Pole Positions: Stripper Detectives!
Created by Nancy Barholemew
Okay, okay, I know, I know. SIERRA LAVOTINI is not a private eye -- she's that most pesky of creations, a series amateur sleuth. But hey, she does take her clothes off. And the books are a hoot, Sierra is a gutsy, gusty, busty, blonde stripper (she calls herself an "exotic dancer") who struts her stuff at the Tiffany Gentleman's Club in Panama City, Florida, owned by the not-particularly brilliant Vincent Gambuzzo. and poor Sierra, she seems to stumble across murder and crime with a frequency that would give Jessica Fletcher pause.
Fortunately, despite her frequent abuse of the English language, Sierra's no dope, and with her crew of stripper pals, trailer park neighbours, her cop boyfriend, John Nailor, and her hairless Chihuahua, Fluffy, she usually manages to catch the bad guys and save the day.
A lot of low-rent laughs, some bawdy humour and more than a little steam make this series a natural for fans of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series.
