Kitty Norville continues her late night radio talk show while traveling around the country as the out of the closet werewolf who no longer belongs to a pack (see KITTY AND THE MIDNIGHT HOUR to learn why). She is in Barstow, California when she learns that Congress is conducting hearings into the scientific work of the Center of Paranatural Biology, a little known government agency headed by Dr. Paul Flemming. Kitty is expected to testify.------------------ After arranging to meet her lawyer Ben in DC, Kitty turns her car around and heads east. In DC, Master Vampire Alette invites Kitty to stay at her mansion, which raises the radio star¿s hairs as vampires and werewolves are natural enemies. At a reception in which Leo the vampire escorts her, kitty meets were-jaguar Luis of the Brazilian embassy. They hit it off and soon become an entry. However, the fanatical Senator Duke awaits exposing Kitty as a demon even as Alette insists the real threat is Flemming who insists the para-humans suffer from diseases.---------------- The second Kitty the werewolf radio jock is a fabulous satirical tale that humorously spoofs the supernatural element in literature and the US Senate. The story line is fast-paced though the action is somewhat limited especially for those who read Kitty¿s first venture. Kitty is a ferocious lion with a chick lit personality as fans will enjoy her asides, for instance like feeling as if she is a teen and Alette her mom scolding her as only a maternal can. Carrie Vaughn provides a fun tale in which Kitty is beginning to understand what she has wrought as she tries to get equal rights under the law for vampires and the were-menagerie.--------------- Harriet Klausner

I just started reading the Kitty series and after reading the first book i was anxious to read more, however Kitty goes to Washington was not what i was hoping for. The entire book has to do with politics and it was like pulling teeth to get through this book. It rambled on and on about court hearings and the senate, i just couldn't get into it at all. The only chapter i did like was when she was dealing with the vampires otherwise this book was horrible. No humor, repetitious phrases, wimpy lead character...BORING

    Only if it's raining outside

    Yeah another Kitty book! OK, so that was sarcastic. This book took a full 233 pages before it became interesting. The worse part of this series is I feel a need to read the rest of the books. There is so much unused potential in Kitty that I am determined it must come out in later books. While Kitty is less annoying in this book than the former Kitty and The Midnight Hour, the plot is just lame. Really, who wants to read about senate hearings? The one battle Kitty faces against the secretive preacher Elijah Smith, turns out to be anti-climatic for the reader. Sexy Cormac makes another appearance, but yet again, nothing comes about. Kitty does see a little action with sexy were-Jaguar Luis, but it is nothing more than a fling. (Fair warning there is nothing descriptive or passionate to those who like some meat to their love stories.) At least the last 90 pages held my attention. This is another one day, rainy day read.
