Meet New York Times bestselling author Tim Dorsey Saturday, March 1.  Tim regales us with his gloriously unrepentant Florida serial killer, Serge Storms, and discusses his latest book, TIGER SHRIMP TANGO: A Novel.

Determined to save a damsel in distress, the Sunshine State’s favorite serial killer and encyclopedia of Florida lore Serge Storms dances a tango of death and mayhem in this funny and dementedly entertaining crime caper.

Thanks to the Internet, America has become a playground for ruthless scam artists out to make an easy buck. And where do these models of entrepreneurship hail from? Why, the Sunshine State of course!

No one loves Florida more, or can keep it safe from invasive criminal species better than self-appointed Sunshine Sheriff Serge Storms. When a particular scam leads to the death of a few innocents and a young woman's disappearance, Serge and his sidekick Coleman — aided by his new pal, latter-day noir private eye Mahoney — load up the car for a riotous road trip to do right. Packed with seafood, mayhem, blood, Coleman’s deep thoughts, Floridian lore, and more, TIGER SHRIMP TANGO is a hilarious treat from the incomparable Tim Dorsey.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Saturday • March 1 • 2pm
