Overview

Determined to save a damsel in distress, the Sunshine State's favorite serial killer and encyclopedia of Florida lore Serge Storms dances a tango of death and mayhem in this funny and dementedly entertaining crime caper from Tim Dorsey, author of the New York Times bestseller The Riptide, Ultra-Glide.

Thanks to the Internet, America has become a playground for ruthless scam artists out to make an easy buck. And where do these models of entrepreneurship hail from? Why, the Sunshine State of course

No one loves Florida more, or can keep it safe from invasive criminal species better than self-appointed Sunshine Sheriff Serge Storms. When a particular scam leads to the death of a few innocents and a young woman's disappearance, Serge and his perpetually self-bent sidekick Coleman--aided by his new pal, latter-day noir private eye Mahoney--load up the car for a riotous road trip to do right. Packed with seafood, mayhem, blood, Coleman's deep thoughts, Floridian lore, and more, Tiger Shrimp Tango is a hilarious treat from the incomparable Tim Dorsey.

Bestseller Dorsey delivers another joyously funny Florida vacation with his madcap 17th adventure featuring manic serial killer and Florida trivia expert Serge Storms (after 2013's The Riptide Ultra-Glide). Serge is feeling the need to recharge his "idea reservoir for unique ways to dispatch” the deserving scalawags that make Florida the "scam capital of the nation.” Accompanied by his inveterate companion, the always stoned Coleman, and assisted by private eye Mahoney, whose patter is a terrible send-up of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer, Serge out scams the scammers. Serge bounces around the state visiting such landmarks as the home of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Legoland, and the Tupperware Museum, offering up his own commentary but never forgetting about the transgressors. Among them are dating bandits, a burglary crew, and hole-in-one insurance operators. Vengeance is delivered in outrageously inventive ways, as innocent materials (e.g., Mentos) are converted into deadly devices. Dorsey's rapid-style delivery and vicious lampoons lance varied targets such as Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, the Occupiers, and trendy restaurants, all within just a few pages. Agent: Nat Sobel, Sobel Weber. (Feb.)
