Mr. Paradise by Elmore Leonard

Anthony Paradiso, aka Mr. Paradise, is an 80-year old retired lawyer. He pays Chloe, an escort, $5000 a week to come to his home and dress up as a topless University of Michigan cheerleader while he watches videos of their football games. One evening, Chloe convinces her roommate, Kelly, a Victoria's Secret catalog model, to don a cheerleader outfit and join them. Mr. Paradise and one of the girls are murdered that night. It's up to police detective Frank Delsa to sort out the corpses, the girls, the hit men, Tony's right hand man and granddaughter, and a bundle of cash and figure out who done it. Mr. Paradise is Elmore Leonard at the top of his game. The Washington Post says, "It is unputdownable, packed with excruciating suspense and I couldn't stop reading it."
