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)

    "Fun Read"

    I love Carl Hansen's books and this was one of his best. The story line was excellent and the crazy Florida characters were unforgettable.

    "Fun"

    Fun, light fiction full of the usual mix of cretinous S Florida low lifes, which is fun to read about!

    "Alternate reality"

    I found this book an almost perfect combination of believable circumstances exaggerated just a bit in a very funny way, a clever and sometimes informative plot, interesting quirky characters, and a narrator who gets the tone exactly right. Excellent!!

    "Okay read"

    I like this author and usually laugh a lot while reading but this book, while engaging, was not as funny as others. I did not really like the main character Erin. Saving grace was Chad the bouncer.

    "Never Disappoints"
    If you could sum up Strip Tease in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, environmentally friendly.


    Any additional comments?

    Carl Hiaasen books always leave me wanting more. They are laugh out loud funny and his characters are impossibly clever and care about the planet. The reviews stated that the book was better than the movie, and it is true! It took me a long time to download this from my wish list because I saw the film (badly done), but it was a joy to listen to the book.

    "Better than the movie"

    Strip Tease is not bad. It did not take to much to become an improvement from the movie. A typical mix of Hiaasen's crazy Florida rednecks, political buffoonery, and high jinks surrounding a mother who has gone to work as a stripper in order to keep her daughter away from her druggie husband, only to have a corrupt Judge turn her employment into rational for putting her child with her husband. I did not like this as much as much as I have enjoyed tales of Skink, but still good.

    "First review written with audible after 3 yrs"

    I felt the need to review after listening to 100's of books. This is my one of my top 10 . It is a combination of many authors I love! In a good way! If you are a Lee child or James Patterson fan that likes humor and a great story.. It's a must

    "Don't Bother"

    I never saw the movie, so I had no expectations going into the book. This seemed such a stretch to me; a very '80s storyline. Super intelligent female, down on her luck, saves the town/world/whatever. Yadda yadda yawn.
