When Elves Attack
Serge Storms Series, Book 14

Palm trees with twinkle lights. Santa's big belly protruding over a neon Speedo. Yes, it's ho ho ho time—when pine replaces palmetto and winter birds nest in the balmy paradise of the Sunshine state. Like Santa, Serge Storms knows who's been naughty and who's been nice. Few can give with the generosity and creativity of Serge, and as December 24 rolls around, the bighearted psychopath is filling up the Serge sleigh with an unforgettable bag of presents. But before that, there's the office Christmas party, where he'll be spreading his special cheer. And there's that last minute go-for-broke spree at the mall (just beware of those attacking elves—they bite.) While you're there, skip the lame photo on Santa's lap—Serge will give you a lap ride you'll never forget. As for that addled elf Coleman, there's nothing like a white Christmas. Let it snow! So grab a six-pack, spike the eggnog, and hit the dunes of South Beach as Serge and Coleman roast some nuts on an open fire and prove that reindeer really do know how to fly!

    January 23, 2012
    This small holiday package, the 14th Serge Storms thriller (after Electric Barracuda), packs a satisfyingly large punch of classic Dorsey craziness. At Thanksgiving, civic-minded serial killer Serge executes an unpatriotic thief the time-honored Florida way, in the explosion caused by deep-frying a frozen turkey. In December, Serge decides he’s “taking Christmas large.” He and his stoned crony, Coleman, rent a suburban house, serve up a gingerbread house-turned-bong, and haunt the local mall dressed as elves to protect the public from seasonal felons and mean mall cops. Along the way they re-encounter familiar characters, including the G-Unit, a quartet of elderly spitfires on the lam from their retirement home. The snarky humor is a nice change from the usual Christmas-season sweetness, and Serge’s paradoxical personality is at its most charming, whether he’s reprimanding a teenage girl for smoking just before torturing her boyfriend with a specially rigged set of Christmas lights or reveling in his first taste of snow. Agent: Nat Sobel, Sobel Weber.

  • AudioFile Magazine Hyperactive psychopath Serge Storms and his druggie sidekick, Coleman, head home to Tampa in hopes of a kindler, gentler Christmas. Wherever Serge goes, can mayhem be far behind? Oliver Wyman embraces his inner-screwball as he gives voice to Tim Dorsey's multitude of semi-normal and criminal nutbars in the Sunshine State. Wyman's enthusiasm is as infectious as Serge's plans are outrageous. Serge and Coleman move into a suburban tract house across from old pal Jim Davenport and his family, where holiday stress has everyone's nerves jangling. Davenport's teenaged daughter wants a tattoo, Serge and Coleman are involved in a violent incident at a mall while dressed as elves, and some untraditional gingerbread adds spice to the festivities. Oliver Wyman's high-energy performance ramps up Dorsey's insanity, providing extremely funny listening. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine
