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.

Kitty Martini’s 13th adventure (after Alien in Chief) opens with her hoping for a much-needed break after helping to stop a villain’s hyper-lethal virus, but the action never pauses in Koch’s fun, energetic series. Alpha Centaurian–American Jeff Martini is now president; fortunately, Kitty’s responsibilities as the first lady don’t interfere with her kicking butt. She’s forced back into action by a series of enemies seeking her help, android doppelgangers, captured pilots, stolen invisible helicarriers, a creepy abandoned mental hospital used as a hideout, and the Roomba of Evil. This high-spirited novel continues the balancing act between banter and action that has helped make the series successful, and Koch fills out newer characters while throwing in the occasional shake-up to keep things a little off-kilter. Fans of Kitty’s snarky, music-driven jaunts into danger will continue finding much to love in a series that shows no signs of losing its kaboom. Agent: Cherry Weiner, Cherry Weiner Literary. (May)
