by Gini Koch
“Koch is in a class by herself when it comes to delivering snort-out-loud humor!”- RT Book Reviews (To Pick)
Kitty Katt-Martini has learned the ins and outs of Washington politics, not to mention how to prevail in intergalactic war and foil any variety of dangerous conspiracies. So when a newly elected Representative is murdered while at the Centaurion Embassy, it’s up to Kitty and the rest of the Diplomatic Corps to find out how and why and stop the killer, before the rest of the U.S. House of Representatives become casualties, particularly the replacement Representative … Jeff Martini.

Sicily, the largest and richest Mediterranean island, a crossroads of traders, Crusaders, conquerors and pilgrims, and a political prize for popes and kings.
In 1281, pilgrims, tradesmen, country folk and crowd Palermo for Holy Week when two murders occur at the Leopard, a neighborhood tavern operated by Amodeus and his sassy wife, Ysabella. Incomprehensibly, Amodeus becomes the prime suspect. As simmering political tensions threaten to plunge the island into war. Ysabella must find the killer before her husband hangs.
