Publisher's Summary

Serge A. Storms is back! The one-man crime spree hits no speed bumps as he swings through Tampa, Disney World, and parts south before settling down in Miami Beach to team up with a former sidekick and launch his long-overdue offbeat travel service. It's a labor of love as Serge forces customers to confront the underbelly of the Sunshine State's past and present. Some clients get it; others run for their lives. No matter. Bullets fly, cars crash, bodies pile up, fireballs reach into the sky, local lore is recited. The tour continues. Our overachieving antihero has a full to-do list, and he multitasks during the tourist juggernaut to battle the Palermo crime family, mystery assassins, local police, the FBI, the CIA, Fidel Castro, and telemarketers. Serge is also out to solve a forty-year-old mystery involving the infamous "Murph the Surf" gem heist. Could this be what got his grandfather killed? So we jump into the time machine to meet his eccentric granddad, Sergio, who is running a small-time bookie operation in 1964 Miami Beach, a golden time and place populated by the Beatles, Cassius Clay, James Bond, Jackie Gleason, and Flipper. Back to live action! Serge and his customers have become the hunted, hopscotching through a series of famous hotel rooms. But Serge tells them not to worry. He has a master plan, which is about to unfold in all of its insane glory...on Cadillac Beach!

    "You Gotta Love Serge!"

    This is a rollicking, free-wheeling, offbeat trip through Southern Florida. Your tour guide is the brilliant, charismatic, unbalanced and dangerous Serge A. Storms. In my opinion, it's worth a listen just for Serge's rants filled with non-sequiters and valid social criticism.

    The story hops through time between Serge and his grandfather Sergio. It covers a lot of Florida history and is not afraid to talk about the mistakes and corruption as well as the triumphs and native beauty of the state.

    If you don't mind constant references to drug and alcohol use, some bad language, sex, and vivid (if rather unhinged) social commentary, you'll get a kick out of this book. If any of those things bother you I'd recommend staying away because you'll be offended.

    "Fun and Practical . . . Really"

    Tim Dorsey writes the perfect commuter book. I've noticed on my way to work other drivers give me extra berth as I laugh, snort, and grimace while listening to Serge's latest adventure. I guarantee that you won't be able to keep a straight face.

    Like chaos in a blender, Serge, Lenny, and a party of willing and unwilling characters tear through Southern Florida in "Cadillac Beach." Who knew murder, mayhem, and mystery could be so fun?

    Please, please, pleaes, Audible guys, can we get more of Dorsey's books?

    "Silly, fun characters"

    Serge is an insane, charming, fun character....Hopefully audible will get more from this author! All around fun to listen to and George Wilson is a perfect reader for this set of characters

    If you like Carl Hiaasen, GET THIS ONE! Similar settings,nutty characters....

    "Shame on us, how much fun"

    Dorsey's books are a total guilty pleasure, and I am thrilled that they are FINALLY here! Serge is a great hero- psychotic, murderous, and rightous.

    "I'd forgotten how great Tim's books are."

    Entertaining from the beginning to the end. Love how Tim intertwines Florida history into his stories. Being from FL and knowing the locations makes it all the more interesting.
    Hey Audible Torpedo Juice is available in audio format, can you get it for us?

    "Great book Bad audiobook"

    Wow! I was so disappointed by the quality of this audio book. The production is horrible! You can hear the narrator swallowing after every sentence. If you like Tim Dorsey sticks with the books narrated by Oliver W. He does a great Serge, this guy not so much.

    "Terrific read/listen"

    Very well constructed. Laugh out load scenes so be careful where you are while listening. We need more characters like Sergio in this world.

    "An exquisite romp!"

    I just finished this book and can't wait to let it sit for six months and then listen again. It's funny, clever, and is the best I've read or listened to -- ever.

    "Rollicking read"

    No, it isn't 'Literature', but it's a darn good read. If you enjoy books by Carl Hiassen, Richard Brautigan, or Douglas Adams, you'll like Tim Dorsey's books, too. Improbable characters in unbelievable situations, and it all comes together at the end like a fine paella.
