3/2013

    " More fun with Serge and friends, more of a mystery than the others. Enjoyed it enough to reading the next in the series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 3/7/2013

    " Primo plotting in yet another brilliant novel as true as it gets to the Floridian sterotypes Dorsey portrays, with a little less violence than "normal" for a Serge Storms story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/17/2013

    " Listened to this one on a road trip with my husband. Not my typical genre of book, but enjoyable enough to please us both. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris Marasca | 12/25/2012

    " I started with the first book of the Serge A. Storm series. This is #6 and so far, the best in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny | 4/28/2012

    " A plot summary could be found on page 40 of this book, although its events are accomplished in a wacky and "offbeat" way. The Miami, FL, pop culture trivia made this an interesting read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ace | 10/1/2011

    " Reminded me a lot of another favorite, Carl Hiaasen. Action, suspense with a lot of humor. "

    " Totally awesome series about a serial killer with a serious passion for all things Florida-centric. Very funny series! The reader in the earlier books was not as good as the one in Nuclear Jellyfish. "
