When a supposed friend asks for help after the corpse of a mobster turns up in her bedroom, Sierra Lavotini, an exotic dancer in Panama City, Florida, turns sleuth, only to find herself assaulted, shot at, harassed by the police, and abandoned by her "friend"

McMillan Palgrave
A Sexy Stripper-Sleuth Bares It All to Catch a Cold-Blooded Killer
The whip-smart Sierra Lavotini is the hottest act on Panama City's strip scene. She's the headliner at the bare-all bar, the Tiffany Club. Besides her bodacious business, Sierra's life is fairly simple. And that's the way she likes it. But when a good friend, Denise, seeks her help, Sierra's life takes a murderous turn.

Seems Denise's furry friend Arlo has just been "dognapped." From the pricey ransom note, Sierra figures there's much more to this case than meets the eye. And her hunch proves correct when a quick trip to Denise's apartment reveals a fresh corpse. Sierra can't shake the feeling that her friend isn't telling her the whole story--especially after Denise turns up missing and the body count continues to rise. Determined to reveal the naked truth, Sierra tackles this steamy caper head on, digging in her stiletto heels until the dangerous job is done.

Sierra Lavotini is a knockout, and she's got talent. An exotic dancer and erstwhile amateur sleuth with a daring approach to whatever life throws at her, Sierra won't let anyone push her around.
Sierra is the headliner at the Tiffany Club in Panama City, Florida. This particular encounter with trouble begins when she tries to help her friend Denise find out what happened to her dog, Arlo, who has vanished. In his place Denise has a ransom note demanding $100,000 for Arlo's safe return. Of course, someone as worldly as Sierra deduces that there's more to this "dognapping" than meets the eye. And she's right: A quick trip to Denise's reveals a dead man in her bed.
Quicker than you can say 38DD, there's more trouble than even Sierra is used to, thanks to both the cops and those who probably did in the dead guy. Faced with such dogged opponents, Sierra has no choice but to dig in her five-inch black stilettos and find the killer on her own.

The "strip" series featuring Sierra Lavotini bears a more-than-passing similarity to Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books. Different setting and characters but many parallels. If you like the Evanovich novels, it's a good bet you'll like these. Start at the beginning with The Miracle Strip.
