Serge and Coleman are off to Hollywood! And readers are in for a treat as Serge pulls everyone along into the glitz, glamour, trivia, and general ridiculousness of all that glitters.

Things go hilariously awry for Hollywood executives when the kidnappers they hire for a scam end up being Serge and Coleman. Yes, there are blood and explosions and plenty of tabloid headlines, but there may be some in each category you might not have expected.

Really wish I was reading / listening to these in order, as I could tell little bits and pieces Serge's overall story is being built.

Oh, and if you happened to have heard Oliver Wyman's narration first for any of the other Serge stories (as I did) you'll be spoiled forever. This version was read by George K. Wilson, not bad, but definitely affected my score on how much I liked this book - Wyman's Serge definitely was more loveably (yes, loveable for a serial killer) manic.
