All over the USA, something is making the youngsters crazy, so much so
that they start killing people indiscriminately before committing suicide.
It might be that they're possessed by Satan, really, and soon a clue that
ties all the killings together is found - the heavy metal band 666. So
Selena, leader of a secret agency, sends her top agent to investigate, and
her top agent is Cat, who's not only among the most beautiful women in the
world, isn't shy to show her naked body, and has a sexual appetite to keep
people happy, she's also the ultimate badass, knows every martial art,
knows how to handle every weapon you can think of, and she's a top driver
on top of that. And Cat is on a mission to attract the attention of the
band, performing at every strip club, fighting at all wrestling events
along the band's tour route - and eventually the band's manager sees her,
hires her and fellow agent Aiko as dancers, and soon develops the hots for
666 though seem to be a dead lead at first, they're not really
Satanists, only use the symbolism in their stage shows, but really are
much more into the rockstar lifestyle of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll - and
letting their manager care about everything else. The manager though is
actually part of a coven of Satanists who have an actual line to Satan.
the meantime, the president of the USA is pretty much clueless about how
to restore order in the country - so he makes the cowardly move and hires
a reactionary preacher as the moral leader of the country, a preacher who
isn't half as good a Christian as he pretends to be.
It might already be
too late though, as it seems Satan has gone to the next level and is now
actively making earth to hell's outpost. And to do so he no longer needs
666 and their manager and turns them all to dust - but he dares not touch
Cat, as it seems she's the "Chosen One" - but Cat is in no mood
to be anybody's chosen one, so she, Selena and her girl soldiers, a Native
American chieftain and his proud warriors, and her war hero turned hippie
uncle Big John decide to make a counter attack - but will they have the
least of an impact in a world that's pretty much in the hands of Satan,
with demons roaming the streets, and the dead returning from the graves as
if it was the natural thing to do?
Feeling lucky ?

Now that much up front, Cool
Cat 2: Hell on Route 666, just like the first book, is not Pulitzer
Prize material, nor will it catch the attention of the judges of the Nobel
Prize commitee, in fact it's a rather blunt and trashy piece of genre
literature, with its roots in (and paying hommage to) yesteryear's pulp
fiction in both books/magazines and the movies - and films from directors
like Roger Corman [Roger Corman
bio - click here] and Russ Meyer (both of whom this book is
dedicated to) readily come to mind. And that's actually the strength of
this book, that it's very unapologetic about its roots, that it very
obviously loves to tell the story the way it's told, and it really stays
in character, doesn't try to put an post-modern spin on what worked
yesteryear. That's not to say that writer Dan Leissner is just a copycat
though, in fact he's a very skilled storyteller and a visual author who
uses detailed descriptions to create the right atmosphere and who edits
between the different subplots in an almost film-like way.
So no, high
literature this is not, but if you're into vintage pulp in whatever media,
then this one's definitely for you.
