Description

A (Serge A.) Storm is brewing for a cabal of bad guys gaming the Florida state lottery in this insanely funny novel from the maestro of mayhem, Tim Dorsey.

If you're loud and proud Floridian Serge A. Storms, how do you follow up your very own remake of Easy Rider? You shoot your own "episodes" of your favorite classic television show, Route 66!

With Coleman riding shotgun, Serge is rolling down the highway of his dreams in a vintage silver convertible Corvette just like the snazzy car Martin Milner drove. It doesn't matter that the actual Route 66 didn't pass through Florida, for Serge discovers that a dozen episodes near the series' end were filmed (really!) in his beloved home state. So for Serge and the always toked and stoked Coleman, the Sunshine State is all the road you need to get your kicks.

But their adventure traveling the byways of the Sunshine State's underbelly is about to take a detour. Someone is trying to tilt the odds in the state lottery amidst a conga line of huge jackpots spinning off more chaos than any hurricane season. With this much at stake, of course every shady character wants in. Crooked bodega owners, drug cartels laundering money through the lottery, and venture capitalists are all trying to game the system—and lining up to get their cut. They're also gambling with their lives, because when Serge and Coleman get hip to this timely (and very lucrative) trip, there's no telling whose number is up next.

Throw in Brooke Campanella, Serge's old flame, as well as the perpetually star-crossed Reevis, and it's a sure bet that the ever lucky Serge will hit it big. Winning has never been this deadly—or this much fun!

        November 28, 2016
        Serge A. Storms and his stoner buddy, Coleman, take a mayhem-filled trip through Florida in bestseller Dorsey’s wild 20th novel starring the vigilante serial killer (after 2016’s Coconut Cowboy). Serge and Coleman are moving from town to town, getting a new job each week and causing havoc wherever they go. They try worm-grunting (a method for driving earthworms to the surface) in Apalachicola and sign-spinning (holding up ads on the highway) on the Gold Coast. Meanwhile, Serge devises inspired punishments for a couple of zany reality-show nuts, a show-off in a red Porsche, and a caregiver taking advantage of his elderly patient. The funniest extended scene involves Serge and Coleman impersonating hostage negotiators while an alphabet soup of agencies try to figure them out. This entry may not rank with Dorsey’s best, but readers will find plenty of sharp cultural commentary (“The sidewalks were thick with street crazies talking to themselves, and executives with Bluetooths talking to themselves”). Eight-city author tour. Agent: Nat Sobel, Sobel Weber.
