In Clownfish Blues (A Serge Storms Book) by Tim Dorsey, Serge and Coleman are on the road in a Route 66 homage-type expedition. Their plan is to go town, taking temporary jobs at leisure, making sure they hit all of the high points including the bedding of a local that everyone knows happens during the commercial breaks. They soon notice a lottery manipulating scheme with everyone involved from small-town convenience store owners to the big guys. In keeping with their quest, it’s time to get in on the action. Clownfish Blues is the twenty-first book in the Serge Storms series.
The Riptide Ultra-Glide by Tim Dorsey is the eighteenth book in the Serge Storms series. Serge and Coleman are back and filming a reality show down the coast. Patrick and Barbara McDougall are laid off from their jobs in Wisconsin and they decide to vacation in Florida, a state that holds fond memories for Patrick as he lived there as a young child. Florida isn’t exactly as Patrick remembers. In the meantime, the pain pill market is alive and well in southern Florida and causing a bit of a bloody war. Can the ever-helpful Serge help the McDougalls stay alive long enough to get back to Wisconsin?
