Editorial Reviews


“You gotta love an author who knows how to deliver humor and wit along with a riveting mystery that keeps you from putting the book down until the very end. An author who has never let the book lover down.” (Suspense Magazine)

“Dorsey’s satiric skewering spares nothing and no one in this riotous farce that’s almost too much fun to call reading.” (Providence Journal)

“Breathtaking and very cleverly written.... The narrative rocks and the story rolls.” (Criminal Element)

“[Serge and Coleman’s] wildest and funniest ride yet, resulting in plenty of sex, drugs, violence, and lottery winnings.” (

“Iconic.... [Dorsey’s] legion of fanatic fans will howl with love as Serge gaslights the law and sets the record straight.” (Florida Times-Union)

“…fans of wacky crime fiction will have plenty of fun.” (Publishers Weekly)

“If you’re looking to shake off the winter doldrums with a solid, laugh-a-page read with some innovative mayhem applied to deserving parties, this is the novel you want and need.” (

From the Back Cover

No one worships the Sunshine State as much as Serge. He and his permanently baked sidekick, Coleman, are on the road again. This time they’re on a frenzied literary pilgrimage that leads them back to Riviera Beach, the cozy seaside town where the boys spent their formative years.

Growing up, Serge was enthralled by the legend of Riviera Beach, aka Darby Pope, a welder at the port who surfed the local waves long before the hot spots were hot. A god on the water, the bighearted surfer was a friend to everyone and had a generosity of spirit that earned him the admiration of all. Meanwhile, a much murkier legend made the rounds of the schoolyards of Serge’s youth—that of the crazy hermit living in a makeshift jungle compound farther up the mysterious Loxahatchee River than anyone dared to venture.

Then Serge moved away. But he never forgot. Now he’s back in town, with those legends looming larger than ever in the rearview mirror of his memory. As Serge digs into the past, he unintentionally disturbs some long-forgotten ground, attracting the attention of a cast of villains that only Florida could produce. And as the body count grows, so does the list of questions.

When do you hack a motel air conditioner?

How does Coleman get high with cat toys?

And will book tours ever be the same after Serge decides to check one out?
