My husband said: this story was good but it didn't follow the comic book it followed the recent movie with Halle Berry.

Has a good message, but yet conflicts its own message throughout the book.... Cheesy in parts, but overall really good. Hoorah!

Theres a new Catwoman in towna feline adventuress unlike any youve seen before. Discover all her sizzling secrets as she cracks her whip and sinks her claws into her most petrifying, death-defying adventure yet.

Patience Philips is a shrinking violet, not exactly a career booster at competitive Hedare Beauty, the huge cosmetics corporation where shes a graphic designer. Self-conscious and easily unnerved, she hasnt a chance of escaping detection after she uncovers a dirty little secret in Hedares top-secret research laboratory. Discovery means death, but the real shocker is what happens afterward.

In the blink of a cats eye, the meek designer is gone, replacedthrough an ancient twist of fateby a sleek, self-assured woman with dark, dazzling powers: Catwoman. She has scores to settle, rooftops to roam, and a sinister underworld to prowl, as she stalks her destiny like a feral feline. She also has a good-looking detective on her trail, someone who has fallen for Patience, but is drawn to Catwoman.

As two mighty forces gear up for the ultimate showdown, the fur will fly. . . .
