Publisher’s description: “Aubrey Lyle has removed herself from the polite society of those who do their jobs in clothing, to earn a wage that she can live on in San Francisco. The sign over Naughtyland’s door, her place of work, reads ‘Live Nude Girls.’ Unfortunately the job has its drawbacks, including smelly dressing rooms and sadistic bouncers. Most of the other girls are great, except the one who ends up dead. With her lively housemates as sidekicks and confidants, Aubrey uncovers a sordid network of self-serving politicians, smarmy club owners and corrupt union organizers.”
