This story, which largely takes place in strip clubs, is full of violence and sex with some romance and a touch of prayer. I chose this book because I have bought and enjoyed some of Ms. Lisle's SF&F stories. I was in a hurry and didn't read the jacket. My error. She is a good writer but I found myself skimming through the sex and prayers looking for mystery and was disappointed. The major characters could have been the basis for a good story. This isn't it.

FANTASTIC book! As written earlier in this blog, I thoroughly enjoyed Midnight Rain by Holly Lisle and I went right out to pick-up Last Girl Dancing and even though I really need to be focused on moving and work and family -- I couldn't put this book down once I started. Holly Lisle writes a darn good romantic suspense book! Again the subject matter is not the fluffy variety. Going undercover as a stripper is probably not the ideal job for most cops, but Jess Burbaker has 2 very good reasons for accepting the assignment. Her twin sister Ginny disappeared 13 years ago and she had moonlighted as an exotic dancer, so getting an idea of Ginny's world might help and two because she desperately wants to become a permanent member of Atlanta's famed Homicide Special Crimes Unit (HSCU) so she can continue to search for her sister. The stripper assignment comes with a catch -- in order to help find the serial killers, Jess must pair up with Hank Kamian, a tough former Army Ranger with a rare psychic ability. The pacing of the story is tight and Ms. Lisle has this great ability to make you fell just a bit creeped out. She delves into the emotions and feelings of Jess taking on the identity of a stripper and in my opinion, does a tasteful job of making the story about the people and not about the 'stripping.' It was a fast read and one I delighted in. I certainly hope there are more to come from her! EXCELLENT reading!

Atlanta Police department Homicide Special Crimes Unit (HSCU) is looking to stop apparently two serial killers working in tangent targeting Perimeter¿s exotic dancers. HSCU Detective Jim Hennicut recommends to his boss Captain Howard Booker that they ask for ¿Princess Grace¿ as he affectionately calls Detective Jess Brubaker to go undercover as she meets the physical requirement of the killer. Jess reluctantly agrees because this might be the break for her to learn what happened to her stripper twin sister Ginny, who thirteen years ago vanished without a trace. Because of regional politics including the FBI, the task force consists of Jess, Jim, his partner, and a martial arts psychic who is not a cop. Jim¿s friend former Ranger Hank Kamien agrees to help. He and Jess enter the sordid realm of exotic dancing and not long afterward a killer targets the female cop. However, trying to hide their attraction from one another becomes almost as difficult as playing cat and mouse with diabolically clever killers. --- This is an exciting police procedural romance that takes off at a fabulous pace once Jess goes undercover and never slows down until the final confrontation with the killer. Though the clues as to the culprit¿s identity are there, fans will be shocked as Holly Lisle does a terrific job with misdirection. The romantic subplot between the undercover duo augments a fine suspense thriller that keeps the audience in a state of high tension throughout the whole tale. --- Harriet Klausner

Holly Lisle's Last Girl Dancing is a smart, sexy detective story with some sharp twists and more than a few surprises. The story and the characters combine to make a fast read that never lacks for action. Better yet, these are some of the most fully developed characters I've read in a long time. Last Girl Dancing entices you into a web of conflicting agendas and fascinating characters, not the least of which is Jess Brubraker. She's a beautiful female cop that is assigned to the Atlanta Homicide Special Crimes Unit when a serial killer targeting exotic dancers starts escalating his activities. Jess is asked to go undercover as drink waitress at an exotic strip club to track down the killer. And when the HSCU introduces her to her contact, a disfigured ex-Ranger named Hank with his own issues, sparks fly in every direction. The fire that ignites threatens everyone. Smart, sexy, well plotted - this book is too good to ignore. In fact, we should be seeing it as a movie on Showtime or HBO. It is that good. Buy Last Girl Dancing. Read it. Feel the heat.

Someone's killing strippers in Atlanta. When Detective Jess Brubaker is asked to go undercover on this case, she knows it will be a dirty and dangerous job. She soon finds out that she is putting her career on the line, not to mention her life, to solve a case in which she has no clues, no support from the Atlanta Police Department, and a partner she considers a bumbling fool. And that's just in the first chapter! The author has graciously posted a sneak preview of Chapter 1 on her Web log ( http://hollylisle.com/writingdiary/article.php/last_girl_dancing_chapt er_1 ). Free registration is required. If you like suspense, this is a must read. Pre-order your copy today. You don't want to be left out in the cold when this one sells out!
