Perry's books, while occasionally violent and sexual, are never explicitly so (unless, of course, I have become too jaded by reading the newspaper,) and there is an undercurrent of humor that never fails to bring a smile. it’s sneaky peek into the life and times of young and restless criminals, it’s like days of our lives fly on the wall stuff. It has the beautiful, the ugly, the bad, there are no good people except one waitress.

Claudiu 'Manco' Kapak is a strip club owner. When placing his cash receipts in a bank's night-deposit box, he is robbed by a masked gunman. Kapak is determined to find the culprit and make him pay. After a month of investigation Kapak's goons settle on Joe Carver, an innocent but hardly defenceless newcomer who evades capture, furious at being wrongly accused. Meanwhile the real culprit and his new girlfriend believe they've found a whole new profession, robbing Kapak of his strip club's cash. As the case explodes into a triple killing, Carver finds himself in the middle of an escalating gang war over Kapak's little empire, ploughing into territory more strange and violent than he could ever have imagined.

I have always enjoyed reading Perry - from the gritty to the far-fetched, this guy can write. He is one of the two or three authors that I will pay whatever Amazon charges.

His imagination is about as lively as they come, and he always manages to convince me to suspend my disbelief regardless of the plot - "The Island" being exhibit A. "Strip" is no exception. A wonderfully layered and mildly looney adventure with a trio of male heroes spanning three criminal generations. There is no point to recapping the plot because that's not really the point of his books. It's all about character.

Perry really writes his female characters well, and his women are always smart, strong, crazy - choose two. The men seem to be rather bemused partners or dupes who enjoy the sex and abdicate authority because it's just easier. But his anti-heroes always stay metaphorically on top and one layer of cool away from being ensnared by the sex.

His unfailing dry wit and goofy plots make for a great read, but he never forgets (OK, occasionally) that he is writing thrillers. Derring-do runs alongside ham-fisted bumbling, violence, and cruelty. As well, there is always a certain casual sang-froid to the violence and the implicit "What did you expect when you hang around gangsters?" Perry will shoot anyone - even just for fun - and justice does not always prevail, but he never betrays character.

Preferences are always personal, but if you have an active sense of irony, you will enjoy Perry. And don't forget to read all of the Jane Whitefield books.
Nothing personal
I am a big fan of Thomas Perry but this book left me cold. I had to struggle to finish it. I kept thinking it was going to get good, but it never did.

I've read many of Thomas Perry's books and this is one of his best. Starts out with a bank and hooks you immediately. A bit far fetched but a great read nevertheless. Highly recommend it.

Thomas Perry is brilliant and one of the best suspense/mystery writers around. Just wish he would write faster and produce 3-4 books a year. I'd grab every one. He NEVER disappoints. There are always very clever plot twists. Did I mention that I love his books?????

If Manco Kapac didn't have bad luck during the time frame of this novel, he wouldn't have any.

Manco owns a dance club and two strip joints in LA and as a sideline of his businesses he launders money for a drug king pin in the area. Things start to go sideways for Manco when he is held up while making a night deposit by an up and coming young hoodlum by the name of Jefferson Davis Falkens. Falkens has no idea of the chain of events he is about to set off nor does he have a good idea as to how successful this robbery was.

Through some less than effective digging into who the perpetrator was, Manco believes that a newly arrived patron of his establishments by the name of Joe Carver is the culprit. Carver takes excpetion to the misidentification and Kapac finds that Carver is really the wrong guy to be on the bad side of.

Meanwhile, Jefferson gets booted out of a relationship he was trying to nurture and ends up with a ditz by the name of Carrie who upon discovering his way of making a living, gets wildly turned on by the notion and they become a modern day Bonnie and Clyde, knocking of Manco's people making another deposit with bullets flying and later invading his dance club and stealing the safe while destroying a part of the building in a hilarios scene.

This penchant that Manco has for having his deposits robbed (along with the drug guy's money) doesn't sit will with the drug guy and Manco is marked for extermination. This is where it gets really interesting and that is all I am going to say about the plot.

The writing is highly entertaining and a departure from the types of books I have read by this author. The characters are vividly drawn, dialogue is sharp and the twists and turns are juicy. This is a book that just purrs along and if you are looking for an fun read for the summer, you have just found it!

I would recommend this book to any reader who appreciates a twisting, exciting plot, and great bad guys and gals.

Great writer wish he would follow up with more crazy charecters
Well written book but when I finished reading I asked myself out loud 'What was the point?'. The large cast of characters didn't bother me but the fact that only a few were fully fleshed out did. **SPOILER ALERT** The spur of the moment kidnapping attempt at the end should of been left on the cutting room floor. Overall I would recommend but be warned you might end up feeling a bit unsatisfied at the end.
