Alien Collective (Katherine "Kitty" Katt Book 9)
by Gini Koch
DAW, $7.99, 544pp
Published: May 2014

Back Cover:  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 Senator Vincent Armstrong. They’re up against a virulent anti-alien ticket supported by the Church of Intolerance, Club 51, and a host of other enemies. Plus an influential gossip columnist called the Tastemaker has them in his sights. While the Diplomatic Corps has to deal with a political campaign that is sure to uncover secrets they don’t want shared with the world, Ambassador Kitty Katt-Martini has additional worries. Tracking down the hidden Yates Offspring before their enemies can find them has been hindered by the devastating damage done to Centaurion Division’s data and personnel during Operation Infiltration. But they need to find these hybrids and super-talented A-C’s to have any hope of fighting what’s coming.  Bio-weapon attacks that force the evacuation of the American Centaurion, Bahraini, and Israeli embassies, along with bombs exploding all over D. C. and at major U.S. Centaurion Division are bad news. But a little old lady in deadly danger because she knows much more than she realizes and the arrival of a new super consciousness determined to find ACE guilty of the crime of interference sets the stakes way too high—and the coming confrontation could expose Algar, too!  Kitty’s in the middle of a Battle Royale that will decide more than just the next president of the United States---it’s going to decide the fate of the world… and possibly the galaxy.

Yes, book nine is an action-packed roller coaster ride. I loved it. Of course I have loved all of the books in this Alien series. Gini Koch has done it again.  Book ten is out, “Universal Alien”.  I’ve got to read it too. ~~ CLD
