Serge Storms Series, Book 18

Bottom-feeders beware: the Sunshine State's favorite psychotic killer and lovable Floridaphile, Serge Storms, has found a new calling, legal eagle, and he's going to make a killing as a crusading attorney—and star as a dashing lawyer on the big screen—in this madcap escapade from insanely funny New York Times bestselling author Tim Dorsey

When it comes to swimming with the sharks, there is no bigger kahuna than Serge Storms. Bingeing on a marathon of legal movies set in Florida, Serge finds his vocation: the law. Never mind law school or that degree; Serge becomes a freelance fixer—wildcat paralegal and pilgrim to the hallowed places where legal classics of the big screen such as Body Heat, Cool Hand Luke, and Absence of Malice were filmed practically in his own backyard.

One of Serge's old flames, young lawyer Brook Campanella, is also a rising star thanks to her expertise in the field of foreclosure law. Ruthless at taking down the greedy banksters kicking people out of their homes, she lands a major class-action lawsuit and looks set to win big. The opposition is determined to shut her down, and they'll go to extreme lengths to do it.

Luckily for her, Serge likes nothing better than saving a damsel in distress, especially when it means kicking a bunch of shyster butt. The mayhem comes to a hilarious head at the Key West courthouse at the height of the island's raucous Fantasy Fest street carnival, and no one, including Serge, will ever be the same.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Hold on to your sunscreen and shades--Florida's own Serge A. Storms is back, and so is his versatile narrator, Oliver Wyman. This time the likable sometimes-serial-killer (when he goes off his meds) has recast himself as a freelance paralegal--with no training other than rewatching legal classics of the big screen that were filmed in the Sunshine State. A full-cast production isn't necessary with Wyman at the helm. His portrayals of a crew of plucky senior women sound as authentic as his take on the smooth jive of gumshoe Mahoney. Whether it's the unfocused diction of a drug addict or the speedy chatter of the highly caffeinated, Wyman is seamless in his delivery as he highlights subtle nuances in each character. Dorsey's series is known for its wacky humor, and Wyman delivers it with verve. J.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine

    Starred review from January 19, 2015
    Florida serial killer Serge A. Storms is still going strong, as shown by bestseller Dorsey's 18th entry in this brilliantly funny series (after 2014's Tiger Shrimp Tango). Accompanied by stoner friend Coleman, Stoner rockets around the state reveling in little known tidbits of Florida history, uncovering scams both blatantly obvious and stunningly subtle, and meting out inventive and inspired punishments to evil-doers. All of this is done with a razor sharp wit that skewers human foibles and follies illustrated by instantly recognizable character types. Big banks are engaging in mortgage fraud ("Florida has the highest foreclosure rate in the nation"), but the main human interest is with Brook Campanella, a newly minted lawyer and a former girlfriend of Serge's. Brook wages a losing war in the courtroom against powerful Consolidated Financial, until Serge appoints himself attorney for the plaintiff and makes a memorable courtroom appearance. Consolidated fights dirty, but that's Serge's specialty, and though the end result is obvious, the path Serge takes is not. Author tour. Agent: Nat Sobel, Sobel Weber.
