Genre: sci fi fantasy
Cover: filled with action
The President and First Lady, aka Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini, don't get any downtime once the Mastermind has been revealed to the world. Not only do they have myriad high-level government positions to fill, but the scrutiny and pressure on this Administration has gone into overdrive.
The sudden reappearance of a long-forgotten adversary turns out to be the tip of the iceberg. New robots and androids attacking, old enemies making new alliances, and new aliens with interesting abilities almost overshadow the fact that the U.S. still has to host a peace summit at Camp David between Israel and Iraq. It's clear that while the Mastermind may be down, there are plenty of others ready to take his place - and all that stands between them and success are Kitty and Company.
Kidnappings, rescues, creepy hideouts, a hidden black site, and a domestic dispute that could end Jeff and Kitty's marriage are nothing compared to finding not one but two hidden labs where dangerous and deadly things are brewing.
But when the President and his entourage finally get to the peace talks, things are no better. Mossad rightly suspects something's wrong with both their Prime Minister and the President of Iraq. A hidden in-control superbeing, an android replacement, and an army of Fem-Bots turn the peace talks into a Battle Royale that the team might not actually survive. And if they don't make it, Earth won't make it, either.
But no pressure.
This book picks up right where the previous one ended, with no time to take a breath for Kitty and Company. It is non stop action and intrigue, and Kitty has to get used to being the FLOTUS fast. Living in the White House, instead of the Alpha Centaurian Embassy, and possibly without the Elves! But all the animals will still join them nightly, and of course invisibly during the day.
But this time, Gini has picked up the pace with some creepiness, by putting Kitty and her gang in one of the scariest places in America: Forest Haven Insane Asylum. It absolutely added to the atmosphere of the book, and if you love creepy stuff, you will love it. I so never want to go there! (Yes, it is a real place, and yes, there are pictures and stories on the internet if you are curious.)
Something also happens that makes Kitty absolutely furious with Jeff, Chuckie and Reader, and they will have to grovel to make it up to her. That was a great scene, where Kitty speaks her mind and tells them off.
There never seems to be a shortage of enemies, old and new, and plots against Kitty and her children. But with the help of her music, her secret ally and her devious brain, Kitty foils them all. I can't wait to see what will happen next.
