    • Abstract:
      Summary: Though another devastating hurricane is raking Florida, its awesome power can't stop the Sunshine State's most loyal son, Serge A. Storms, from his latest scenic road trip: a cemetery tour. With his best bro Colman riding shotgun, Serge hits the highway in his '69 gold Plymouth Satellite, putting pedal to the metal on a grand tour of the past. Beginning in Key West, the sunshine boys' odyssey includes a forgotten mass grave in Palm Beach county holding the remains of African Americans killed by the Great Hurricane of 1928, and the resting place of one world-famous television dolphin (RIP Flipper) from the 1960s. But one deadland--a haunted old sugar field--holds more than just the bones of those who've passed. For years, local children have whispered about a boogeyman hiding among the stalks. Could it be the same maniac known as Naked Florida man who's been raising hell all over the place? There are few things Serge loves more than solving a good mystery and bestowing justice on miscreants who sully his beloved home's good name. With his partner bong boy, Florida's psycho superhero will find the truth in this hilariously violent delight--packed with history, lore, and plenty of motel antics--from the insanely ingenious Tim Dorsey.-- Publisher's description.

As a hurricane wreaks havoc upon Florida, the never-more-aptly-named Serge A. Storms, Florida's most avid history buff (not to mention its most cheerful serial killer) is determined to finish his latest foray into the state's past: a tour of Florida's most notable cemeteries. Along the way, he rights wrongs in his own violently clever fashion and investigates a legendary story of a local bogeyman. Readers who have not yet met Mr. Storms are in for a real treat: he's one of contemporary fiction's most entertaining and idiosyncratic creations, a killer who believes he's only doing what's right, an amateur historian who gets almost unendurably thrilled about the tiniest historical fact concerning the state he loves. Dorsey, a former newspaperman, writes economically; the dialogue is sparse and frequently hilarious, and the narrative passages are as descriptive as they need to be but not a syllable more. A fine entry in this consistently strong series. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Bestseller Dorsey's outstanding 23rd Serge Storms novel (after 2019's No Sunscreen for the Dead) finds Serge, a serial killer with a warped moral streak, and his stoner buddy, Coleman, on a tour of Florida, visiting cemeteries around the state so that Serge can make rubbings of the tombstones of celebrities, including Mitzi, the dolphin who starred as Flipper in the 1960s TV series. Along the way, Serge indulges his desire to harm wrongdoers who are beyond the law's reach by targeting a man who encourages animal cruelty and another who rips off impoverished elderly people. Dorsey builds suspense with a number of cryptic subplots, notably one set in 1928 centered on the discovery of three murder victims in the aftermath of a hurricane. Another one concerns a girl, desperate to join her high school football team, who's found a hidden cache of rare coins. Dorsey keeps readers guessing about whether the disparate plot strands will connect. Serge's sadistic methods aren't for all tastes, but readers with an appetite for gallows humor will be sated.
