Turning The Tables

Strip is clever, entertaining, funny, and hard to put down. The fact that it is pretty implausible hardly enters your mind until all the fun is over. The characters are all pretty interesting, especially the main guys...and women!

ThThomas Perry is a top drawer writer. He uses lyrical, literary style in the thriller/suspense genre;
another technique is the twists and surprising denouements.

Strip, however, is completely different style from anything I have read by Mr. Perry, and I didn't care for it.
 In a sense, it is slapstick - a parody of true crime/mob novels. When I considered it was a farce of sorts, I kept reading,
attempting to appreciate the dark humor... to no avail. The plot was driven by the sociopathic major character and some psychotic minor
 characters, and it all became so implausible that I ran out of steam as the absurdity of it all trudged on and on.
Like keystone cops, one can only take so much, especially when the comedy is so dark

    Readable, but not my favorite

    I love crime novels and have been a Thomas Perry fan since reading "Butcher's Boy'' a couple of decades ago. I did enjoy reading "Strip'', but I thought the intricacies and double-crosses slowed things down -- maybe too many characters for us to get to know and evaluate? I found that when my real world intervened, I was not so filled with regret by having to put the novel down.
