This is the second book from Vaughn showcasing her protagonist Kitty Norville, popular late night radio show host and occasional werewolf. The first book detailed Kitty's rise to fame as the only talk show host to focus on the supernatural, accepting calls from vampires, werewolves and wannabes. When the show goes national, Kitty ends up in hot water with her own werewolf pack, the local vampire group and a couple of local odd balls. This time Kitty finds herself invited to Washington DC to testify in front of a Senate hearing on the supernatural. When she arrives she's invited to stay with the local vampire mistress, meets a group of local werefolks, gets involved in some intrigue involving a Senator, a scientist and a rogue vampire and ends up on national television as an unwilling participant in a scientific study. From official release/information:
From back of book: The country's only celebrity werewolf, late-night radio host Kitty Norville prefers to be heard, not seen. But when she's invited to testify at a Senate hearing on behalf of supernaturals, her face gets plastered on national TV. Kitty's been in hot water before, but jumping into the D.C. underworld brings a new set of problems. And a new set of friends and enemies, including the vampire mistress of the city; an über-hot Brazilian were-jaguar; and a paranoid, Bible-thumping senator who wants to expose Kitty as a monster. Kitty quickly learns that in this city of dirty politicians and backstabbing pundits, everyone's itching for a fight.
