All just another day in Serge Storms' sun-splashed paradise!
Thanks to the growth of the Internet, America finds itself plagued by a noxious epidemic of ruthless scam artists. Where do they all come from? If you guessed 110 percent of them are spawned in Florida, you win the cigar.…
When a new digital scheme goes horribly awry - causing innocents to die and a young woman to go missing - only one person can set things right: obsessive Florida trivia buff and reluctant serial killer Serge Storms.
Aided by his perpetually addled sidekick, Coleman, and latter-day noir private eye Mahoney, Serge launches a crusade to rid his beloved state of predators and save the girl.
But Serge's mission is hampered by one pesky little detail: He's being tracked by a hit man dispatched from his murky past. And all bets are off when Serge learns the same assassin is responsible for killing the love of his life years ago. It's not long before the two begin tracking each other around Florida in a frenzied Mobius loop.
It's a dance only one can survive - it's the Tiger Shrimp Tango!

Yes the narrator adds a lot to the story
Once one gets used to Serge Storm's character from other books, this one moves fast and in very unpredictable ways . (Just like Serge).
Any of the scenes involving Serge's "experiments" and his potential escapes.
To laughter, yes, emotionally -- its not one of those touchy feely books.
This was a GREAT book to listen to while on a caribbean beach with wind and water and fresh warm air.
Serge trying to find a middle ground between the Tea Partiers' and the Occupiers, you can guess how well that works. Johnny Vegas, the Accidental Virgin has a couple of appearances, and Serge wiping out an organized group of criminal scamers in his own special way. If you are a fan of Dorsey, what more could you ask for.
Sadly. No plot here, given it is Tim Dorsey one doesn't expect a storyline like other fiction, but not one laugh here for me. Not even a wry smile. Pity.
Yes, even if a person knows nothing about the early days of Carl Hiaasen they will love this book if they have ever been to south Florida.

His voice changes are wonderful!
I did it over a two day road trip and was sad when it ended.
Oliver Wyman is excellent - as usual. This listen ranks right up with the better Dorsey books. Glaring error alert: If Serge is such an expert on Florida and all things Floridian, then how in the world did he not know what cooter was at the restaurant? .
