“Amazing…one of his funniest and most deftly plotted yet.” Providence Journal

Florida’s favorite trigger-happy, shoot-from-the-hip vigilante history teacher is back—and he has a few scores to settle.

Serge A. Storms is hitting the road. Inspired by the classic biker flick Easy Rider, the irrepressible trivia buff and his drug-addled travel buddy, Coleman, head out on a motorcycle tour down the length of the Sunshine State, on a mission to rediscover the lost era of the American Dream. But going from small town to small town, they discover that some have lost much of their former charm—including one particular hamlet of sleazy rural politicos hell-bent on keeping prying eyes out of their ineptly corrupt style of local government.

Serge and Coleman engage in some high-life hijinks, complete with the state’s trademark crop of jerks, lethal science experiments, drug kingpins, double-crosses, unearthed bodies, barbecue, and groovy tunes. And when a few innocent newcomers stumble into the mix, the stakes are raised to new backwoods heights.

“Entertainingly picaresque.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
