    Welcome to another typical summer in Florida, the season of the storms. Serge Storms. That loveable serial killer, an under-under-medicated dispenser of truth, justice, and trivia, is back with a vengeance. And not a weirdness-laced moment too soon. His cherished home state is about to take a beating, and from far more than the way-too-routine conga line of hurricanes bearing down on the peninsula. Corpses have begun turning up at a disturbing rate, even for Florida.

    Steven says: "Love the Series Do not like the new reader"
    "Can't get enough Serge"
    Overall

    As long and Coleman and Serge keep on rolling, I'll be happy to keep reading. Love the irreverence and absolute irony of an insane man with a mission.

    This is a darkly hilarious coming-of-age novel and a richly plotted suspense tale told through the distinctive voice of its heroine, Blue van Meer. After a childhood spent moving from one academic outpost to another with her father, Blue is clever and possessed of a vast lexicon of knowledge. But when a drowning and the shocking death of a teacher lead to a confluence of mysteries, Blue is left to make sense of it all with only her gimlet-eyed instincts and cultural references to guide - or misguide - her.

    Overall

    I really tried with this book: twice in fact. It may be the narration (more like dictation), or maybe I'm too old, but the plot seemed contrived and plain. I was wondering if there was a point to all the cross-references (imagery?) and arrogance of the main character. It has a smartest kid in the class overtone that wears with each hour. I’ll have to put it aside and try some other time.
