Torpedo Juice, Paperback / softback Book

Torpedo Juice Paperback / softback

Part of the A Serge Storms Adventure series

Paperback / softback


The drinks are on local historian/spree killer Serge Storms, who's decided it's high time he got married.

So he's motoring down to the Florida Keys - the ultimate end of the line - in search of Ms Right . . . And finding his doped-up basket case bud Coleman along the way.

But for Serge, "getting hitched" doesn't necessarily mean "settling down" - not when South Florida is crawling with slimeballs, swindlers, unrepentant jerks, and annoying bystanders whose ranks need some serious thinning. In other words, welcome to Tim Dorsey's slice of America - where nobody gets out unscathed and untanned!What people are saying about Serge Storms:"Over-the-top, off-the-wall, too-much-is-never-enough, Florida insanity was never described so authentically and with such enthusiasm.""Humor really doesn't get better than this.

Dorsey has a style all to his own that is simply not replicated anywhere.""Serge and Coleman are a match made in heaven and I am still laughing ... truly a great read and I can't wait to delve into more of Dorsey's work.""This is Pulp Fiction on steroids with an acid tab chaser.

There is insanity on every page and every page is a good time.

Twists and turns, and some of the most creative homicidal mayhem I have ever read.""... for pure pleasure and entertainment you just can't beat the maniacal style of the Serge Storm series."Editorial reviews:"Hilarious. ... Serge Storms is, hands down, one of the most original and just-plain-captivating characters in modern crime fiction." Booklist"Entertaining ... funny ... irreverent and loving at the same time ... [Dorsey] leaves the reader gasping for breath." Washington Post Book World"The characters in Tim Dorsey's raucous novel would be shot on sight in any other state." The New York Times Book Review"Excellent ...

I almost exploded with laughter as I read Dorsey's novel.

It's manic, hysterical, and puts Dorsey well up there with the cream of comic writers who seem to have made Florida the centre for satirizing America in the 21st century." Independent"Twisted hilarity ... a compelling page-turner ... Tim Dorsey is one sick bunny." Belfast News Letter
