Description

"The undisputed king of the comic crime novel." --Providence Journal

"I guarantee Dorsey will never win the Nobel Prize for Literature--he's far too funny." --Richmond Times-Dispatch

"If you've never read Dorsey, you need to start...You won't be disappointed." --Miami Herald

Gloriously unrepentant Florida serial killer Serge Storms is back--and he's finagled his way into becoming a secret agent in Miami--in another outrageous crime comedy from New York Times bestselling author, Tim Dorsey. In Pineapple Grenade, the incomparable Serge takes up spying for the president of a banana republic, and now Homeland Security wants to bring him down. It's always a wild ride when Dorsey's at the wheel, and with Pineapple Grenade he delivers his most explosively hilarious road trip to date.

A magnet for hurricanes, boat people, and geezer snowbirds in pastels, Miami does crazy better than anywhere, whether it's the media feeding frenzy over the "Hollow Man," a gutless corpse found on the beach, or the giant shark carcasses stuffed with some other human's limbs jamming up busy intersections.

But Florida trivialista and one-man vigilante Serge Storms has bigger fish than dead stuffed sharks to fry. He wants to be a spy—and what better way to demonstrate his wares than by taking surveillance photos of foreign consulates as Miami plays host to the Meeting of the Americas Conference! His best bud Coleman isn't sure about this James Bond stuff. But then Coleman is too stoned to be sure about much, including Serge's all-new Secret Master Plan. Could it involve the CIA spying on itself from the very place it launched Operation Mongoose to overthrow Castro? One thing is certain: neither Homeland Security nor the company is amused when newly caped crusaders Serge and Coleman start taking out would-be political assassins targeting a banana republic president.

A tinpot dictator and the Hollow Man aren't the only pollution threatening Florida's shores. There's a mysterious Mafioso selling grenade launchers, Gulf Spill oil, and a new shade of scary in the terror warning colorwheel. So many messes what's a concerned citizen-psychopath like Serge to do? No doubt, the fruit will fly when he pulls the pin out of this Pineapple Grenade!
