Kitty Goes to Washington (Kitty Norville Series #2) - Kitty is taking her radio show to Washington DCAfter the existence of vampires and weres became more and more unavoidable and more and more well known beyond the fringe, the government has finally had to take notice. Not least of which because there's a government department appropriating funds to investigating paranormal biology.Kitty, as one of the few publicly open and known werewolves, has been called to testify in front of the Senate committee.
