“If you’ve never read Dorsey, you need to start…You won’t be disappointed.”
Miami Herald

Gloriously unrepentant Florida serial killer Serge Storms is back—and he’s finagled his way into becoming a secret agent in Miami—in another outrageous crime comedy from New York Times bestselling author, Tim Dorsey. In Pineapple Grenade, the incomparable Serge takes up spying for the president of a banana republic, and now Homeland Security wants to bring him down. It’s always a wild ride when Dorsey’s at the wheel, and with Pineapple Grenade he delivers his most explosively hilarious road trip to date.

Editorial Reviews

Sun-Sentinel
“Pineapple Grenade is a topsy-turvy, slap-happy romp through Florida.”
Gainesville Times
“Pineapple Grenade displays Dorsey’s talents as a comedian, a Florida historian, a political and social commentator, and a well-seasoned writer.”
Ventura County Star
“A “guy” book, a real “man’s man” kind of novel. But kind of fun for the ladies to enjoy as well - they kind of give women an insight into the weird, wonderful way a man’s mind works when the boys are let loose with their toys.”
Richmond Times-Dispatch
“A blast… side-splitting satire.”
Oklahoma City Oklahoman
“Hilarious”
Denver Examiner
“A successful blend of high stakes thriller action a la Miami Vice with laid back beachcombing style.”
Go386.com
“Bestseller Dorsey dishes up his Miami mayhem with a side order of mordant wit … neither Dorsey’s fast-paced prose nor his delight in skewering human foolishness has lost its mischievous sparkle.”
All Good Things and More
“A rollicking ride”
Miami Herald
“Dorsey fans clamor for Serge. Dexter just can’t compete with this guy. For non-stop spy-jinks and neo-crusted cackles, head down to Miami for Tim Dorsey’s explosive Pineapple Grenade.”
Kirkus Reviews
Serge Storms (When Elves Attack, 2011, etc.) bumps it up a notch, joining a CIA operation so covert even the agency doesn't know about it. Convinced that he may be wasting his considerable talent for mayhem by confining himself to killing bad guys one at a time, Serge decides to go global. A day after their flight from Tampa somehow never gets off the ground, he and perma-buzzed pal Coleman drive to Miami and check into the Royal Poinciana, whose crumbling aqua trim appeals to Serge's sense of nostalgia. He gets himself a quick gig exporting cheap souvenirs to third-world countries. But he has his eyes on a bigger prize. He and Coleman visit the consulate of Costa Gorda and offer to spy on—well, whoever needs spying on. Security kicks them to the curb, convincing Serge that they've been hired. After a hasty visit to Mahoney, who's retired from an FBI career dedicated mainly to stalking Serge, the newly minted secret agents set off on a surveillance tour of pretty much anyone involved in the upcoming Meeting of the Americas Conference. (Serge does take time out to dispatch several carjackers in bizarre and painful ways, since someone has to keep the predators in check.) It isn't long before he attracts the attention of Lugar and Oxnart, rival CIA field supervisors, each of whom suspects that Serge is the other's secret weapon. Don't they realize that Serge belongs to no man, having dedicated himself wholly to Truth, Justice and Florida Trivia? Dorsey's 15th pits Serge against what may be the only folks as dysfunctional as he is: members of the international intelligence community.

I am a big fan of Tim Dorsey, and have followed Serge and Coleman throughout their literary journey. I was pleasantly surprised with Pineapple Grenade, it was a hint of the earlier books with so many angles and pokes at politics, it was a refreshing break from real life. This book had me laughing out loud more than once. I still find myself cheering on Serge as he makes up his crazy schemes and shopping trips to Home Depot, while he still manages to save a South American President from assassination and keep Coleman alive. The twists and turns keep coming, and I had quite the guffaw every time they made up a new threat color for the Homeland Security "thermometer" ('but it's a different shade of red!"). If you like Dorsey's other novels, you should try a Pineapple Grenade.
