Only in America could an innocent, if drunken, guest of honor at a strip joint bachelor party become a mortal threat against Big Money and Big Government. Only in south Florida, land of roadside honky-tonks and sinister pleasure boats—not to mention blackmail and murder—would a virtuous topless dancer join forces with a cool but clueless cop. And only in the fiction of Carl Hiaasen do readers experience riveting suspense and razor-sharp characters along with the most wicked humor imaginable. This is Strip Tease, Hiaasen’s most inventive tale yet of savage appetites and sweet justice.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Carl Hiaasen's Bad Monkey.

One doesn't want to detract from the novelist's evident powers of imagination, but Hiaasen is an investigative reporter with the Miami Herald, and this kind of stuff must pass by him all the time.
