Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Miami has always set the weirdness bar, but Serge Storms is back in action and ready to pole-vault over it.

First, there's the media frenzy over the "Hollow Man," a gutless corpse found on the beach. And yet people think it's perfectly normal to find dead sharks in the middle of downtown boulevards—or to spot black mushroom clouds behind the airport.

Could this be the work of Serge, that eccentric trivialista and one-man vigilante squad? And why is he extensively photographing foreign consulates right before the critically important Summit of the Americas comes to town? Does it have something to do with Serge's declaration to his ever-stoned sidekick, Coleman, that he's decided to become a spy?

The intelligence community isn't amused, and they want answers:

How did Serge and Coleman get so cozy with the president of a banana republic?

Who is the femme fatale with a heart of gold—and national pride?

Why is the congressman in favor of the latest oil spill?

When did everyone in the city forget how to drive?

So put on your favorite pink flamingo shirt, hit the dunes of South Beach, and find all the answers in . . . Pineapple Grenade!

Synopsis:

“The undisputed king of the comic crime novel.”
—Providence Journal

“I guarantee Dorsey will never win the Nobel Prize for Literature—hes far too funny.”
—Richmond Times-Dispatch

“If youve never read Dorsey, you need to start…You wont be disappointed.”
—Miami Herald

Gloriously unrepentant Florida serial killer Serge Storms is back—and hes 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. Its always a wild ride when Dorseys at the wheel, and with Pineapple Grenade he delivers his most explosively hilarious road trip to date.
