I want more! I loved this book. It grabbed me from the very beginning. Katy Touchfeather is definitely entertaining. The best way I could describe her is, if 007 and Stephanie Plum had a child, it might be her. It wasn't as comedic as Stephanie Plum, nor as serious as 007. She is also very fearless, almost to the point of crazy. It had humor, action, mystery, and everything in between.

Touchfeather opens with a warning from the publisher: 'this book was written in the late 60's and the gender and sexual attitudes of the period are reflected in the story.' This is not just a book set in the 1960's, it was written then and the attitudes may be a little.... off.
Ms Touchfeather is a British spy, but primarily she is an air hostess. She is sent on missions, not to solve problems and shoot opponents, but to be arm candy and hold the attention of the targets until the real 'spies' get they information they need. She works for a variety of airlines, depending on where the mission takes her.
In this initial adventure she is sent to watch over an inventor who appears to be the target of a suspected arms dealer. She falls in love with him, only to have him kidnapped from in front of her. Going off mission, she then pursues the arms dealer, entering her into a world of danger an intrigue.
It's James Bond-esque. With a female. She is not a shrinking violet, but also not a femme fatale. The story is raunchy, but not extremely explicit. Rated M, not R.
Narration by Helen Taylor is very enjoyable. Well paced, clear, and engaging. It is varied, with easily distinguished characters. A joy to listen to.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
