Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Paradise!
Freshly laid-off Wisconsinites Patrick and Barbara McDougall are going to sunny Florida for a modest romantic vacation. But the motel they picked isn't quite a pastel paradise, and they have to be midwesterners and make the best of a bad situation. Except bad goes to worse, and a string of misfortunes renders them unable to leave the state.
Meanwhile, the next Mexican-American War is being fought, this time in Fort Lauderdale, between the Kentucky mafia and the Oxy cartel over control of the lucrative pain clinic market. Latinos are turning up dead, hillbillies are wandering the beach trampling sand castles, and cops continue arresting doctors wriggling out of office windows.
But it's never really a party until Serge and Coleman arrive. Cruising down U.S. 1, Captain Florida and his perpetually altered sidekick are on a mission to film the best reality show ever!
Back at their motel, the McDougalls are peeking out the curtains. They've become very popular, especially with Serge, who believes he's found the perfect stars for the pilot of his new TV series.
Are the McDougalls safer with Serge or should they take their chances on the mean streets?
Will Coleman get tired of signing autographs?
Can pelicans be used as murder weapons?
Is time running out for our heroes?
And, finally, the question still on everyone's lips: What's up with Florida? Stay tuned for all the answers in...The Riptide Ultra-Glide!

Maybe someone who smokes a lot of pot

Has The Riptide Ultra-Glide turned you off from other books in this genre?


Would you be willing to try another one of Oliver Wyman’s performances?

No his cartoon voices added to the annoyance of the book

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Riptide Ultra-Glide?

The stoey was very shallow and repetitive

Any additional comments?

This is the first time I wish I could get my money back.

More Serge and Coleman

Readers of this series will have to continue with this episode. New listeners would be better advised to start at the beginning of the series, but not completely necessary. As usual, Dorsey pokes at Florida issues, (violence and crime), and even some local Wisconsin political crazyness. Same great reader. He does an excellent job with this zanyness and the characters.
