Even wily Florida adventurer Serge A. Storms, and his strung-out pal Coleman had to live through COVID, but after they get vaccinated, they once again turn their condo in the Keys into party central. Serge eventually takes the revelry on the road in a former prison bus. They have company on their final trip. Several honest people were caught up in a botched CIA op in Honduras; a cop named Yandy, Reevis, a reporter, and Debbie, a cowgirl-dressed undercover agent. When they all escape to Miami, they are pursued by cheap military contractors, operatives with cameras, and even fans of a full-sized nightclub bunny hero. Reevis knows the best way for salvation is to turn to Serge for help. Only Serge can turn a bus full of seniors and three fugitives into an explosive spy film on Seven Mile Bridge.
VERDICT There’s an audience for Dorsey’s 26 Serge A. Storms novels, but this one is only for series fans. Coleman and the seniors are high throughout the book, and the combination of Honduras, bunnies, fake militia, and the CIA turn the story into a disorganized caper.
