This is a very beautiful book. The art is stunning, and the writing has a believable female tone to it for coming from a man.

Reading this book, I felt that Catwoman had become the perfect female response to James Bond. Very glamorous, very action-packed, and very powerful.

But, the plot failed. In the end, I felt this book was being used to bring in DC Universe cameos more than anything, and if you don't know a lot about Batman, you might find it confusing. It made me yearn for Jim Balent's writing (but not so much his art), where he would keep Catwoman pretty much in her own, non-super world of grit, crime, and intricate networks of criminals.

Not to mention, there were many holes. Like, why did our mystery killer the person he did? How was she getting onto and off of the ship as her alter ego without anyone wondering where Selina Kyle went? It just went on.

But if you want some fun in the tub with a cup of tea and helping of boobs, this book is a quick fix.
