Brian Malone is one of the best young defense attorneys in the city. Brian is at 'The Men's Club' (a bordello) treating his soon-to-be-married friend to a final wild night out. Brian hates the place and can hardly wait to leave. His interest perks up, though, when he spies a lady he knows and tries to catch up with her in the back of the club. That is the last anyone knows about Brian's where-abouts. =============== At the same time, Andrea 'Andy' Kendricks is too busy to think about her boyfriend, Brian. Seems Brian's colleague and ex-girlfriend, Allie Price, has dragged Andy to a Chippendales' show. Andy is busy imagining what her mother, Cissy Blevins Kendricks, the Dallas society maven extraordinaire, would think should she find out where her daughter was. Shortly thereafter Andy finds out that Brian is missing. His friend claims that Brian ditched him and ran out of the club with one of the dancers. Allie may believe that, but Andy did not! ================== Andy must put aside her mean spirited thoughts about Allie and team up with 'the Blond Menace' to figure out what is going on. ==================== ***** Author Susan McBride has become one of my favorite mystery writers ever! Her characters are always so well developed and totally believable. How could I not adore Andy, the main character? She is perky, sassy, and often hilarious! This mystery will keep you on the edge of your seat AND laughing uproariously. Stellar! *****

I did not buy this series thinking i was getting the next great classic. I was just looking for an easy read for a change. Nothing to write home about. Cheap read. Enjoy what you pay for.

Don't care for heroine. Too immature for my taste. I've read other three and she seems to be getting more jealous, pouty, petty, and childish. Rather ruins the story.

This is a rich girl and it is silly to wear paint splatter clothes and think she is rebelling buying cheap furniture and fast foods. I buy at walmarts and cook from scratch and get good buys from local auctions and used/antique stores. HER attitude has just become too annoying.if the shoes cost so much why dont they ever fit and why does every new dress disappear never to be worn again?

If you lost your boyfriend (you are a woman) when he attended a bachelor party for a friend that was held at a strip joint, how would you feel? That's what happened to rich girl Andy Kendricks when Brian Malone failed to appear after that questionable night. Oh Andy might understand to some degree why he went to such a place but where and why did he disappear without a clue? Brian had been seen running out of the back door of the strip club with one of the strippers and he was immediately suspected to be the culprit in the disappearance. Possibly the worst part is that Andy attended a similar type of place where males were "on display" and had one wrapped around her neck! This the very same night Brian was attending his bachelor party. The search for Brian involved his ex-wife, Andy's mother and her new boyfriend, and several neighbors that always had to "butt in" when anything appeared not completely normal. When Brian's car was found with the strippers dead body in the trunk, the police came in to play and many became a suspect. The two investigating cops, nick-named Starsky and Hutch, placed much pressure on all of them, being sure one of them killed the stripper. The entire scene became murky when one of the clients who was represented by the firm for whom Brian was an attorney became involved in the investigation. Andy's mothers boyfriend, Stephen, offered his assistance to help Andy find her old boyfriend since she did love him and knew he couldn't have killed the stripper, despite what the police think. A strange ransom was demanded. This brought the family together to plan as best they could to end this mess of a puzzle while not losing the money and getting Brian back in one piece-alive! A very entertaining story containing many humorous parts that allow you to laugh while questioning who did what to who! Good story Susan.

Cute, but personally I think the mother Cissy should have been the theme character rather than her sniveling daughter. At least Cissy has style and makes things happen. Nothing much to like about Andy who has accomplished nothing in her life but disparages everyone who is successful--just a whiney self-centered trust fund baby with a massive superiority complex. Thinking about it now even Allie would have been preferable as the main character. Read this book if you must just don't expect anything from the dropout deb--she's only there for the bad jokes. I really just want to give the book 2 1/2 stars.

It¿s an ironic tradition that has the soon-to-be-married celebrating with strippers right before the wedding, and it¿s not surprising that these events often result in the loss of members of the wedding party. In Susan McBride¿s fourth Debutante Dropout Mystery Night of the Living Deb, it¿s not the groom but his best friend who disappears, leaving his girlfriend Andy Kendricks distraught and seeking answers in some of the seediest strip joints Dallas has to offer. After her own rather inglorious moment at a Chippendale¿s show ends with her being photographed by her boyfriend¿s ex¿s cell phone, Andy¿s ready to be forgiving for any misdeeds Brian might have committed after being forced to take the groom to a strip club. But when Brian goes missing after last beomg seen in pursuit of a big-busted dancer, her trust is tested as she faces a nightmare with the best situation being that he¿s shacked up with a silicone dancer, and the worst too horrible to imagine. Teaming up with Brian¿s ex and fellow attorney Allie Price, Andy hunts down ¿Trayla Trash¿ looking for answers and soon ends up seeing a side of Dallas that would have her mother quaking in her Prada pumps. Once again McBride has written a hilarious mystery that has the reader cheering for Andy as she sinks to one of the lowest points in her life. While a little darker in tone than the previous novels in this series, the odd-couple pairing of Andy and Allie brings a wonderful humor and wackiness to the story. Andy¿s mother Cissie again proves herself to be than just an elitist socialite, and her love for Andy wins out over their mother-daughter battles. This is a witty, highly entertaining series that continues to entertain and leaves readers eager for more Andy Kendricks adventures.

In Dallas, defense attorney Brian Malone accompanies his friend Matty Karas, a groom to 'The Men's Club' bordello as his engaged buddy wants a lap dance before he says I do. Bored with the ¿Stepford Strippers¿, Brian cannot wait to leave so he can sit on the lap of his girlfriend Debutante Dropout Andrea 'Andy' Kendricks, Brian is stunned to recognize one of the dancers. He goes over to see her, but suddenly goes down the proverbial ¿rabbit hole¿. No one has seen him since. While Brian vanishes, his former girlfriend and legal partner Allie Price takes a reluctant Andy to see the Chippendales perform. As she watches the hunks show off their wares while performing, Andy pictures her socially correct upper class mother, Cissy having cardiac arrest for her daughter breaking the upper crust rules again by attending this show. Not long afterward Matty tells Andy that Brian dumped him at The Men¿s Club to leave with one of strippers Andy knows her Brian too well to believe that though Allie insists otherwise. However, Allie'the Blond Menace' and the Debutant Dropout investigate with both knowing that she will be the one to boast I told you so. --- The fourth debutant dropout mystery (see THE LONE STAR LONELY HEARTS CLUB) is a delightful humoresque amateur sleuth tale starring enemy combatants teaming up to learn what happened and why to the missing Brian. Readers will enjoy the Blond Menace¿s assessment that Brian ran off with a hooker vs. the loyal Andy insisting he must have been abducted. Fans of the series will enjoy this lively entry that starts with the club celebration and never slows down until the end when the heroine kicks herself with her pinching Manolos. --- Harriet Klausner
