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

    What a Bunch of Misfits

    If you read and enjoy thrillers full of bad guys duping other bad guys you will definitely love this bunch of misfits.

    What we have here, is the story of an aging, arrogant, impotent gangster hanging onto his ego, supported by a puppet staff bullied into carrying out his orders in order to retain power and his supremacy in the underworld of flesh peddling and money laundering.

    Manco Kapak owns a few clubs in the LA area and moves money for a major drug distributor. One night while making his daily deposit someone robs him at gun point. For a man of his status the loss of money is irrelevant, he cannot show weakness, a strong message has to be sent. His reputation shaken he dispatches his henchmen to flush out the guilty. In haste, they mistakenly finger Joe Carver, a man with nerves of steel and a few skeletons in the closet of his own...What follows is a multitude of nail biting events.

    Some other memorable characters are bad ass Spencer, Marco's trusted body-guard and then there is Carrie, a woman with the DNA of a tiger and a passion for blood and money. You will love her, she is fascinating, frightening and one of the most exhilarating to follow.

    The muscle headed mobsters show their true colors when faced with competition from their own kind. Killing over money, turf and petty grievances are all in a days work.

    This is a kaleidoscope of sadistic double-crossing characters. Good cops, bad cops and petty criminals make this novel what it is. We are presented with a scenario that is very well drafted, diverse, intriguing and a story that will bring hours of reading entertainment
