Synopsis

“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.

Serge’s short attention span causes him to jump from one hilarious situation to another, with laugh-out-loud antics and witty responses. An excellent addition to the series!

Dorsey may be known as a brilliant humorist, but there is a depth to his talent that has yet to be fully explored. We get a hint of it in PINEAPPLE GRENADE. Get through the convoluted plot, and you will be more than amply rewarded.
