Although humor still plays a major role in the antics and adventures of A-C Ambassador Kitty Katt-Martini and crew, this newest outing is without doubt the darkest of the series to date. Constantly saving the world means Kitty is always playing for high stakes, but this time the consequences could be tragic. For those craving futuristic high-jinks and gripping adventure, Koch is an absolute master!
The fallout from Operation Sherlock means that Kitty’s hubby, A-C Jeff Martini, is now the new congressional representative from New Mexico. When the FBI requests a meeting with Kitty and the A-C contingent, the news is not good: Rumors of a new super-drug are surfacing. When Area 51 and Dulce Science Center suddenly go quiet while Alpha Team and A-C Security are there training, Kitty gets a very bad feeling. Then a hacker attack by the supposedly mythical “Chernobog the Ultimate” devastates Centaurion Division. Figuring out who is behind these attacks is step one in finding a way to fight back.
