Cat has pretty much saved the world more than once (see Cool Cat 1 and 2), but now, at what should have been a routine hit on a drug kingpin, something goes awry and she's badly injured and could have been killed if it wasn't for Aiko, her colleague and getaway driver. Now her physical injuries are quickly dealt with, but her mental scars go deeper, so deep that she takes a time out from Selena's super secret super spy organisation to find herself - and somehow she ends up at a girls' penitentiary in the middle of nowhere, where she's to be phys.ed. teacher to a quintet of "difficult" 16 year olds - girls she quickly takes a liking in, also because they remind her of herself that age. So she trains them to be superfighters, and also manages to persuade the warden (by sleeping with her) to let her take the girls on field trips outside the confines of the prison. It's there the six of them soon discover a secret airfield that's a bit too well-guarded to not house something sinister.

Meanwhile, back at Selena's headquarters, reports are piling up that a baddie only known as "The Colonel" has employed Nazi scientists to develop a drug that will only kill non-whites, in a very ill-guided attempt to snuff out racial tensions. And of course, somehow the airfield Cat and the girls have discovered has to do with this. So Cat returns to her job, the girls are recruited - and it's off to a tiny dictatorship in Central America first where the drug is produced, and where Cat and the girls are quick to destroy facilities - but Cat is abducted by some native tribe and make the centerpiece of some ritual or other. She's rescued of course, but the ritual has given her supernatural powers, powers she has difficulty to control - but powers she'll desparately need when she and her team go against the Colonel and his army ...

If you've read the first two Cool Cat books, you'll pretty much know what to expect, and you sure enough won't be disappointed: This isn't Shakespeare but a loving hommage to the pulps of yesteryear (albeit without their latent racism and misogyny), with lots of violence, beautiful women, fast cars, sex, over-the-top villains and whatnot - pretty much everything that made this stories of old so loveable in a guilty pleasures sort of way. Sytlistically, this book exceeds the style of the earlier entries in the series in terms of being cinematic, it's very descriptory in approach, but also uses cross-cutting between scenes in abundance, and it even adds musical cues for the reader to add a score in one's head (it's fusion, funk and soul on one side vs hard and proto punk rock, all from the 1970s, on the other).

Basically, if you're into pulps of old and/or liked the first two books of the series, you're bound to love this one.
