Publisher's Summary

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:

  • Who are all the women being photographed naked in the swamp?
  • What made Coleman draw on his face with magic markers?
  • Where is the cruise-to-nowhere taking its drunk prisoners?
  • When was the last time a Civil War reenactment involved a sports car?
< p>But Serge also has some personal business to tidy up. His grandfather's old Miami Beach gang suddenly had their life savings wiped out, and there's a good bet it was no accident. Too much action for Serge to juggle? Not when it all dovetails nicely into his Secret Master Plan. And especially if it involves Serge's favorite new obsession: tracking Al Capone's little-known escapades in the Everglades.

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.

    "I tried to like this.."

    but it took me a couple of months to get through. The performance was good, but the story, I found lacking.

    "My least favorite Serge Adventure."

    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.

    "stupifyingly silly"

    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.
