Internationally best-selling author Tim Dorsey's irreverent novels starring evil genius Serge A. Storms-lovable psychiatric hospital escapee-zoom along at breakneck speed, delivering laughs and shocks in droves. In Torpedo Juice Serge heads for the Florida Keys where, curiously enough, he isn't the saltiest nut in the jar. Serge has two missions-re-invent himself and get married, although he hasn't picked the lucky lady yet. What he doesn't know is that enough serial and spree killers are headed his way to have a parade of psychopaths. Do the Keys have room for all the lunatics?

the book is probably fun, this narrator is not
This narrator is really dry. No wit. No character identification. Really boring and dry.
I received this book as a gift in June, finally read it this week, and have come to the realization that Dorsey is the greatest. In Salt Lake on business, ended up buying "Hammerhead Ranch Motel and "Stingray Shuffle" because of this book. Serge is my new favorite character....by a mile. Tim, all your books will be on my shelf by the end of this month..
I've read all of Tim Dorsey's books but thought it would be fun to hear one on a long road trip so I downloaded Torpedo Juice. Unfortunately, I had to turn off the recording after about 45 minutes because that was as long as I could take the monotone reading with no apparent punctuation. I don't think one could choose a more flat reading for books written with such frenetic story lines. Great book. Bad recording.
