Binging on a marathon of legal movies set in Florida, Serge finds his calling: the law.

One of Serge's old flames, young lawyer Brook Campanella, is also a rising star thanks to her expertise in the field of foreclosure law. Ruthless at taking down the greedy banksters kicking people out of their homes, she lands a major class-action lawsuit, and wins big. The opposition is determined to shut her down and they'll go to extreme lengths to do it. Luckily for her, Serge has been hired to do some investigative legwork on the case. There's nothing he likes better than saving a damsel in distress, especially when it means kicking a bunch of shyster butt.

When elves attack : a joyous Christmas greeting from the criminal nutbars of the sunshine state by Tim Dorsey( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nobody does Florida weirdness quite like this author. This novel is about thrill killer and Sunshine State historian Serge A. Storms, the most endearing psychopath since Dexter Morgan. The author offers this zany blockbuster extravaganza in which his wonderfully deranged serial killer Floridaphile delivers his special brand of Christmas cheer. More outrageous than Santa Claus in a Speedo, this book serves up a Yuletide feast of "pure gonzo humor". This book is much like Bad Santa and National Lampoon's Family Vacation, and blended into the author's trademark appetite for destruction, it becomes a hilarious crime fiction black comedy
