Overview

Miami has always set the weirdness bar, but Serge Storms is back in action and ready to pole-vault over it.

First, there's the media frenzy over the "Hollow Man," a gutless corpse found on the beach. And yet people think it's perfectly normal to find dead sharks in the middle of downtown boulevards—or to spot black mushroom clouds behind the airport.

Could this be the work of Serge, that eccentric trivialista and one-man vigilante squad? And why is he extensively photographing foreign consulates right before the critically important Summit of the Americas comes to town? Does it have something to do with Serge's declaration to his ever-stoned sidekick, Coleman, that he's decided to become a spy?

The intelligence community isn't amused, and they want answers:

How did Serge and Coleman get so cozy with the president of a banana republic?

Who is the femme fatale with a heart of gold—and national pride?

Why is the congressman in favor of the latest oil spill?

When did everyone in the city forget how to drive?

So put on your favorite pink flamingo shirt, hit the dunes of South Beach, and find all the answers in . . . Pineapple Grenade!

I am a big fan of Tim Dorsey, and have followed Serge and Coleman throughout their literary journey. I was pleasantly surprised with Pineapple Grenade, it was a hint of the earlier books with so many angles and pokes at politics, it was a refreshing break from real life. This book had me laughing out loud more than once. I still find myself cheering on Serge as he makes up his crazy schemes and shopping trips to Home Depot, while he still manages to save a South American President from assassination and keep Coleman alive. The twists and turns keep coming, and I had quite the guffaw every time they made up a new threat color for the Homeland Security "thermometer" ('but it's a different shade of red!"). If you like Dorsey's other novels, you should try a Pineapple Grenade.

Stop telling yourself that. Your not, and you need help. None of this is your fault. The fault is in your parents. I promise you that it won't happen anymore very soon. I love you. They don't. (Just some sh.it)

Pineapple Grenade the latest book in the Serge Storm series, is so bad I don't know where do I begin? Much of what I am going to say has been said by others but I don't think it can be overdone. This book is awful! Serge is up to the same wandering ranting psychotic behavior only it just is not funny anymore, and the political angle is just stupid. If you think you are the next P J O'Rourke, you aren't. Not even on the same field of his last book, which should never have seen the light of day. Mr. Dorsey please for the love of God quit this series. Nothing in this latest adventure of Serge is word remembering. This book is the result of 1 of 2 things; 1. The publisher wants to milk this series for every last penny it can, or 2, Tim Dorsey like fellow Floridian Jimmy Buffett, knows that he can write anything, and his dumb loyal fan base, will think it is great. Well Mr. Dorsey I am no longer part of that fan base. This book wanders everywhere but never has a point.Tim, Living in Florida you can go one of 3 ways; you could be a white trash, redneck meth-head, racist, who liberals automatically assume is a conservative, you could be a regular guy trying to make a living, or in your case you could be a loony Liberal who has totally cashed in and realizes that the people who buy what you sell are ignorant sheep and will think you walk on water no matter what crap you sell.This is true of the above mentioned Jimmy Buffett, one of the most hypocritical, greedy, liberal people using up oxegen on the planet or your fellow Author Carl Hiaasen who stopped being interesting, or funny four books ago, and is now just another pompous liberal. Tim I thought you were better than that. I don't care about your politics, after all you live in a state tied with California for being screwed up, what I want is a good book, and this waste of paper is not it. Please stop this series!

‘Pineapple Grenade’ is another out there crazy adventure with Serge and Coleman. Mix one part Florida trivia, one part bad guy and one more crazy scheme and you’ve got a hilarious tale of epic proportions. The funny/sad part about this story is that when it comes down to the politics and politicians portrayed in it, they’re most true. If you’re looking to take a Florida vacation in your mind pick this up!
