A magnet for hurricanes, boat people, and geezer snowbirds in pastels, Miami does crazy better than anywhere, whether it's the media feeding frenzy over the "Hollow Man," a gutless corpse found on the beach, or the giant shark carcasses stuffed with some other human's limbs jamming up busy intersections.  But Florida trivialista and one-man vigilante Serge Storms has bigger fish than dead stuffed sharks to fry. He wants to be a spy—and what better way to demonstrate his wares than by taking surveillance photos of foreign consulates as Miami plays host to the Meeting of the Americas Conference! His best bud Coleman isn't sure about this James Bond stuff. But then Coleman is too stoned to be sure about much, including Serge's all-new Secret Master Plan. Could it involve the CIA spying on itself from the very place it launched Operation Mongoose to overthrow Castro? One thing is certain: neither Homeland Security nor the company is amused when newly caped crusaders Serge and Coleman start taking out would-be political assassins targeting a banana republic president.  A tinpot dictator and the Hollow Man aren't the only pollution threatening Florida's shores. There's a mysterious Mafioso selling grenade launchers, Gulf Spill oil, and a new shade of scary in the terror warning colorwheel. So many messes what's a concerned citizen-psychopath like Serge to do? No doubt, the fruit will fly when he pulls the pin out of this Pineapple Grenade!

A magnet for hurricanes, boat people, and geezer snowbirds in pastels, Miami does crazy better than anywhere, whether it's the media feeding frenzy over the "Hollow Man," a gutless corpse found on the beach, or the giant shark carcasses stuffed with some other human's limbs jamming up busy intersections.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“For non-stop spy-jinks and neo-crusted cackles, head down to Miami for Tim Dorsey’s explosive Pineapple Grenade.” Miami Herald
“A successful blend of high stakes thriller action a la Miami Vice with the laid back beachcombing style…The plot jumps back and forth in time deliberately for sake of fun. Characters return from past Dorsey books sometimes with cameo quips, sometimes in leading roles.” Examiner.com
“Bestseller Dorsey dishes up his Miami mayhem with a side order of mordant wit in his fifteenth Serge Storms novel…neither Dorsey’s fast-paced prose nor his delight in skewering human foolishness has lost its mischievous sparkle.” Publishers Weekly
