Sierra Lavotini Mysteries

Nancy Bartholomew

Minotaur Books

When Vincent Gambuzzo, the not-so-bright proprietor of the Tiffany Gentleman's Club in Panama City, Florida, loses his business playing poker, his headliner, exotic dancer Sierra Lavotini, faces a crisis. The new sign out front reads BIG MIKE'S HOUSE OF BOOTY, and Big Mike's new business strategy leaves a little to be desired in the class department and even less to the imagination of the increasingly rambunctious clientele.

As the dancers' unofficial leader and mother hen, Sierra leads most of her coworkers in a walkout and schemes to restore Vincent to power. But he's in jail, charged with murdering a man in a shootout at the end of that same disastrous poker game. Can Sierra prove Vincent innocent, help her fellow out-of-work dancers, and manage to make next month's trailer payment without a job?

With the help of her neighbor Raydean, her on-again boyfriend, Panama City Homicide Detective John Nailor, and her "uncle," "Big Moose" Lavotini of the New Jersey syndicate, of course she can, and it adds up to another fantastic ride in this hilarious and sexy series.

Read an Excerpt

OneSomewhere around the stage area of your finer gentlemen’s clubs like the Tiffany, there is a panic light. When there’s a problem in the back of the house it glows red, kind of like Rudolph’s nose. It’s there, up above the runway, so the bouncers who are watching the front of the house can see it and respond. To my knowledge it had never been used. But on the Saturday before Christmas I saw Bruno, the steroid-impaired bouncer, stare at a spot just above my head. When his jaw dropped like a granite boulder, I knew we had trouble.He wheeled around and left me at the mercy
