Sunshine State trivia buff Serge A. Storms loves eliminating jerks and pests. His drug-addled partner Coleman loves cartoons. Hot stripper Sharon Rhodes loves cocaine, especially when purchased with rich dead men’s money.

On the other hand, there’s Sean and David, who love fishing and are kind to animals—and who are about to cross paths with a suitcase filled with $5 million in stolen insurance money. Serge wants the suitcase; Sharon wants the suitcase; Coleman wants more drugs … and the suitcase. In the meantime, there’s murder by gun, Space Shuttle, Barbie doll, and Levi’s 501s.

In other words, welcome to Tim Dorsey’s Florida—where nobody gets out unscathed and untanned.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The characters in Tim Dorsey’s raucous novel would be shot on sight in any other state.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “A blast…Floridian readers may laugh or wince as Dorsey skewers the state’s foibles and stereotypes.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Dark, yet wildly funny…Imagine the violence of Edna Buchanan married to the skewed worldview of Dave Barry; now you’re ready to meet Tim Dorsey.”

    Booklist

  • “A good writer with plenty to say…To Dorsey’s eye, the Florida residents love is awash in racism, smut, dope, corruption, and casual murderous violence. You can tell he loves it still.”

    Cleveland Plain Dealer

  • “A twitchy, edgy, romp through Florida’s seamy side.”

    Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will | 2/20/2014

    " It's not as good as his other books. More of a pilot episode. The next book really reveals more of Serge's unique personality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony | 2/16/2014

    " This is the first book in the Serge Storms series that I inadvertently picked up with book 11 last year. This is more background and ground work for some of the story that carried through Nuclear Jellyfish. Still one of my current favorite book characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas Nevins | 2/15/2014

    " ok sort of a carl hiiason on steroids, almost difficult to follow as there were so many wacked out characters, traveling everywhere in florida......interesting read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy | 2/11/2014

    " read all his books except his last 5 they were all great. A great book to read if you want a good laugh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 2/6/2014

    " This book has many references to Tampa, Florida. Although most of the key characters are quite horrid, it was still an interesting read. The author used to write for our local newspaper here in Tampa. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 1/20/2014

    " Another quintessential South Florida crime spree with stupid humans galore. Made slightly more interesting by the lead criminal nutbar's interest in Florida history and landmarks including a slight mention of my husband's uncle's dive bar in Tampa. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Titi | 1/15/2014

    " HILARIOUS! It had me falling out of my chair laughing the whole time (quite literally). Not much in the way of plot and character development, but it was really, REALLY funny. If you're ever looking for an easy but fun read, this is perfect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 1/11/2014

    " I found it funny and macabre at the same time. Looking forward to reading some of Dorsey's other books. Enjoyed the irreverent humor and the bizarre characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 1/9/2014

    " Dark graphic humor. I was shocked at first. Once I realized it was a both parody and release of the author's past experience I viewed it with laughter, tears, and ... shock still. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie | 1/7/2014

    " the first in the series. Dorsey finds his momentum in later novels, but still entertaining "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathan | 1/3/2014

    " A wonderfully demented book about a serial killer. It is chock a block full of Florida strangeness. Well worth a read "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jan H. | 11/30/2013

    " too much violence and other junk didn't even finish reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Johnson | 11/25/2013

    " Fast paced to the point of being somewhat hard to follow. Entertaining to be sure...I read Triggerfish Twist previously and enjoyed this book as much. I will likely follow up with additional 'Serge Storms' novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Coco | 11/23/2013

    " I see why Dorsey wrote Triggerfish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frederick | 11/19/2013

    " This is the second Dorsey book that i've read. I guess I should have read this one first because it is the first in the series. I thought it was quite good and I plan to read more of Dorsey's books. I am definetly hooked on the Florida/crime genre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacqui | 11/11/2013

    " Absolutely HYSTERICAL, but certainly not for the faint of heart, OR for people without a twisted sense of humor and reality...I LOVED IT....still like Carl Hiaasen just a bit more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie Brock | 8/10/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathan Lang | 12/27/2012

    " Quirky and fun. Dorsey's Serge is quirky and likable. I enjoy how he weaves Serge's mythos through this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard | 11/26/2012

    " The first. Funny, but still lacks a coherent plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aspasia | 8/31/2012

    " Take the World Series, a space shuttle launch, a crooked insurance company CEO, two ordinary guys on vacation, a wannabe Satanic death metal band, Latino hitmen, and the Florida Keys and puree in a blender. Pour out the results: Florida Roadkill by Tim Dorsey and enjoy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brendan | 7/29/2012

    " this is his first book and i still think his best. not for the easily squeamish though. i've read a bunch of his books and this is the one stands out. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian | 7/17/2012

    " I wasn't crazy about this book. The main character is interesting, but you really want him to be the protagonist and he isn't. At the beginning the writing seemed kind of amateurish with a strong reliance on a thesaurus. At first this is distracting, but once you adjust to the style it's not so bad. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 7/4/2012

    " 3/12. rating 3+ quit reading "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 4/8/2012

    " It's hard to call something this crazy a traditional mystery. Tim Dorsey is growing on me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rosemary Yakubowski | 4/6/2012

    " One of the strangest books I have EVER read.It started out ok, then skipped around so much it was hard to follow. This is the 1st book I've read by this author, and I don't think I'm in a hurry to read another one anytime soon. It took me MONTHS to read this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lou | 10/18/2011

    " I can't stand the character Serge. While Dorsey's books have lots of humorous situations they are spoiled by Serge's violence. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vanessa | 8/26/2011

    " Didn't like it enough to finish it...a little too raunchy and all over the place for me "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tina Wilson | 7/6/2011

    " this book spun around in so many circles. probably will not read anymore of the series. it was an ok read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Billycongo | 6/16/2011

    " I accuse him of being overly influenced by James Patterson, and that whole small-chapter fast-moving razzmatazz! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 6/5/2011

    " It rocks. Serge Storm must have influenced Dexter Morgan in some small respect. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica | 5/21/2011

    " This book is crazy, lots of drugs and violence, not one of my favorite reads but pretty entertaining... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 5/13/2011

    " Not really for the faint of heart or if you are easily offended. If you don't mind reading about drugs, sex and murder then the irony of the story is really funny. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carolyn | 4/13/2011

    " I was looking forward to reading this, because since I am from Florida, I knew exactly where everything in the book took place. But, it was too disjointed and bounced around too much. I couldn't follow it, or figure out how it all fit together until the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sobirming | 4/12/2011

    " sorry - really really awful - all the characters could have been killed off as far as I am concerned "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 4/5/2011

    " This is the second Serge book I've read and they're entertaining and kind of messed up. It makes me uneasy about going to Florida in 3 weeks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marta | 4/3/2011

    " Fun but very violent. Liked the skewering of low lifes and cops; didn't like the lack of relatable characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 2/25/2011

    " Fun(ny), not so serious book to read at the beach. "
