About the Author

Tim Dorsey is the author of multiple bestselling novels in the popular Serge Storms series, for which the Providence Journal called him "the undisputed king of the comic crime novel." Before becoming a full-time writer, he was a police and courts reporter for the Alabama Journal and a night metro editor for the Tampa Tribune.

Reviews

"With what is his best title yet, best-selling Tampa author Tim Dorsey returns with his 24th adventure...a 'fan'-tastic, worthy addition to the pantheon." -- Florida Times-Union on Tropic of Stupid

"A wacky celebration of violence, depravity and the weirdness of Florida. Think the Three Stooges meets Ted Bundy . . . sure to appeal to readers who think that Carl Hiaasen's slapstick noir novels are too darned subtle." -- Associated Press on Tropic of Stupid

"This hugely entertaining series . . . [has] been one delightful adventure after another. Storms is a wonderful character, a man with a can-do attitude and, well, a unique sense of retribution. You can't help liking the guy: he is, by all objective standards, a dangerously insane psychopath, but to Serge, it's the rest of the world that's crazy, while he's merely a misunderstood crusader for law and order. A new Dorsey novel is always a cause for celebration among readers who like their heroes more than a little bent." -- Booklist on Tropic of Stupid

"Bestseller Dorsey breezes through his 24th comic novel . . . mixing the slapstick humor of the Three Stooges with Sunshine State details that would make a Florida history professor envious." -- Publishers Weekly on Tropic of Stupid

"This is one of the best series of books out there . . . There may not be a better bromance team than Serge and his bestie Coleman. Tim Dorsey nails it every time with his pop culture and local south Florida refrences and his many LOL moments. . . . It's another fun ride around South Florida, with many interesting characters and Serge using his smarts to outwit the bad guys." -- Red Carpet Crash on Tropic of Stupid

"Dorsey's latest in the humorous crime fiction category highlights that outrageous brand of Florida humor. With chaos always at his side, Serge A. Storms is back, and this time, he's on a cemetery tour across the state, investigating an urban myth that just might be real and causing mayhem along the way."
-- Parade

"Upping the ante has always been the strategy for Tim Dorsey's books, which are built on a peculiarly Floridian brand of outrageousness. So it's no surprise that in his latest, Naked Came the Florida Man, Dorsey reaches a new high in that respect."
-- Newsday

"Readers with an appetite for gallows humor will be sated." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"What more can I say about Tim Dorsey, whose capacity to churn out rollicking, ribald, comic crime thrillers shows no sign of waning in his latest Serge A. Storms effort, Naked Came the Florida Man.... Packed with verve and vibrancy. Along, of course, with laugh-out-loud, side-splitting fun." -- BookTrib.com on Naked Came the Florida Man
