Electric Barracuda (Paperback)
Serge Storms has been leaving corpses strewn across the Sunshine State for more than a decade and the authorities have begun to notice. Could Serges luck finally have run out? Armed with his perpetually baked sidekick, Coleman, Serge decides to resurrect his Internet travel-advice website about trekking the Sunshine State. Off they go blogging along a getaway route through the states most remote bayous, back roads, and bars, where the number of cadavers begins stacking up like Serges website hits.
Clues and questions mount: Who are all the women being photographed naked in the swamp? What made Coleman draw on his face with Magic Markers? Where is the cruise-to-nowhere taking its drunk prisoners?
Too much action for Serge to juggle? Not when it all dovetails nicely into his Secret Master Plan. And especially if it involves Serge's favorite new obsession: tracking Al Capone's little-known escapades in the Everglades. So gas up the car, say good-bye to the relatives, and join Serge on the lam as he drives straight for the deepest bowels of Florida to unravel the final mysteries of Electric Barracuda.
