Tim Dorsey is back with his gloriously unrepentant Florida serial killer, Serge Storms, in Pineapple Grenade: A Novel. A hollow corpse, shark carcasses lying in busy intersections, touchy grenade launchers, superhero capes, among many other things set the tone in this latest laugh-riot thriller. Serge has finagled his way into becoming a secret agent in Miami, spying for the president of a banana republic. Will Serge still have time for a cocktail before Homeland Security brings him down?
Dorsey was a reporter and editor for the Tampa Tribune from 1987 to 1999, and is the author of 15 novels, including Electric Barracuda, Nuclear Jellyfish, Atomic Lobster, and Hurricane Punch. He lives in Tampa, Florida.
