That's right: Serge and Coleman do spring break!

It's been a long time coming, but they're at the party now—and you'll never look at a Frisbee the same way again.

One spring break location obviously isn't enough for Serge, so he must hit them all, traveling through various historic locales, spewing nuggets of history at anyone who won't run away and dispensing his own signature brand of Sunshine State justice.

Along the way he and his sidekick, Coleman, attract a growing following of the nation's top college students . . . and a mysterious gang that leaves a trail of young bodies in their wake.

Are the kids safer under Serge's protection? Or does being with him put them in more peril? The classroom and the pot brownies never prepared them for this.

Which raises more questions: Who's the guy studying satellite photos? Where did the protected witness go? When did Coleman get all those trophies? Why are the Feds hot on everyone's trail? How did the burnt corpse end up by the pool? What's the best way to keep beer cool on the beach?

Then there are the coke smugglers gone legit and a pair of the most dangerously sexy bartenders to ever mix a rum runner. Throw in some dirty dancing contests, illicit drugs, rockin' tunes, screamin' sports cars, bungee rides, pawned class rings, and church breakfasts, and you've got a potent concoction that keeps the hotel's concierge up all night stopping people from falling off the balconies.

Want even more? Serge says, "You got it!"

After years of quiet, a legendary Miami kingpin from the anything-goes eighties is suddenly back in the news . . . along with one of the state's most psychotic homicidal monsters, every bit as criminally insane as Serge—except without the morals.

The mysteries continue to mount: How did Coleman end up with even more disciples than Serge? Can kids successfully climb fences while carrying pizzas? Will Serge survive the carnage, armed with a GPS and a kiddie pool?

All will soon be answered—and of course every last moment is caught on tape as Serge creates his most excellent documentary ever, the making of Gator A-Go-Go.

Pack the cooler, load the car, and head to where the water is warm for a spring vacation you won't soon forget—no matter how much you might try!

    St. Petersburg Times

  • “Another hilarious romp in Dorsey’s unique style.”

    Associated Press

  • “Inventive and bizarre…As usual, Dorsey leavens the slapstick humor with intriguing bits of Florida historical lore.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “All of Dorsey’s books offer belly laughs, but this one seems a cut above.”

    Booklist

  • “As in any Dorsey novel, the plot is irrelevant. It’s all about laughs, which fans will find in satisfactory supply.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy Garcia | 2/6/2014

    " Everything Tim touches is filled with the kind of clever humor that you could only find in an insane asylum full of the greatest comedic characters of modern history...on Mars...while drinking...a lot...seriously. "

    " Well writen book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yeva | 1/28/2014

    " I love Tim Dorsey's books. Coleman is that guy, Randy something or other, who sat behind me in high school. The guy was always wasted and planning to be even more so as soon as school was over for the day. Every time I read about Coleman, I see Randy. Oh the 70s were fun. Serge is such a throw-back to those times. He reminds me of a skinny kid who wanted to change the waters of Moonlight Bay to bright blue. He poured some chemical in the water, and it did clear up about a 10' diameter spot. Onward through the fog with Dorsey. "

    " Amazing, which is Dorsey's baseline. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 9/14/2013

    " Found this in the bargain bin and happy I bought it. A fun and quick read, captures the off beat characters of Florida with a likeable, if not cringe-worthy killer. If you like Hiaasen or Leonard, you should like Dorsey. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dan | 8/9/2013

    " Hated it. Was hoping for Carl Hiassen but got a Hiassen wannabe. It was like reading the screenplay from Girls Gone Bad. I never made it past page 85. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frank | 2/4/2013

    " All of the comparisons of Dorsey to Hiaasen and Barry are good ones, only Dorsey, I feel, has a few more screws loose. The books chronicling the adventures of Serge Storms are some of the craziest/funniest works of fiction put out in the past 15 years. This was no exception. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dugger | 11/18/2012

    " Still zany as ever, Serge and Coleman. This was the rare book where you get to see Serge has a heart and is trying to do the right thing- for once. I think that threw me off a bit. "

    " I could not stop laughing. Tim Dorsey has captured the real FL with this series and anyone who is looking for a tour guide of the sun shine state needs to read this. You won't be sorry. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy | 12/21/2010

    " Light, gonzo, hilarious, psyhcotic, and never a let down. Another great entry by Dorsey into the chronicles of one Serge A. Storms. If you've not read Dorsey before, do yourself a favor and read him already, you will literally 'laugh out loud' while reading any one of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 12/10/2010

    " Love this series...LOVE SERGE A STORMS! "

    " The only person that can make me simultaneously homesick for Florida and relieved to get out, Serge Storms continues to teach me valuable history lessons as he visits (and horrifically murders people in) small Florida backwaters that I previously thought I was the only one to have visited. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 10/17/2010

    " another good one by dorsey. i really enjoyed how coleman wasn't as stupid in this one because a lot of the book centered on his specialty (partying) because this one happened over spring break. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick | 9/9/2010

    " Mr. Dorsey makes me laugh. I can't ask for anything more engrossing than a book that makes me smile.
