    Thank you edelweiss for this advance copy.
    Tim Dorsey can drive me nuts with his Serge and Coleman tales and this one is no different. The crazy characters, the methods of death, most bizarre, the locations. Has you double checking “do these places exist?” It seems most of them do. Serge seems to be mellowing a bit and Coleman doesn’t seem quite as dumb. More socially conscious, and historically interesting, I can’t wait to visit Florida and go visit Lake Okeechobee.

    I've consistently described Dorsey's novels as "what would happen if you put all 'Florida Man' article protagonists into one town", and his latest takes that literally to heart. This time around, the eccentric Serge and his round-the-clock stoned sidekick, Coleman, are on a tour of graveyards throughout Florida, collecting gravestone rubbings and harassing some questionable people ... whether they're trying to make seagulls explode, or taking advantage of the elderly. If you're looking for ...more

    Magnificent! A Serge & Coleman story with a concurrent additional plot line that merge into a tremendous climax. If you are a Tim Dorsey/Serge & Coleman fan you will love this one!

    I received this ARC in a Goodreads Giveaway. It is the first time I have seen a book from this author. It is part comedy, part story, and part travelogue for historical sites in Florida. Serge and Coleman are definitely unique characters. Their adventures are quite absurd and involve unique "scientific" experiments to carry out a bit of vigilante justice. The historical sites, focusing mostly on graveyards for this particular book are quite interesting.

    Tim Dorsey never disappoints! The latest installment of Serge's adventures with Coleman is a great ride. Tim Dorsey does a fantastic job of hooking the reader with the zany antics of Serge and Coleman but blends in interesting FL facts and history. This thriller/comedy/history novel is a wild ride from start to finish!

    I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. I have read several of the Serge A. Storms books and have liked them all. This was an especially good read. There is always lots of interesting historical information about Florida. Tim Dorsey never fails to entertain.
