Serge and Coleman are traveling across Florida, following hurricanes and sheltering in historic sights, leaving a trail of mayhem and bodies. ( )

Perverse dark humor, creative use of back timing, quirky characters, lots of fun ( )
  JakeDevlin | Jun 5, 2013 |
What can I say? Tim Dorsey is great, and this is one of his best yet. Even more of a surprise ending then usual. And Molly's back.

Recommended for Tim Dorsey fans, Carl Hiassen Fans, and fans of surreal fiction. ( )

great example of darkly funny Florida outrageous comedy; Serge is always funny ( )
  MaryWJ | Dec 20, 2010 |
Serge and his semi-nemesis, Agent Mahoney, play a cat and mouse game through the press in between and during several hurricanes that pass through Florida without much of a breather. Mahoney, fresh out of psychological care resulting from his last stint of trying to catch Serge, is manipulating a rookie crime reporter's stories to entice Serge into the open.
Tim Dorsey skewers the media conglomerates responsible for the diminishment of print news, while giving Serge ever more inventive ways of killing people, which he manages to do during his search for a religion that will have him (a scene in a confessional - also involving Serge's sidekick Coleman - is a highlight).
One of Dorsey's more satisfying Serge novels due to the coherence and intertwining of the media and hurricane themes - and the usual sharp wicked humor. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060829680, Mass Market Paperback)

That lovable, under-undermedicated dispenser of truth, justice, and trivia is back with a vengeance—just as his cherished home state is about to take a beating from a conga line of hurricanes bearing down on the peninsula. But as Serge and his burnout buddy Coleman go storm-chasing, bodies begin turning up at a disturbing rate, even by Florida standards. It looks like a serial killer is on the loose—another serial killer—which highly offends Serge's moral sensibilities. And he vows he'll stop at nothing to unmask his thrill-killing rival and make All Things Right—though Coleman's triathlete approach to the sport of polyabuse binging threatens to derail the mission more completely than the entire combined Sunshine State police community could ever hope to.

"After nearly being killed by both a hired hit man and her former secretary, Agatha Raisin could use some low-key cases. So when Robert Smedley walks through the door, determined to prove that his wife is cheating, Raisin Investigations immediately offers to help. Trouble is, Agatha hates divorce cases - especially when the client is as pompous as Smedley - but she has a business to run and she's not about to turn away a paying customer. Unfortunately for Agatha, Mabel Smedley appears to be the perfect wife - young and pretty and a regular volunteer at church." "Although Smedley's case doesn't look promising, Agatha's attentions are diverted when she stumbles across the body of missing teenager Jessica Bradley. In a sudden gesture of kindness (and good public relations), Agatha offers to investigate Jessica's death free of charge."."Agatha's two biggest cases are turned upside down when Robert Smedley is poisoned. The prime suspect, his sainted wife, Mabel, immediately hires Agatha to find the real killer." "With the help of her old friend Sir Charles Fraith and some newly hired staff, Agatha Raisin sets off on another crime-solving adventure in the English Cotswolds."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
