Hillarious Earth-based Sicence Fiction
Paperback, 428 pages
Published by DAW
Settling into life as the new head of A-C’s Airborn division, Kitty Katt finds herself mired in yet another plot to control the A-C population. With the unexpected return of an experimental space craft to Kennedy Space center… Kitty and the rest of Alpha team are called in to investigate. But as with anything Kitty enters into, things don’t turn out quite how she’d hoped. And, as if things aren’t bad enough with the conspiracy unfolding… Kitty has to meet Jeff’s parents.
As with the first book in this series, Tango is fast paced and laugh out loud (Seriously, people around you may think you’re deranged) funny. Kitty winds up in even stranger situations than before – though less fugly – and the conspiracy angle has an oddly familiar ring. As a second novel, this one doesn’t disappoint. Koch continues to toss her heroine into some of the most awkward situations imaginable. (Read this book just for the alligators if nothing else.)
The only complaint I have with this series is that Kitty is unrealistically alluring. She is the object of most everyone’s affections. And Jeff is still too needy/self-conscious.
Buy, Borrow, Brush Past:
This one definitely goes in the buy category. A quick, fun read that is enjoyable enough to reread on a rainy day.
