Lovable serial killer Serge Storms is back and coming to the rescue of a Midwestern couple who aren't finding Florida quite as charming as he does in Riptide Ultra-Guide, the sixteenth installment in Tim Dorsey's bestselling series.

When newly unemployed Patrick and Barbara McDougal decide a vacation in Florida is just what they need to put life back on the right track, awful accommodations, a robbery, and a not-so-helpful police department make them rethink their decision to drown their troubles in paradise.

Luckily, charismatic (and crazy!) tour guide Serge Storms and his sidekick, Coleman, are up for another action-packed adventure in this outrageous crime thriller that Tim Dorsey fans won't soon forget.

This is the best Serge and Coleman since a long time. Everything just rolls off the pages, As usual Serge is the perfect serial killer. But you got to give him his due, he's on the side off justice, sort of. And in this book Coleman gets into his own with surprising soliloquies that seemed out of character, but only proved that he's not just a dumb pothead, sort of. Very funny. This is one of Dorsey's best.

This book should just be titled "Boring". If you've read one of the 15 previous novels in the series, you've read this one too. Originally the series was interesting, to me at least, because it dealt with community issues, mainly crime, in Florida. But he's described it all, and now it is simply too repetitive.
