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 uber-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 nd backstabbing pundits, everyone's itching for a fight.

FIRST SENTENCE: (Chapter 1): "We have Beth from Tampa on the line. Hello."
MEMORABLE MOMENT (Page 290): Those words had been spoken by every woman who'd ever been screwed over by a boyfriend. Immortality didn't change some things, apparently.
KEEP IT OR NOT?: Much as I enjoyed this I will be passing in on to a friend who is a huge fan of this genre.
Hmm, not too sure what I was expecting looking at the front of this cover (not too mention the blurb on the back which boldly stated 'werewolves do it better'), perhaps something a bit risque but certainly not this enjoyable supernatural read.
The second book in the Kitty Norville series, I was able to enjoy this as a stand alone read BUT found myself intrigued by some of the references to characters (just who was T.J.?) and events in book 1 - Kitty And The Midnight Hour.
A bit of a slow starter, it wasn't until page 150 or so that anything much really happened but once it did I was totally and completely gripped, Kitty is a novel that is not without thrills and spills but concentrates more on the psychological.
Quite topical in a way, Kitty Goes To Washington obviously looks at the plight of the supernatural 'community' but deals with issues that are not unheard of in many of our communities today.
Full of wonderful characters who proved that there is good and bad amongst all groups, I was totally intrigued and horrified by Elijah Smith, a self-styled faith healer who believed that .....
I don't want to include any spoilers but I will say he put me in mind of the preachers who believe faith is able to cure people of their 'undesirable' conditions - conditions such as homosexuality.
Very exciting and with lots of surprises in store, this is a wonderful read that is quite different from any other werewolf/vampire novel (yes, it has them both)I have read and it is well worth persevering past the first 100 pages.
An ex-library stock read, this is the 51st book read for my 100+ Reading Challenge.
