Fifteenth in Tim Dorsey’s Serge Storms series is
Pineapple Grenade: A Novel (HarperCollins, $13.99). Miami’s one-man vigilante and his stoner side-kick Coleman are back—as secret agents. Something big is about to go down in Miami, and it just might involve the recently reactivated CIA cell operating in the same historic building that plotted the overthrow of Fidel Castro. The intelligence community isn’t amused. “Dexter just can’t compete with this guy. For non-stop spy-jinks and neo-crusted cackles, head down to Miami for Tim Dorsey’s explosive Pineapple Grenade.”— Miami Herald. Steven M. Forman
Steven M. Forman appearance is cancelled.
Boca Daze (Forge HC, $25.99) is the latest novel in Steven M. Forman’s popular detective series following Florida’s most beloved sexagenarian P.I, Eddie Perlmutter. Eddie, a former homicide detective who runs a P.I. business out of a Boca Raton retirement community, finds himself facing off against illegal pill mills and a financial scammer that would put Bernie Madoff to shame. "Mystery fans who like their operatives macho with an offbeat sense of humor will certainly enjoy this book.”—Library Journal. Neil Plakcy
The latest in Neil Plakcy’s Golden Retriever Mystery series is
Dog Helps Those (Amazon Digital Publishing, $10.95). It’s almost time for graduation, and Eastern College is in trouble. A prominent alumna is dead, and a faulty computer program is jeopardizing student records and financial aid. It’s up to Steve and Rochester to dig into the situation and retrieve the culprits! Plakcy is the author of three other Golden Retriever Mysteries featuring Rochester, all inspired by his own dog, Samwise, who was just as sweet though not quite as smart. Michael Haskins
Car Wash Blues (Mick Murphy Mysteries) (Five Star, $25.95), sixth in the Mick Murphy Key West mystery/thriller series, pits Murphy against a Tijuana drug cartel. ". . . delivers abundant action, car chases, boat chases and an alphabet soup of weapons. Toss in some subterfuge and a brewing hurricane and you've got the perfect beach read."— Library Journal.
