I'm reading a thriller, "The Execution" by Dick Wolf. The quote is from page 56  in the print ARC.

She went off to pour his drink, and he looked around for an empty table. The barmaid might as well have worn a sign reading, "Will Flirt for Tips." Fisk had zero interest right now. He spotted an empty high-top and retreated to it as soon as his drink came, sitting facing the door.

  4. I think that flirting for tips does work, according to friends who have been bartenders (the female kind).

  6. I like the phrase "will flirt for tips." I hope you are enjoying the book. Happy reading!

  7. Clever - "will flirt for tips." If this is the tone of the whole book, I'd definitely enjoy it. I like thrillers that are sprinkled with humor to diffuse the tension.
