The Stripper by Carter Brown

The strawberry blonde did a real H-O-T strip....
until a corpse chilled the show
Robert McGinnis Cover
She was a stripper called Deadpan Delores and she was billed as "The Girl Who Says It All From The Neck Down", and her spectacular curves were seldom kept under wraps. When they saw her in action, weak men became strong, kings surrendered their crowns, and Lieutenant Al Wheeler almost forgot that he had come to investigate a murder.

The girl was a stranger in town. She didn't have any money. She didn't have any friends. Why did someone want her dead? What starts out as a baffling murder case soon turns into  the most bizarre caper of Al Wheeler's checkered career. A muscle bound athlete tries to us Al as a punching bag. A sultry brunette receptionist comes to his apartment to perfect her strip routine. A torrid redhead succumbs to his charms and then gives him the fast freeze. And someone behind the scenes a killer is quietly working give Al Wheeler a permanent vacation.

    While clubs can generate revenue through means such as cover charges and drink fees, dancers make most of their profit from giving lap dances or VIP dances where regulations allow. Otherwise customer tips to dancers from a stage set are their primary form of payment per shift. The dancer qualifies a customer by sizing up his appearance and personal characteristics. Once the dancer identifies her mark, she approaches and attempts to create a false social relationship with her customer using tactical interactions and manipulations toward a result of monetary gain. Customers can make the first move and engage the dancer directly, but more experienced dancers will have seen most of their tactics already. Published research indicates that dancers generally avoid interaction with female patrons by passing them over or possibly confiding in them rather than recognizing them as viable lap dance customers. Strippers appeal to masculine desires, and need to feel comfortable they can adapt to fit the needs of female patron to view them as a customer by default. Adapting the experience to the customer is an integral part of exotic dancing.
    The best place in Manchester for hot male and female strippers and exotic dancers is Executive Strippers. At Executive Strippers, we refer to our people as "talent" for a very good reason — our men and women know their business when it's time to get a party started.
