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 Cat.

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.

In 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?

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.
