    Story

    An aging but formidable strip-club owner, Claudiu "Manco" Kapak, has been robbed by a masked gunman as he placed his cash receipts in a bank's night-deposit box. Enraged, he sends his half-dozen security men out to find a suspect who is spending lots of cash and is new enough to Los Angeles not to know he was robbing a gangster.

    Richard Delman says: "Marvelous romp thru colorful LA gangsterland."
    "A worthy companion to the Jane Whitefield novels"
    Overall

    I've read most of Perry's novels. The Whitefield novels stood head and shoulders above the rest ... until "Strip". The plot twists and turns, holding the reader's interest... the characters are interesting and well-developed.

    "Economic hit men," John Perkins writes, "are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder."

    Robert P. says: "Excellent Story for people have traveled"
    "Lots of potential, not as good as I hoped"
    Overall

    This book is heavy on the author's philosophy and musings, and short on actual incidents and history... it could have been a tightly written, compelling read if edited down to the plot/story line.... but as is, I kept waiting for the 'interesting' part , for the story to pick up the pace - but it never did
