Dorsey’s novels are unfailingly entertaining: his characters are meticulously described but slightly larger than life; his dialogue is delightfully offbeat; and Serge is, hands down, the most smoothly charming, irrepressibly goofy, joyfully out-of-his-mind series lead in contemporary mystery fiction. There’s no one quite like Serge Storms, and there’s no one who writes quite like Tim Dorsey. Don’t miss this one, and be sure to catch up on the entire series, if you’re not already up to date.
Tim Dorsey has kicked off the new year by writing what may be the best of his 22 books in the Serge A. Storms series thus far ... I also am pleased to report that Dorsey continues to find plenty of the arcane, unusual, bizarre and, yes, downright useful elements of the state of Florida to stuff this intriguing, one-sit novel right up to its brim ... No Sunscreen for the Dead is more than worth its price of admission.
