Serge A. Storms, sometime sociopathic storm chaser, makes preparations for a storm to hit his sunny home. As he plans for bad weather, news of a serial killer strikes in Florida and he finds himself not only in the middle of chasing storms, but searching for a killer.
Coleman is Serge’s somewhat unstable sidekick and really hates to work. When he and Serge are not storm chasing, he loves to drink plenty of beer and watch the Party Parrot on television.
Serge and Coleman get ready to be hit by heavy rains and winds as the hurricane season takes off toward Florida. In the midst of everything surrounding them, the media informs the public that an offender has been released from prison. Now the hurricane winds are not the only things causing worry to the area. Serge knows finding any serial killer will not be an easy task, especially with damaging storms. Not helping matters is Coleman, who seems to be more of a disruption than anything else. Serge hears his old friend, who loves to get into his head; Agent Mahoney is mentioned with the release of the serial killer. As a criminal profiler, Agent Mahoney is almost certain there are two killers instead of one. Serge certainly does not need two identities to battle in his head. They can only hope to stop the killer, or dueling killers, before any more grisly homicides take place.
I enjoyed Hurricane Punch. I could almost feel the adrenaline rush and feel of the hurricane season and the strong winds tossing back and forth. The plot with the serial killer during the hurricane was really explosive. There were some things that were really creepy with this killer that just raised the hair on the back of my neck. I have yet to read the other stories with Serge and Coleman, but this is just the beginning for me because Mr. Dorsey has sketched a story that makes me want more. Serge and Coleman are two characters that are quite out of the box, so to speak, and reading about their way of life and things they are confronted with is quite interesting.
