Publisher's Summary

No matter what you heard or thought about the movie version of Strip Tease, forget it. Film simply can’t catch the layers of humor, satire, and imagination that author Carl Hiaasen creates in each of his novels.
When a deranged Florida congressman falls for a gorgeous but virtuous stripper, he dedicates himself to pursuing this tasselled princess. Not only is she a real beauty, she’s a damsel in distress. The effects of his quest will ripple through the spotlights of the strip joint, the sugar cane fields of south Florida, and some powerful political careers.
Fueled by innocent lust and dizzy miscalculations, this story will keep you howling with surprise. George Wilson’s colorful narration is the perfect vehicle for Carl Hiaasen’s twisted fairy tale.


What the Critics Say

“Rough, raucous, and filled with lovable losers, Strip Tease is a caper novel for readers not afraid to laugh out loud.” (People)
“Reading a Hiaasen book is always a high-speed boat ride where laughter can turn to horror and disaster at any moment. Hearing the story aloud adds a dose of realism and sensation; these characters really could be driving around the streets …” (AudioFile)

What did you love best about Strip Tease?

This has it all--humor, gore, great dialogue, characters, and plot.

Any additional comments?

The reader is fabulous. He is clearly an actor as well, and gets each character's individual voice spot-on.

Hilarious drama

Carl Hiaasen is one of a kind. Kept me laughing, as people were getting knocked off right and left. How is that possible? It's all in the slap stick writing that is so enjoyable. This tale starts out with a young mother forced to strip tease so she can afford a good attorney, in order to regain custody of her daughter. Her ex, is a lowly drugged out thief, who just happens to be a snitch for the local police. In pops an oversexed Congressman that gets himself in a compromising predicament at the strip club. The whole story is trying to cover up this Congressman's indiscretion, while Erin just wants to get her daughter back.
It's crazy and zany with lovable and hateable characters, that keep you in stitches throughout. Highly recommend this one.
