Reviewed by: Bob Walch

The ultimate, comic anti-hero, serial killer Serge Storms and his sidekick Coleman wade into another improbable situation that has the Florida tourist bureau shuddering.

Wisconsinites Patrick and Barbara McDougal are experiencing a less than restful vacation in the Sunshine State. Their motel is a disappointment, but that's the least of their problems. When they get caught in the cross-fire between the Oxy cartel and the good ole' boy, Kentucky mafia, the Midwesterners are going to need assistance the local authorities can't provide.

That's where Serge comes in. Looking for some "regular folks" to feature in a reality show he's thinking of producing, Serge decides the McDougals fit the bill perfectly. Of course, that means he'll have to help them out of the predicament the couple is presently in. If you have followed this series you know that Serge can be a formidable adversary. The bad guys harassing the McDougals have certainly met their match, but the real question is, would it have been better had the McDougals never met Serge?

Oh yes, when they finally do head back to their home these vacationers will have a wild tale to share with their Cheesehead buddies. Of course, no one will ever believe the part about pelicans being used as murder weapons!
