Amazon.co.uk Review
Be aware: this is not your typical Cornwell novel. Not only is there no Kay Scarpetta, but Isle of Dogs is a comic romp, a real departure for this author. It centres around a couple of characters from past books--police chief Judy Hammer and reporter-turned-cop Andy Brazil of Hornet's Nest and Southern Cross--but the plot, style and tone will remind you more of Carl Hiaasen's dark comedies.

The madcap doings get underway when the addled, nearly blind governor of Virginia confusedly launches a speed-trap program on isolated Tangier Island, whose prickly, eccentric residents promptly attempt secession. Cornwell adeptly interweaves other crisscrossing plot lines involving a gang of street-stupid thugs gunning for Hammer and Brazil, an angel-faced serial killer, a kidnapped dog and more. She does miss a few beats: the pacing sags during certain episodes, and at times the writing strains so hard for laughs that instead it draws winces. Nonetheless, Isle of Dogs is for the most part a funny, diverting read and a refreshing departure for Cornwell. --Nicholas H Allison, Amazon.com

It was a nice read. But I’m starting to think that Miss Cornwell just isn’t my style. It was a little hard to finish this one.

Sorry for the delay and thanks for sharing.

Will be on is way somewhere next week.

I found this book quite poor, the story isn't very exciting (except for the Unique character which doesn't lead anywhere) and the plot is barely hanging on. The thing I liked the most were the Trooper Truth essays, although it gets pretty obvious that all the other characters were sleeping on the job or else they would easily found who Trooper Truth was.
An easy read and a no brainer of a book.
Sending it on to ElHurricane today (03.05.2006)
