Patrick Barry: Strip

Very fun cover that looks great in the store - printed on what appears to be metallic paper, since the wave pattern is all foil and remains foil from front to back. I like how the waves make the man look like he's flying around in mid air hanging on to dear life. The story takes place in LA, where a young couple robs a badass mobster strip-club owner, who exacts his revenge on the wrong man, leading the couple to try to rob him again, all while a bigamous police lieutenant takes charge of the increasingly violent case. New from Houghton Mifflin.
