Serge Storms, that lovable thermonuclear vigilante, has been leaving corpses strewn across the Sunshine State for more than a decade. The authorities notice the body count, and send a task force to track down Serge. Could his luck finally have run out? Meanwhile, armed with his perpetually baked sidekick, Coleman, Serge decides to resurrect his Internet travel-advice website where you, too, can learn how to experience Florida through the eyes of a fugitive.
Off they go, blogging along a getaway route through the states most remote bayous, back roads, and bars, where the number of cadavers begins stacking up like Serges website hits. Clues and questions mount: Who are all the women being photographed in the swamp? And what made Coleman draw on his face with Magic Markers? In the meantime, Serges grandfathers old Miami Beach gang suddenly has their life savings wiped out, and theres a good bet it was no accident. Too much action for Serge to juggle? Not when it involves his favorite new obsession: tracking Al Capones little-known escapades in the Everglades.
