After a long and arduous COVID-19 quarantine, Serge A. Storms cooks up a wild plan to celebrate: each week, he and his neighbors rent a shuttle van and head out for funky Florida road trips. Meanwhile, a CIA revenge operation down in Honduras goes very, very wrong. Forced to flee his home country, the only witness to the disaster lands in Miami with a new identity. But the CIA is still on his tail, pushing him further and further south to the Florida Keys, where he runs into Serge's convoy.
There’s an audience for Dorsey’s 26 Serge A. Storms novels, but this one is only for series fans. Coleman and the seniors are high throughout the book, and the combination of Honduras, bunnies, fake militia, and the CIA turn the story into a disorganized caper.
As usual, Dorsey’s rapid-fire prose is a perfect match for Serge’s energetic, scattershot behavior, and Serge continues to be one of contemporary fiction’s most unique characters ... Some readers might be a little bothered by Dorsey’s use of the recent pandemic in a comedic context, but most will surely enjoy seeing Serge deal with anti-maskers, toilet-paper hoarders, and the like.
Dorsey bides his time as readers wait eagerly for [Falcón and Tome's] inevitable meet-up with Serge. Their collision will be shocking but in no way surprising to seasoned fans of this zany franchise. A global health crisis is just one more day in the life of Dorsey’s resilient hero.
