The number-one bestselling author of Southern Cross delivers an irreverent portrait of politically driven law enforcement run amok with Judy Hammer, newly installed as the superintendent of the Virginia State Police, and trooper Andy Brazil, her right-hand man.
Chaos breaks loose when the governor of Virginia orders that speed traps be painted on all streets and highways, and warns that speeders will be caught by monitoring aircraft flying overhead. But the eccentric island of Tangier, fourteen miles off the coast in Chesapeake Bay, responds by declaring war on its own state.
