ALIEN IN THE HOUSE
A-C Ambassadors 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.
When the new congressional representative from New Mexico dies holding Kitty’s hand while in the Centaurion Embassy, she is determined to find out who killed him and why. Was he the target or just collateral damage? As Kitty and crew start investigating, they discover that a frightening number of congresspeople have recently died. Now that Jeff has suddenly been appointed as the new representative from New Mexico, Kitty is determined to stop the deaths before her husband becomes the next casualty. (DAW, May, 544 pp., $7.99)
