A (Serge A.) storm is brewing for a cabal of bad guys gaming the Florida state lottery in this insanely funny novel from the maestro of mayhem, Tim Dorsey.
If you're loud and proud Floridian Serge A. Storms, how do you follow up your very own remake of Easy Rider? You shoot your own "episodes" of your favorite classic television show, Route 66!
With Coleman riding shotgun, Serge is rolling down the highway of his dreams in a vintage silver convertible Corvette, just like the snazzy car Martin Milner drove. It doesn't matter that the actual Route 66 didn't pass through Florida, for Serge discovers that a dozen episodes near the series' end were filmed (really!) in his beloved home state. So for Serge and the always toked and stoked Coleman, the Sunshine State is all the road you need to get your kicks.
But their adventure traveling the byways of the Sunshine State's underbelly is about to take a detour. Someone is trying to tilt the odds in the state lottery amid a conga line of huge jackpots, spinning off more chaos than any hurricane season. With this much at stake, of course every shady character wants in. Crooked bodega owners, drug cartels laundering money through the lottery, and venture capitalists are all trying to game the system - and lining up to get their cut. They're also gambling with their lives, because when Serge and Coleman get hip to this timely (and very lucrative) trip, there's no telling whose number is up next.
Throw in Brooke Campanella, Serge's old flame, as well as the perpetually star-crossed Reevis, and it's a sure bet that the ever-lucky Serge will hit it big. Winning has never been this deadly - or this much fun!

I LOVE this series! Serge is always hilarious and this book brings back characters from previous books which was fantastic! As usual, I can't say enough about the narration. Oliver Wyman's narration is absolutely brilliant. His character voices are perfect in their consistency and delivery. He brings the characters to life and the story between the dialogue is delivered in such a manner that makes the book even funnier (which is a feat in itself).
As usual, crazy, nutty, insane fun in the land of sunshine. Serge and Coleman are out and about and things get way whacky! A fun ride.
Oh Mr Dorsey, you've done it again. A another must listen for fans of Serge's adventures. Oliver Wyman does another great job with all the voices. I will admit that I will have to re listen to "catch" all of the clever references and to clarify, (if possible), a few of the points, but that's no different than any of the previous volumes. New listeners should start at the beginning of the series and work thru the adventures.
Sometimes authors fade away as a long series goes on.. but not Tim Dorsey! This may be the best book yet!
Say something about yourself!
Oddly Hysterically Funny
Too many to name!
I laughed and laughed. I'm usually not into really humorous books, but Clownfish Blues was an exception. Love this book. Will definitely read more by the author Tim Dorsey!!!!
