It's time to start the book discussions for the December releases from DAW! First up, the new Gini Koch release, Alien in Chief, the 12th book in this series. Who here has read it? What did you think?
Cover Copy: The Mastermind has upped his game . . .
As Kitty can tell you, it's not easy being the wife of the vice president--especially not when he's an alien from the Alpha Centauri system. And being a parent of preternaturally talented children, don't even go there. But she and her A-C husband, Jeff, have learned how to roll with whatever life and the bad guys throw at them--they think.
Kitty & Company have been savoring a few months of quiet since they got back from Beta Eight. But suddenly their peace is shattered by the arrival of a mysterious female assassin--who might be Jeff's missing niece, Stephanie. And that's just the beginning of the fun.
When the Alpha Centauri Planetary Council requests a visit with the president and vice president, things look politically dicey. When the most dangerous prisoners in the most secure supermax prison escape with ease, things look bad. But when the Mastermind releases a virus that kills people in a week, things go to Defcon Worse fast.
Now it's up to Kitty to save everyone important in the U.S. government--including her mother, her husband, and herself--before the virus spreads through the rest of the country, and then the world. Plus she's facing invisible attackers, crazed assassins, a teenager in hiding, the most dangerous train ride ever, the disappearance of her beloved flyboys, and a mysterious alien who could be an enemy or the ally she needs.
And this time, the Mastermind's made it very personal. Either he's going down . . . or Kitty is.
