So Serge and his pot-addicted friend Coleman is back and this time they're tackling mortgage scams. Serge decides to become a lawyer and help his "girlfriend" Brook (who we met in the last book) in her case. In typical Dorsey fashion, things get out of control fast.
I'm a fan of Tim Dorsey and this series. I must be considering this is book 19 but sometimes he loses me and this was definitely the case here. This book didn't have a clear plot and direction like some of ihs earlier work and got quite confusing and muddled at times. Quite funny as one would expect with a Serge Storms novel, but not nearly as much as the prior books.
Dorsey has a tendency to ramble in his books - that's mostly why he's successful with this series: he's a successful, well-performing rambler, but this time it just doesn't work. The first third of the novel flows nicely but then he lost me. However, reading the other reviews online, this is one of the higher rated novels in this series so I guess its all in the eye of the reader.
One neat thing that came of this novel was the introduction of Serge's wife Molly. I won't spoil how that plot line ends but it definitely makes me want to read his new work, Coconut Cowboy.
I love to read and to discuss books. My preferred genre is sci-fi but I like to read mostly anything.
