My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This may be my favorite Serge A. Storms book.
I am in love with Florida: the beach, the history and the lifestyle. I’ve call this place home for over twenty years and the longer I stay, the more interesting I find this place to be. Among all the great attributes of the Sunshine State, one of my favorite things about Florida is it’s colorful past.
Which leads me back to Serge.
Cadillac Beach is a tale told by jumping back and forth between present day the sixties (with various stops in the nineties and the early 1900s.) Tim Dorsey is so obviously in love with Florida, too, that he paints the place as a character in every one of Serge’s murdering adventures. In this one, he (Serge) is trying to solve a decades old mystery regarding his his grandfather’s suicide which is somehow tied to a famous jewel heist from yesteryear.
Like the other Tim Dorsey books I’ve reviewed, I recommend this one as a great audio book… especially if you find yourself regularly on the road in Florida.
