At first, I did not think I would like this, but once I got into it, I really did. It is a fun story, if a tad dated. I want to classify it as suspense, but it is a little too humorous for that. ( )

Hiaasen is up to his usual tricks. This one really takes aim at politicians and sleazy lawyers, but is actually a bit "tamer" than others of his works. It all starts in a strip club when a congressman beats a drunken groom who has "overenjoyed" his bachelor party. ( )

Entertaining as only Hiaasen can do. Very easy to read, quick to finish and satisfying. Like a palate cleanser between two heavy dinner courses. ( )

Book description
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, Hiassen's latest and most inventive tale of save appetites and sweet justice.
