Overview

The world's biggest beach party is about to get crashed-Serge A. Storms style-in Gator A-Go-Go, New York Times bestselling author Tim Dorsey's latest outrageously funny and supremely twisted wild ride. The creator of Nuclear Jellyfish, Triggerfish Twist, and so many more delightfully, seriously insane Serge adventures brings the Sunshine State historian and unrepentant thrill killer back for a Florida Spring Break you'll never forget. Take the Raleigh News & Observer's advice and "gobble up the Serge A. Storms stories . . . and you'll see what an overrated, humorless dullard Hannibal Lecter has always been."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Spring break, from its innocuous beginnings in 1935 to its drunken orgiastic present, provides the theme for bestseller Dorsey’s dizzy 12th adventure to feature vigilante serial killer Serge A. Storms (after Nuclear Jellyfish). When vengeful drug dealers and federal agents go after an innocent college student, Andy McKenna, who’s come to enjoy Florida’s Panama City Beach, Serge becomes Andy’s protector. Along the way, Serge delivers rough justice in inventive and bizarre fashion (death by garage door, by bridge guitar, etc.) to a mugger, a rude driver, and various others guilty of minor infractions. The reality show Girls Gone Haywire offers ample opportunities for scathing satire, as the show’s producer becomes another one of Serge’s targets. Meanwhile, Coleman, Serge’s perennially stoned companion, acts as a guru to the spring breakers. As usual, Dorsey leavens the slapstick humor with intriguing bits of Florida historical lore. (Feb.)
Kirkus Reviews
In his 12th time out, Serge A. Storms, the sociopath with a heart of gold, goes where the wild things are: Florida during Spring Break. Whenever he's off his meds, Serge is famously prone to urges. Now that he's hit mid-middle age, it suddenly seems sensible to him to join the running of the boys and girls in their annual fertility rite. This is the year Panama City Beach gets to host Spring Break's hormonal hordes, with Serge and his faithful sidekick Coleman as added headaches. Zonked-out Coleman has the kind of symbiotic relationship with Serge that assures their shared participation in nonstop brainless behavior. But hold everything-apparently there's a social scientist's side to the enterprise. "The history of Spring Breaks in Florida," intones Serge to avid student Coleman, "can be divided into three distinct epochs." And sites. In chronological order, these are: Fort Lauderdale, Daytona Beach and lucky Panama City, all three of which will serve Serge as research projects. But it's not in the man to languish professorial. Soon enough he's knee-deep in what an observant FBI agent regards as his signature predilection for "weird murders." Bad guys bite the dust bizarrely and, as always, some deserving little guys find an advocate in Serge, the manic populist. As in any Dorsey novel (Nuclear Jellyfish, 2009, etc.), the plot is irrelevant. It's all about laughs, which fans will find in satisfactory supply, though newcomers maybe not so much.
