A funny book that reminded me a lot of the Dortmunder novels by Donald Westlake. Set in Tampa in a grid street neighborhood where an unscrupulous landlord has the most obnoxious renters possible in his houses in order to try to buy up all the property int he neighborhood. Ends with a great 4th of July party. ( )

Certainly not my favorite of the series, but anytime you put Serge and Coleman together you can expect some surprising hi jinx. The commencement speech is amazing! ( )

Although 4th in the series, this book takes place before all the others. It gives at the background to one of the main relationships in the series between the main character, Serge Storms, Florida's loveable serial killer and Jim Davenport, the world's nicest guy who never seems to get a break.
There are a lot of characters to keep up with in the book, but somehow, without a character map Dorsey manages to keep it entertaining. It's always a fun novel and laugh out loud funny. Because of all the mental illness in the book you can never imagine what is going to happen next, how the plot is going to turn or even what the plot is. However, it always circles back in the end with the characters interacting, a mystery thrown in and the bad guys getting it. I love this series and always look forward to my next read. ( )

Book description
Ensconced in a lovely tropical villa on idyllic Triggerfish Lane, Jim Davenport anticipates the good life to come. But this isn't living -- it's Florida, and the neighborhood is not quite what it seems. It's got overly aggressive Little League parents, drug-free Rastafarians, homicidal hookers, unnatural sex and casual violence. Oh, yes, and there's a psychopathic serial killer-cum-Sunshine-State folklorist named Serge A. Storms living directly across the street. So it's only a matter of time before Jim up and actually kills somebody...
