Summary[edit]

From the author: "This happened mostly because I wanted to write a ridonkulous spy/action thing with a Korean-American analog to James Bond... with a cat who is also a human. So this is exactly that, complete with multiple Macguffins and action sequences."

From fail-fandomanon.dreamwidth.org: "Henry is a CIA agent stationed in London, trying to get over the loss of a partner, when he's approached by a mysterious man with intel on a rat in the organisation. This is part spy thriller, with great action scenes, and part clever riff on the story of Puss in Boots."

From pinboard.in: "Henry Lee is an unhappily benched CIA agent. Things change when a cat takes a liking to him, and meets a mysterious man who Henry doesn't know if he can trust or not. Contains: violence and descriptions of injuries sustained, death, ableist language."

From pinboard.in: "Henry is having a rough day...a rough period after the death of his CIA partner and busted ops when a cat decides to adopt him."

From yaoi-hell.tumblr.com: "a spy shaken by recent job-related events meets a strange cat and a man who is even more mysterious than the other spies he knows"

External Reviews[edit]

  • delicious.com: "This is a mix between a spy novel and the Puss in boots!!! And it sounds cracky but it's brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! Seriously, one of those things you're super glad to run accross (and slightly jealous you didn't think of doing it first!) <3"
  • pinboard.in: "Henry Lee is a CIA agent who's trying to recover after losing his lover and colleague in a mission gone wrong, and all he's got to comfort him is a stray cat and a mysterious new source. Good read, shade of Bond mixed in with fairytale magic realism."
