Pineapple Grenade - my induction to Serge and Coleman. Certifiable wackos. Satisfyingly obscure, albeit so far fetched that it all becomes a tad confusing. Funny and hip mixed with totally gross and perverse. This was a really entertaining read. Dorsey has a real flair for funky titles and I am looking forward to trying another one in the series.

Take Spies Like Us and any good James Bond movie, mix with the Marx Brothers - shaken not stirred, of course! -- and you have Pineapple Grenade. This zany thriller is set in Miami, Florida, as two experienced operatives, Serge and his sidekick, Coleman, stumble upon an assassination plot, combined with an arms deal and drug trafficking.

Serge and Coleman do their best to infiltrate the opposition, encountering double agents and ne-er do wells on both sides of the fence. Serge even finds romance with the stunningly lovely Felicia Carmen. As the killing noose tightens around President Guzman’s neck, Serge, Coleman and Felicia race to stop a deadly sniper who could end the man’s life. Will they be able to get there in time? What incredible secrets will be revealed in the chase?

Although the beginning of this novel was rather like a merry jigsaw puzzle of clues, soon the pieces began to take shape into a horrific plot. This was the first book I’ve read by this author and I really enjoyed Serge and Coleman’s ideas of dispensing “justice” and the mega twists and turns in the story itself. Well done.

Serge is at his homicidal best in this new adventure.

I have been a fan of Tim Dorsey and Serge for a lot of years. I enjoyed this book. I do think that some new energy needs to be injected into the series. It's starting to become a little mundane and predictable. I am still a fan though.
