Description


Miami sets the weirdness bar, and 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 aren't dazed to find dead sharks in downtown boulevards. Could this be the work of Serge? And why is he photographing foreign consulates right before a critical summit comes to town? Is it because Serge wants to become a spy? He senses that something big is about to go down in Miami that might involve a recently reactivated CIA cell.

The intelligence community isn't amused and wants answers. How did Serge and his sidekick, Coleman, get cozy with the president of a banana republic? And when did everyone in the city forget how to drive? Meanwhile, a mysterious man is shipping military arms, causing Homeland Security to take measures. The chaos escalates as Serge hurtles everyone toward a fateful climax, destined for the summit jamboree on Biscayne Bay.

Put on your favorite pink flamingo shirt and find all the answers in . . . Pineapple Grenade!

Praise For…


“Dorsey fans clamor for Serge. Dexter just can’t compete with this guy. For non-stop spy-jinks and neo-crusted cackles, head down to Miami for Tim Dorsey’s explosive Pineapple Grenade.”
-Miami Herald

“Pineapple Grenade is a topsy-turvy, slap-happy romp through Florida.”
-Sun-Sentinel

“Pineapple Grenade displays Dorsey’s talents as a comedian, a Florida historian, a political and social commentator, and a well-seasoned writer.”
-Gainesville Times

“A “guy” book, a real “man’s man” kind of novel. But kind of fun for the ladies to enjoy as well - they kind of give women an insight into the weird, wonderful way a man’s mind works when the boys are let loose with their toys.”
-Ventura County Star

“A blast… side-splitting satire.”
-Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Bestseller Dorsey dishes up his Miami mayhem with a side order of mordant wit … neither Dorsey’s fast-paced prose nor his delight in skewering human foolishness has lost its mischievous sparkle.”
-Publishers Weekly

“Hilarious”
-Oklahoma City Oklahoman

“A successful blend of high stakes thriller action a la Miami Vice with laid back beachcombing style.”
-Denver Examiner

“Up a notch … Dorsey’s 15th pits Serge against what may be the only folks as dysfunctional as he is: members of the international intelligence community.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“Bestseller Dorsey dishes up his Miami mayhem with a side order of mordant wit … neither Dorsey’s fast-paced prose nor his delight in skewering human foolishness has lost its mischievous sparkle.”
