Serge Storms, that loveable thermonuclear vigilante and one-stop Florida-trivia shop, has been leaving corpses strewn across the Sunshine State for more than a decade. The authorities—especially one tenacious state agent—have begun to notice the exponential body count and send a police task force to track down Serge. Could his luck finally have run out?
Meanwhile, armed with his perpetually baked sidekick, Coleman, Serge decides to blitz the state and resurrect his Internet travel-advice website—which, of course, must be the finest and the final word on trekking the Sunshine State.
To up the ante, Serge concocts a theme vacation for his cyberspace audience. And that theme? You, too, can experience Florida through the eyes of a fugitive.
Off they go blogging along a getaway route through the state's most remote bayous, back roads, and bars, where the number of cadavers begin stacking up like Serge's website hits.
Clues and questions mount:
So gas up the car, say good-bye to the relatives, and join Serge on the lam as he drives straight for the deepest bowels of Florida to unravel the final mysteries of Electric Barracuda.

Serge Storm is a Florida trivia spouting bad guy with a scientific curiosity, friends everywhere, a twisted sense of morality, and a knack for killing creativley. His friend Coleman is clueless but always there to help.
A fast moving raucous story that takes you from one end of Florida to the other with a historical tour along the way. The characters are vivid and endearing the narration is spot on.
This was my second listen of a Serge Storm book. there will be more.
but it took me a couple of months to get through. The performance was good, but the story, I found lacking.
This book was like a flashback episode of your favorite sitcom, it's fun but you'd rather watch a real episode. I was missing the wide range of characters, switching from scene to scene like in the other books.
I'm having a difficult time believing that I listened to [albeit only 15 minutes] the same book that the other reviewers wrote about. I found this book tedious and juvenile. Early Hiaasen it is not.
