Tim Dorsey’s gonzo series, starring the irrepressible Serge A. Storms, is packed with enough zany crime antics and loopy characters to fill a Florida swamp.

Serge has been leaving corpses strewn across the Sunshine State for more than a decade, and the authorities have begun to notice. Could his luck have finally run out? Armed with his perpetually baked sidekick, Coleman, Serge decides to resurrect his Internet travelogue website, taking readers on a guided tour of the Florida. Off they go, blogging along a getaway route through the state’s most remote bayous, back roads, and bars, where the number of cadavers begins stacking up like Serge’s website hits.

Clues and questions mount: Who are all the women being photographed naked in the swamp? What made Coleman draw on his face with Magic Markers? Where is the cruise-to-nowhere taking its drunken prisoners?

Is this all too much action for Serge to juggle? Not when everything dovetails nicely into his Secret Master Plan, and especially if it involves Serge’s favorite new obsession: tracking Al Capone’s little-known escapades in the Everglades.

So gas up the car, say good-bye to the relatives, and join Serge on the lam as he drives straight for the deepest bowels of Florida to unravel the final mysteries of Electric Barracuda.

    " I want to like Tim Dorsey's books, I really do unfortunately I don't. It just comes off to me as weirdness for weirdness sake.This is my third title and they seem to grow more disjointed and psychotic with each new book. I give up. No mas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 1/22/2014

    " If you don't enjoy a good laugh, don't read this! Serge and Coleman are on a trek through back country Florida playing at hiding from the Law. Of course, Serge deals with various miscreants en-route as only he can. Somewhere along the line, a FLI team is made up that includes Mahoney. Oh, and Serge is given a son by Molly who then splits. Put this all together, add the Everglades and you have a terrific reading romp! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 1/10/2014

    " Good. Wild antics with Surge Coleman and Little Serge? If you can overlook the serial killer part of Serge - these books are hysterical. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles Duvel | 1/6/2014

    " Ah, more adventures of Serge Storms and his buddy Coleman as they make their way through Florida. This one seemed a little bit more graphic in terms of the fates to befall Serge's victims, but as always fun to read. Tim Dorsey continues to mine Florida history and geography and intertwine these with the craziness of Serge to make a fun laugh out loud novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom | 1/2/2014

    " This is the funniest Serge tale yet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenn | 12/28/2013

    " If it's January, I can be assured of two things, snow, and another annual installment in the continuing Serge hijinks by Tim Dorsey. I could do without the snow, but not without the next chapter in the weirdness that is Serge. It was one frenetic romp, the whole book being fast paced, with Serge and Coleman being tracked by several different authorities, including a state agent named Mahoney (a recurring character in the series), the police, SWAT teams, and a cable TV show bounty hunter. Dorsey is king of the comedic mystery. Of course, now I have to wait ANOTHER WHOLE YEAR for my next Serge fix! Finishing the latest Serge book is always bittersweet. "

    " Serge A. Storms, serial killer of the deserving, is on the loose again down the Gulf Coast of Florida. Not only a fun read but a lot of interesting trivia about Florida and, in this particular novel, the Everglades. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne | 8/5/2012

    " Tim Dorsey is always a fun read (not for those easily offended though). Serge heads to the everglades, carrying out his free-lance justice (others might call it serial killing) along the way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne Anderson | 6/18/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Mcconnell | 11/25/2011

    " Again, Dorsey's writing proves simultaneously educational, hilarious, action-packed, creative, and quite charmingly depraved. I get it, and I truly enjoy it. I fly through his books laughing out loud. You should give him a try; check your morals at the door and enjoy a unique form of justice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti | 10/5/2011

    " This book was really quirky, I guess because I have never read Dorsey before. It took me awhile to get into it, but in the end I got quite a kick out of it and was sorry to get to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pete | 8/29/2011

    " Serge Storms....like popcorn. Good summer read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nik | 5/16/2011

    " took me a long time to make it through this book. which doesn't make sense because this was an excellent book. this one is well worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 5/15/2011

    " His usual goofy characters and plot-allows room for observations on American society but not as original as usual.This series contains virtually everything about Florida--history,geography,and historical sites that few visit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ghira | 4/13/2011

    " I love all things Tim Dorsey!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allan | 3/31/2011

    " Only Tim Dorsey could create serial killers that are as funny, informative and loveable as Coleman and Serge.
    As strange as it sounds if you want to learn about the history of the "Sunshine State" travel through it on the pages of Dorsey's books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 E | 3/27/2011

    " I am a big fan of Tim Dorsey and his fictional campaign to right the many offenses committed against the place known as Florida, but this Serge Storms adventure seemed a little to haphazardly thrown together. Nonetheless, some great moments. "
