(Publisher’s Weekly, Nov. 3)
Fasten your seatbelts: Serge A. Storms, Florida’s manic tour and history guide as well as its most inventive and prolific serial killer, cruises at warp(ed) speed through bestseller Dorsey‘s 11th thriller (after Atomic Lobster). Serge’s primary target is a tattooed thug called Jellyfish (behind his back) or Eel (to his face), whose gang rips off diamond couriers. But along the frantic way, Serge and his pal, the always-buzzed Coleman, remove a variety of societal pests, including skinheads beating a homeless man, auto repair shysters preying on tourists and bargain motels that don’t deliver on their bargains. Serge’s instruments of vengeance include garden hoses, pigs, aerosol sprays and lots of duct tape. Dorsey’s inspired insanity certaily won’t appeal to everyone, but Serge’s antics give vicarious satisfaction to those who too often see misdeeds to unpunished. In short, Serge continues to pummel convention and evildoers with exuberant abandon and wit. (Febuary 2009 laydown)
