2 cassettes/ 3 hoursRead by Edward AsnerCongressman David Dilbeck has a bad problem
"I should never," he says, "be around naked women." And late one night, at a gaudy Fort Lauderdale strip joint, Dilbeck loses control. He leaps onto the stage with the performers and proceeds to demonstrate his affections in a most unconventional way. The congressman barely escapes the scene, but not before being recognized by an odd little customer known as Mr. Peepers - an unlikely blackmailer, but (it turns out) a cunning one. From the staid corridors of Congress to the sweltering cane fields of Lake Okeechobee, from a topless wrestling pit to a sunken Guatemalan banana boat, STRIP TEASE is a maniacally inventive and suspenseful tale that resonates with the furious intelligence, merciless characterization and savage good humor that we''ve come to expect from Carl Hiaasen.
