Welcome to another typical summer in Florida, the season of the storms. Serge storms.

That lovable, under-undermedicated dispenser of truth, justice, and trivia is back with a vengeance. And not a weirdness-laced moment too soon.

His cherished home state is about to take a beating, and from far more than the way-too-routine conga line of hurricanes bearing down on the peninsula. Bodies have begun turning up at a disturbing rate, even for Florida, and it looks like a brutal serial killer is on the loose, which highly offends Serge's moral sensibilities and he vows to stop at nothing in his juggernaut to make All Things Right . . . except if he gets bored or distracted by a cool souvenir or . . . or a . . . whatever.

But his path won't be obstacle free.

Agent Mahoney has picked up the scent. The obsessive criminal profiler—just released from a mental hospital where he'd been sent for getting too deep inside Serge's head—is convinced there is no second killer. Serge's personality is simply splitting from decades of burning with incandescent zest for everything under the sun. Then there's Coleman, whose triathlete approach to the sport of polyabuse binging just might derail the mission more than the entire police community put together.

The pace picks up. Winds howl, TV reporters fly around the beach, the Party Parrot parties on, and questions mount: Who's stalking Tampa Bay's most sensitive journalist? Did Tom Cruise go too easy on Matt Lauer? Do multiple orgasms improve storm tracking? Why is the feeding-tube guy so quiet? Will Molly ruin our antihero's dreams of playing the electric guitar better than Clapton? . . . All of which ultimately leads to the most pressing question on everyone's new-millennium lips:

What would Serge do?

From AudioFile:

One of the best at exposing societys absurdities, Tim Dorsey does it again with HURRICANE PUNCH. Serge A. Storms, a serious whack-job serial killer, and his supremely stoned sidekick, Coleman, are on the road again, this time chasing hurricanes in Florida. Oliver Wymans performance offers up a rollicking good time for fans of this dynamic duo. Theres a serial killer on the loose whos getting all the headlines, and Serge is outraged by comparisons to his work. Serge has scruples, after all. He only kills those who need killing, like the boor who wont turn down his car stereo or the ghoul selling bags of ice to hurricane victims. Wymans performance provides laugh-out-loud moments, but be warned: Dorseys offbeat humor may offend those with delicate sensibilities. S.J.H.
