It’s been five months since marketing manager Katherine “Kitty” Katt started working with the aliens from Alpha Centauri, and she and Jeff Martini are getting closer. But when an experimental spacecraft is mysteriously returned to the Kennedy Space Center, Kitty and the rest of her team are called in to investigate. Now the team must survive murderous attacks, remove a space entity from a group of astronauts, and avoid an unhinged woman with a serious crush on Kitty’s high school boyfriend. And that’s all before evil masterminds decide Kitty’s extermination is vital.
Kitty and Jeff are now, for all intents and purposes living together. Jeff is avoiding his mother, and Kitty is using the quiet period to learn how to fly jets. As head of the Aviation Division she has the best teachers available to her (all Top Gun Grads). But things can’t stay quiet forever. They get a call to send their teams down to Florida to the Space Center and investigate what appears to be an infestation of an experimental craft while in space. With all the usual jokes, teasing and snarky comments from her team she has her work cut out for her.
If she only had to deal with the mission things would have been easy. But with murder attempts at every turn , and more groups of enemies all coming at her at once, she will need all her skills and sense of humor to survive. And I don’t just mean the mission.
You’ll just have to grab a copy of this wonderful book to see what happens next. I was grabbed by the cover artwork and stayed for the fantastic writing of the author.
