Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Patricia Cornwell turns from forensics to police procedures in her latest novel, Hornet's Nest. This book is less a thriller than a character study of the main characters: Judy Hammer, chief of police in Charlotte, North Carolina; Hammer's deputy, Virginia West; and Andy Brazil, a young reporter assigned to ride with the police as they go about their jobs.

Synopsis:

From the bestselling author of the popular Kay Scarpetta series comes a knowing and wry novels of police procedures in Charlotte, North Carolina and the ironic intersection of everyday lives.

Dr. Kay Scarpetta herself won the 1999 Sherlock Award for the best detective created by an American author.

Cornwell over whelmed me with all of the new characters that she has woven into her story. Her plot is a serial killer, the Black Widow, who focuses on out-of-town businessmen. Cornwell became side tracked with all of the political discord. You wonder when Scarpetta has the time to do her other autopsies. By Ruth Thompson author of “The Bluegrass Dream” and “Natchez Above the River.”
