Overview

Despite not having run for office, nor wanting to remain in office, Representative Jeff Martini is being wooed as the vice presidential running mate for a charismatic senator who seems likely to win the campaign. While the Diplomatic Corps has to deal with the pressures of a political campaign sure to uncover secrets they don’t want shared with the world, Ambassador Kitty Katt-Martini has other worries—handling the reemergence of her most potent nemesis, thought dead and buried.

Praise

“Kitty and Jeff Martini and their ever-expanding gang of humans and aliens return for another highly entertaining dose of dangerous and wildly offbeat adventures. Koch continues to be the go-to author for anyone wanting madcap futuristic adventure heavily laced with deadly danger and laugh-out-loud fun.”—RT Book Reviews
 
“The variously dark and cheerful seventh installment of Koch’s Alien series is a crowd-pleaser…. The best hallmarks of the series—frequent banter, head-first dives into action, tangled webs, and Kitty’s snark—are in full force again.”—Publisher’s Weekly
 
“Rollicking, sexy fun—science fiction hasn’t been this much of a  blast since … well, never.  Grab on with both hands and enjoy the wild, lusty ride.”—Robert J Sawyer
 
“This delightful romp has many interesting twists and turns as it glances at racism, politics, and religion en route. It will have fanciers of cinematic sf parodies referencing Men in Black, Ghost Busters, and X-Men. Meanwhile, readers who like the smart sf silliness of Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy novels, Lois McMaster Bujold’s Vorkosigan Saga, Pat Murphy’s There and Back Again, and A. Lee Martinez’s The Automatic Detective will find it distinctively different, for Koch’s humor is more in the vein of MaryJanice Davidson in her Undead series, but darned amusing, all the same.”—Booklist
 
“It’s one hot, fast-paced, crazy romp, with plenty of humorous banter to go with the blood spatter and discussions of wedding dresses.”—Locus
