Described in a Library Journal review as “rambunctiously entertaining,” Thomas Perry’s new novel, Strip (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2010), is a fast-paced L.A. crime novel by an Edgar-winning writer who consistently provides unique characters and plot twists. Strip club owner Manco Kapak is robbed as he attempts to deposit his cash receipts (substantial, since he has a nice money-laundering business going). Thus begins a wild ride of pursuing the wrong guy, the real thief making a very bad girlfriend choice, an oddly bent police detective, a triple murder no one really wanted … and a neat wrap-up at the end.
