Serge A. Storms is back! The one-man crime spree hits no speed bumps as he swings through Tampa, Disney World, and parts south before settling down in Miami Beach to team up with a former sidekick and launch his long-overdue offbeat travel service. It's a labor of love as Serge forces customers to confront the underbelly of the Sunshine State's past and present. Some clients get it; others run for their lives. No matter. Bullets fly, cars crash, bodies pile up, fireballs reach into the sky, local lore is recited. The tour continues. Our overachieving antihero has a full to-do list, and he multitasks during the tourist juggernaut to battle the Palermo crime family, mystery assassins, local police, the FBI, the CIA, Fidel Castro, and telemarketers. Serge is also out to solve a forty-year-old mystery involving the infamous "Murph the Surf" gem heist. Could this be what got his grandfather killed? So we jump into the time machine to meet his eccentric granddad, Sergio, who is running a small-time bookie operation in 1964 Miami Beach, a golden time and place populated by the Beatles, Cassius Clay, James Bond, Jackie Gleason, and Flipper. Back to live action! Serge and his customers have become the hunted, hopscotching through a series of famous hotel rooms. But Serge tells them not to worry. He has a master plan, which is about to unfold in all of its insane glory...on Cadillac Beach!

"Serge has gotten out of a mental hospital and started a tour guide company in Miami. George Wilson holds tightly onto the reins of this bizarre and beautiful romp through the underbelly of Florida as it reels out of control. He certainly seems to enjoy it all--from the drunken salesman found dead in a dumpster to the old codger who reminisces about fabulous times among the Hollywood stars. A craftsman supreme, Wilson lights up the characters in vivid neon, turning each into a beloved three-dimensional personality. Serge is the enraged American who no longer can contain himself. Simultaneously we are laughing at present-day society and understanding what we are losing--as we find ourselves in the company of a madman. B.H.B. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
