Bestseller Dorsey dishes up his Miami mayhem with a side order of mordant wit neither Dorsey s fast-paced prose nor his delight in skewering human foolishness has lost its mischievous sparkle. --Go386.com"

Back cover copy

Miami has always set the weirdness bar, but Serge Storms is back in action and ready to pole-vault over it.

First, there's the media frenzy over the "Hollow Man," a gutless corpse found on the beach. And yet people think it's perfectly normal to find dead sharks in the middle of downtown boulevards--or to spot black mushroom clouds behind the airport.

Could this be the work of Serge, that eccentric trivialista and one-man vigilante squad? And why is he extensively photographing foreign consulates right before the critically important Summit of the Americas comes to town? Does it have something to do with Serge's declaration to his ever-stoned sidekick, Coleman, that he's decided to become a spy?

The intelligence community isn't amused, and they want answers:

How did Serge and Coleman get so cozy with the president of a banana republic?

Who is the femme fatale with a heart of gold--and national pride?

Why is the congressman in favor of the latest oil spill?

When did everyone in the city forget how to drive?

So put on your favorite pink flamingo shirt, hit the dunes of South Beach, and find all the answers in . . . Pineapple Grenade!
