In versatile Showalter's new futuristic novel, the world teeters on the edge of disaster. Danger and sizzling sensuality are hallmarks of her style, and they're both here in this latest Alien Huntress novel. Kicking butt and taking names
is what these protagonists do best, and they crank up the action quotient for an intense new read!

Alien investigation and removal agent Jaxon Tremain figures his number is up. Captured and tortured by aliens, he expects to be executed, but then his new and beautiful interrogator kills his captors.

Half-human/half-machine Mishka Le'Ace is a slave to the powerful man who controls the life-or-death chip in her head. When she's ordered to rescue and interrogate Jaxon about a deadly new plague being spread by a renegade alien, for the first time in her life, Mishka feels genuinely attracted to a man. But she knows the brutal Senator who controls her would destroy her before letting her go. (POCKET STAR, Jan., 384 pp., $6.99)
