In this seventh story in the Cats of the CIA set, Buzzer Louis, Cincinnati the dancing pig, Dusty Louise, and the kitten twins--Luigi and Luisa—are dispatched secretly to Moscow to help the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) track down the opium smuggling panda from China, Ar-Chee. You see, Ar-Chee and his sidekick in crime, a portly, multi-lingual porcupine known as Ling Ting Tong, have traveled to Moscow to engage the Russian Mafia as distributors for their contraband from Afghanistan.
In Moscow, our secret agents confront a spy-turned-traitor, turned-patriot named Natasha, who presents an ongoing puzzle for them. With the help of Boris Alexandrovich, head of the FSB, and Vladimir Putin, president of the Russian Federation, our heroes set a trap for the panda. A trap designed by Luigi and Luisa that’s sure to snare Ar-Chee.
In the process of tracking down Ar-Chee, our heroes learn to speak considerable Russian. You will, too, with a 750-word and –phrase vocabulary and pronunciation guide in Russian, built right into the story.
