Sintesi dell'editore

From Florida's "compulsively irreverent and shockingly funny" (Boston Globe) king of mayhem, the New York Times best-selling author Tim Dorsey, comes a diabolically madcap adventure featuring the indomitable Serge A. Storms.

No one worships the Sunshine State as much as Serge A. Storms. Perpetually hunting Floridian arcana and lore, he and his permanently baked sidekick, Coleman, are on the road again. This time they're on a frenzied literary pilgrimage that leads them back to Riviera Beach, the cozy seaside town where the boys spent their formative years.

Growing up, Serge was enthralled by the Legend of Riviera Beach, aka Darby, a welder at the port who surfed the local waves long before the hot spots were hot. A god on the water, the big-hearted surfer was a friend to everyone - the younger surfers, cops, politicians, wealthy businessmen, and ordinary Joes - a generosity of spirit that earned him the admiration of all. Meanwhile, there was a much murkier legend that made the rounds of the schoolyards from Serge's youth - that of the crazy hermit living in a makeshift jungle compound farther up the mysterious Loxahatchee River than anyone dared to venture.

Then Serge moved away. But never forgot.

Now he's back, with those legends looming larger than ever in the rearview mirror of his memory. As his literary odyssey moves north from Key West, closer and closer to his old stomping grounds, Serge digs into the past as only Serge can. Along the way, he unintentionally disturbs some long-forgotten ground, attracting the attention of a cast of villains that only Florida can produce.

As the body count grows, so does the list of questions:

Why are the guys in the hard hats worried about the monkeys? When do you hack a motel air-conditioner? How does Coleman get high with cat toys? Who is expecting the dildo? And will book tours ever be the same after Serge decides to check one out?

Told in alternating flashbacks between Serge and Coleman's childhoods and the present day, The Pope of Palm Beach is a witty and deliciously violent delight from the twisted imagination of Tim Dorsey.

the most empathic Serge yet!

Good stuff. Serge at his best, taking on big pharm' and crooked big business. Coleman is still the anchor and Johnny Vegas has a cameo.

As always a great experience

"People always say they want change, but when I show up...."
-Serge Storms
"The Pope of Palm Beach"

Found myself smiling very often while listening, if you enjoy Serge and Colman, you'll enjoy this.

Also no strippers! Guess Serge is in his mature woman phase.

A winner from Dorsey

I truly enjoy the madcap humor in Tim Dorsey's work. The history of the area interspersed throughout adds a touch of realism to his whimsical plot s.

Yes and no

I didn’t know what to expect when I read this book it was recommend it as sort of a history book about North Palm Beach area. I’m not sure I like the style lotta different characters of times I lost interest other times I couldn’t stop listening.

Classic Serge!

Loved the story, as always. And of course there was plenty of Florida history to make you feel like you've learned a lot!

Filler sandwich between slices of Serge.

Not up to entertainment value of previous books in series. Felt like another, unrelated story was inserted in the middle.
