Welcome to Paradise!

Freshly laid-off Wisconsinites Patrick and Barbara McDougall are going to sunny Florida for a modest romantic vacation. But the motel they picked isn’t quite a pastel paradise, and they have to be Midwesterners and make the best of a bad situation. Except bad goes to worse, and a string of misfortunes renders them unable to leave the state.

Meanwhile, the next Mexican-American War is being fought, this time in Fort Lauderdale, between the Kentucky mafia and the Oxy cartel over control of the lucrative pain clinic market. Latinos are turning up dead, hillbillies are wandering the beach trampling sand castles, and cops continue arresting doctors wriggling out of office windows.

But it’s never really a party until Serge and Coleman arrive. Cruising down US 1, Captain Florida and his perpetually altered sidekick are on a mission to film the best reality show ever!

Back at their motel, the McDougalls are peeking out the curtains. They’ve become very popular, especially with Serge, who believes he’s found the perfect stars for the pilot of his new television series. Are the McDougalls safer with Serge or should they take their chances on the mean streets? Will Coleman get tired of signing autographs? Can pelicans be used as murder weapons? Is time running out for our heroes?

And, finally, the question still on everyone’s lips: What’s up with Florida? Stay tuned for all the answers in … The Riptide Ultra-Glide!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Ray | 2/7/2014

    " This was an enjoyable book as all of Dorseys are. And it is always fun to spend some time with Serge and Coleman. But this lacked a little something that his other books have. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Dave | 2/3/2014

    " One of Dorsey's best and most humorous. Must admit a bit of bias, as there are characters from my home state of WI and adopted home state of KY. The WI characters and what they went through hit especially close to home. "
