Serge Storms, that lovable 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. And in the middle of all his make believe close brushes, Serge finally wises up to his pursuers and realizes that the manic gumball rally is genuinely on "in the tradition of the great American chase movie." 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? 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. -- From publisher.… (mais)

Amazingly hilarious and thrilling. It was a fabulous mystery and comedy. ( )

This was a great chase novel. The action never let up and the characters were quirky and well drawn. The whole chase is set in Florida and comprises an internet blog of a fugitive travelogue. Traveling through backwaters and small towns the fugitives race all over Florida evading local law enforcement, a red head in a turquoise T-Bird, a mystery man in a yellow Cadillac, a corrupt attorney in a black Beemer and a Crown Vic driving gumshoe with a vocabulary straight out of a Humphrey Bogart movie.

This is not a great literary masterpiece. It is quintessentially American embracing the idea of the road trip. There is violence but it is darkly humorous and clever as opposed to savage and bloody. The two main characters Serge and Coleman are a classically comedic pair.

Pick this one up if you need a lift in mood and want to be entertained. It's a 1 to 2 day read for the quick reader. ( )

This is Tim Dorsey's 13th book starring the ever practical yet psycho Florida fugitive, Serge Storms. This time Serge takes on us on a fun and frolicking "fugitive tour" of Florida. He keeps a blog and of course he has his faithful, yet stoned sidekick Coleman by his side every step of the way.

Serge is, as usual, being hunted by Federal agents, a bounty hunter, a whole caravan of characters, and his ex-wife in a Turquoise colored T-bird. We take a trip throughout the sunshine state to see the back streets and "under belly" of Florida including The Everglades, Orlando, Venice, Myakka River, Tampa, and so on.

Besides the "fugitive tour", Serge has a mission this time to help his Grandfather's old gang on the Loop Road to recover funds stolen by a shady lawyer. Will Serge complete his mission? Will the trackers catch up to him this time? Will Agent Mahoney, his nemesis, track him down? Go get this fun, laugh out loud, comedy and found out for yourself.

I can't help but wonder who would play Serge and Coleman in a movie? Or Agent Mahoney? I think it would a great movie!

Tim Dorsey is an ex-writer for the Tampa Tribune. Electric Barracuda was published in 2011 by William Morrow. ( )
