All just another day in Serge Storms's sun-splashed paradise!
Thanks to the growth of the Internet, America finds itself plagued by a noxious epidemic of ruthless scam artists. Where do they all come from? If you guessed 110 percent of them are spawned in Florida, you win the cigar. . . .
When a new digital scheme goes horribly awry— causing innocents to die and a young woman to go missing—only one person can set things right: obsessive Florida trivia buff and reluctant serial killer Serge Storms.
Aided by his perpetually addled sidekick, Coleman, and latter-day noir private eye Mahoney, Serge launches a crusade to rid his beloved state of predators and save the girl.
But Serge's mission is hampered by one pesky little detail: he's being tracked by a hit man dis-patched from his murky past. And all bets are off when Serge learns the same assassin is responsible for killing the love of his life years ago. It's not long before the two begin tracking each other around Florida in a frenzied Möbius loop.
It's a dance only one can survive—it's the Tiger Shrimp Tango!
Bestseller Dorsey delivers another joyously funny Florida vacation with his madcap 17th adventure featuring manic serial killer and Florida trivia expert Serge Storms (after 2013's The Riptide Ultra-Glide). Serge is feeling the need to recharge his "idea reservoir for unique ways to dispatch the deserving scalawags that make Florida the "scam capital of the nation. Accompanied by his inveterate companion, the always stoned Coleman, and assisted by private eye Mahoney, whose patter is a terrible send-up of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer, Serge out scams the scammers. Serge bounces around the state visiting such landmarks as the home of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Legoland, and the Tupperware Museum, offering up his own commentary but never forgetting about the transgressors. Among them are dating bandits, a burglary crew, and hole-in-one insurance operators. Vengeance is delivered in outrageously inventive ways, as innocent materials (e.g., Mentos) are converted into deadly devices. Dorsey's rapid-style delivery and vicious lampoons lance varied targets such as Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, the Occupiers, and trendy restaurants, all within just a few pages.
