Channeling his inner Easy Rider, Serge Storms saddles up for his most epic, lethal, and hilarious road trip ever as he revvs off to find the lost American dream...starting in the Florida Panhandle.
Obsessed with the iconic '60s classic Easy Rider, encyclopedic Floridaphile, lovable serial killer, and movie buff extraordinaire Serge A. Storms devises his wildest plan yet: finish the journey begun by his freewheeling heroes, Captain America and Billy, tragically cut short by some shotgun-wielding rednecks.
Setting a course for the Florida Panhandle, Captain Serge - with Coleman literally riding shotgun - mounts his classic motorcycle and hits the highway in search of the real America: the apple-pie-eating, freedom-swilling moms and pops of Main Street USA.
But the America he finds in the rural burgs dotting the neck of the peninsula is a little bit different...and a whole lot weirder than anything Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper encountered. In a state where criminal politicians are more common than gators, Serge and Coleman discover one particular speed-trap locale so aggressively inept at corruption that investigators are baffled about where to start.
Expect nothing less than madness, mayhem, ingenious homicides, and mind-altering pharmaceuticals when Serge and Coleman's path intersects with the Sunshine State's hyper-dysfunctional rusticity.
Where's Jack Nicholson when you need him?

Coconut Cowboy is Tim Dorsey's latest book. With Serge at his best yet.
Now I have to wait for the next book.
All Tim Dorsey's books are well worth the time.
i probably would have read the characters differently in the book. this was so much better then i could have imagined. i belly laughed my way with the easy riders and smiled at the end.
I enjoyed this book in a weird kind of way. Serge and Holman are completely out there and fun, but there story has nothing to do with the developing story. Then toward the end is the unexpected and dubious link. Bottom line: fun characters who live in what should be considered an alternate reality. Read it with a smile and soon forget it - probably.
This story is more about the subplot than Serge. Still an excellent listen with great FL history.
More antics by Serge next time please.
I listen in the car while i drive. I have eclectic tastes in books and if it interests me I listen till its over.
Another great Serge story. Laughed for hours while driving and even had to bring a headset into the office so I could listen there.
Not if they had not heard any of the previous efforts
All of his books. Rabid fan.
Serge of course
Any or all of Tim Dorsey's books could be a TV series.
Too many characters are missing. Johnny Vega, The G Unit, Ect.
Tim got away from South Florida. Big Mistake.
I'm waiting for the next effort. Come on Tim!
