Publisher's Summary

That's right: Serge and Coleman do spring break! It's been a long time coming, but they're at the party now - and you¹ll never look at a Frisbee the same way again. One spring break location obviously isn't enough for Serge, so he must hit them all, traveling through various historic locales, spewing nuggets of history at anyone who won't run away and dispensing his own signature brand of Sunshine State justice. Along the way, he and his sidekick, Coleman, attract a growing following of the nation's top college students and a mysterious gang that leaves a trail of young bodies in their wake.

Are the kids safer under Serge's protection? Or does being with him put them in more peril? The classroom and the pot brownies never prepared them for this.

Which raises more questions: Who's the guy studying satellite photos? Where did the protected witness go? When did Coleman get all those trophies? Why are the Feds hot on everyone's trail? How did the burnt corpse end up by the pool? What's the best way to keep beer cool on the beach?

Then there are the coke smugglers gone legit and a pair of the most dangerously sexy bartenders to ever mix a rum runner. Throw in some dirty dancing contests, illicit drugs, rockin' tunes, screamin' sports cars, bungee rides, pawned class rings, and church breakfasts, and you've got a potent concoction that keeps the hotel's concierge up all night stopping people from falling off the balconies. Want even more? Serge says, "You got it!" After years of quiet, a legendary Miami kingpin from the anything-goes '80s is suddenly back in the news, along with one of the state's most psychotic homicidal monsters, every bit as criminally insane as Serge - except without the morals. And the mysteries continue to mount....

    "My favorite Serge adventure to date!"

    I can't get enough of the fast paced humorous style of these books and I think this one has the strongest storyline. I also have to say I'm a big fan of Oliver Wyman, with his big number of different voices. It's probably not for everyone (my girlfriend's not a fan) but I absolutely love this serie!!

    "Yet another masterpiece"

    A brilliant author, a masterful narrator, and characters you have to love. Serge and Coleman are back and as good as ever.

    Story
    "Had more of a rustic feel to it."
    What did you love best about Gator A-Go-Go?

    New characters. Even though they probably won't stay in the series it's nice to see Serge making new friends.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Oh yeah. Tim can keep a story moving.


    What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Much more animated and diverse with voices.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I can't take in a book or audio book in one sitting!


    Any additional comments?

    If you don't believe the stuff Tim writes about Florida, you've never been here.

    "Spring break fantasy!!"
    What did you love best about Gator A-Go-Go?

    Coleman has come into his own!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gator A-Go-Go?

    College students chanting Coleman's name!


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

    Oh, they are all good, too hard to choose


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole thing is just too funny for words. You must read/listen for yourself

    "Out of Hiaasen, filling in with Dorsey"

    I have listened to Dorsey books with both Wilson and Wyman narrating. At first I liked the smooth consistent reading of Wilson and couldn’t understand why Recorded Books would want to mess up a good thing. After listening to Wyman’s high energy, I really appreciate the diversity and consistency of his character voices (He does some great accents).

    Like another reviewer mentioned, Surge sounds like Joe Pesci... but it works for me. I didn’t think I would like a Wyman’s readings after hearing Wilson first, but now Wilson sounds a bit lackluster, although more stable, after listening to this novel.

    The story is okay; not as good as others like Florida Roadkill. It gets real predictable near the end and wraps up too quickly for my taste. If you are a fan of Dorsey/Hiaasen then this book should be on your audible.com bucket list somewhere near the bottom.

    I like books about business, self-improvement & memoirs with the occasional fiction book thrown in, especially horror & mystery.

    "ONE WORD..."

    HORRIBLE! That could be describing the writing, the narration or the pain in my stomach after listening to this abomination. If you want Florida serial killers, stick with Dexter.

    "I Want a Refund"

    I have listened to over 200 books on Audible. There have been a few I didn't care for but this is the first time I wanted a refund. This book was horrible. It should have been called "Dumb and Dumber become Serial Killers". I had to gave it one star because it wouldn't let me give it zero.

    "Anarchic fun,"

    Dorsey has done it again. Anarchic fun, not for the prudish or faint hearted. I recommend listening to the series. It does not matter which order, they are individual stories.

    I want to go to Florida with Serge as my guide.
