Grade 9 Up Gotham City's sexiest cat burglar returns in a story featuring intrigue, fight scenes, and Catwoman in various stages of undress. While she spends most of the book in Italy, it seems that Gotham City is never far behind. She encounters such regulars as Cheetah, Mr. Freeze, The Scarecrow, and Batman, but questioning whether they are real or imaginary leaves her doubting her sanity. The fact that her meetings with Batman are filled with sexual tension so thick that you can cut it with a claw adds yet another dimension to her troubles. All of these events revolve around the heart of the story, which is that Catwoman goes to Italy both to settle a score with the Falcone crime family and to try to learn the identity of her mother. Bringing The Riddler with her on this trip turns out to be both an inspired choice and more trouble than it's worth. When in Rome takes places chronologically between two Batman stories by the same author/artist team: The Long Halloween (1999) and Dark Victory (2001, both DC Comics). Fans of those titles will definitely appreciate this one, but there is enough backstory included so that it isn't necessary to have read the other books. This page-turning adventure will fly off the shelves. Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library
