Shark Skin Suite (Serge A. Storms #18) Reviews
If you know this series, you'll know you're going to laugh. The last few chapters, especially, Dorsey is firing on all cylinders and generates belly laughs as fast as the action is moving to its conclusion.
At least twice a year I need a shot of pure, unadulterated madcap humor. Nobody better to fill that need than Tim Dorsey and thankfully he's prolific enough to satisfy the requirement. Serge and Coleman are up to their usual antics and there is a courtroom segment that is really kind of cool. Serge is not quite as inventive in his methods of doing in the bad guys as he is sometimes. Dorsey describes Serge's reaction to the overly sedate manner in which some people execute a left turn at busy sto ...more
Didn't have the flair other Florida writers have in this type of genre...
Not 4 Me
Humorous, but for me a sick subject. Criminals are the good guys, and while bashing in heads they blurt out humorous. Dialog. They are bleeding funny statements. The author should be praised for his gift of humor.
Serge is back and up to his normal mayhem! Not too many laugh-out-loud moments in this one, but there's just something about Serge and his sidekick Coleman that make it a good read anyway! 5 out of 10.
A manic-paced commentary on the mortgage crisis, the justice system, and Florida.
Finished reading " Shark Skin Suite " by Tim Dorsey. As usual it was great. Mr. Dorsey has not written a bad story yet. Staring my favorite spree Killer Serge A. Storms. Creative, hysterical, and crazy all at once!
Serge is at it again.This time he has decided that he wants to work on the side of the law. In fact he wants to be a lawyer! But since he didn't go to school for it he can't be one unless he gets arrested and defends himself. So he will do the next best thing and be a freelance fixer f ...more
Who doesn't love a murdering psychopath? Well, one that only exacts wrath upon the worst of the worst. I live in Florida, and in light of the recent shootings near Miami, reading this book from 2015, Tim Dorsey nails it with a little Serge speech:
You know what a fan of irony I am. … If you are arrested for possession [of pot which you had stashed in a gun magazine] you plea bargain and during your allocution you say, ‘I admit I was the one who removed all of the bullets from the assault rifle’s ...more
