Serge A. Storms embarks on a tour to meet his long-lost relatives in this latest madcap entry in the bestselling series from Florida's "compulsively irreverent and shockingly funny" (Boston Globe) Tim Dorsey. Devoted Floridaphile Serge Storms is a lover of history, so he's decided to investigate his own using one of those DNA services from late-night TV. Excited to construct a family tree, he and Coleman hit the road to meet his kin. Along the way, he plans to introduce Coleman to the Sunshine State's beautiful parks where he can brush up on his flora, fauna, and wildlife, and more importantly, collect the missing stamps for his park passport book. But as the old saying goes, the apple doesn't fall far . . .  Serge is thrilled to discover he may be related to a notorious serial killer who's terrorized the state for twenty years and never been caught. Which one of his newfound relatives will be the one to help him hunt down this deranged maniac? Serge doesn't know that a dogged investigator from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is also hot on the trail. Then Serge meets a park ranger who's also longing to make a family re-connection. But all is not as it appears on the surface, and Serge's newfound friendship in the mysterious swamps of Florida may lead to deadly results. Finding his own relatives has made Serge understand the importance of family. Of course he'll do anything to help . . . … (més)

Mr. Dorsey is an autobuy author for me.

What more can be said about this author that hasn't been said. He's a genius when it comes to sucking you in with multiple story lines and so many characters your head spins. Yet you end up liking every character in this book. It might be because their funny, a pain in the butt, or just plain goofy. There isn't a book that he's written that I haven't caught myself laughing out loud and even when I put the book down, I bust out laughing because something that was said or done.

His stories remind me of a race around Florida. Everyone is trying to get to the same spot but takes a different route. A lot of times, they run into each other and take drastic measures to divert the other person from the end goal. Then there's Serge (just typing his name and I'm laughing.) Every time he gets in his car with his stoned shadow Coleman, it becomes a superhero, killing, adventure and he always has time to take a quick picture of a landmark or to preach history. When it's time to end the race he's first to cross the finish line.

The only bad thing I have to say about this series and I've read them all, is that Mr. Dorsey can't write them fast enough :) ( )

As usual, Tim Dorsey checks all his regular blocks: obscure Florida facts, Serge kills a few people, all tied up in a logical plot. It does appear that Dorsey is pulling back from Serge and his unique ways of killing low lifes and is instead inserting Florida Man news items throughout. Still, I got what I came for and a tip of the hat to Dorsey that can still write an interesting read 24 times using the same tropes. ( )
