ABOUT THE BOOK:

In her best-selling novel HORNET’S NEST, Patricia Cornwell displayed her intuitive understanding of policemen and women and introduced her readers to Judy Hammer, Virginia West and Andy Brazil. In this fast-moving sequel she again portrays this trio – sometimes passionate, vulnerable or heroic, always professional.

This time the setting is Richmond, Virginia, and Patricia Cornwell takes us even closer to the personal and public lives of a big city police force where corruption, scandal and robberies escalate into murder. Police Chief Judy Hammer has been hired to clean up the crime rate. Reeling from the recent death of her husband, and resented by her staff and the city’s establishment, she is joined by West and Brazil on the most difficult assignment of her career. In the face of overwhelming public scrutiny the trio must bring order and sanity to a city in trouble.

8 out of 10

I'm a fan of Patricia Cornwell but I've been through a period where I didn't bother with her and I don't think I have picked up any of her more recent books.

I couldn't decide if I had read Southern Cross or not....So I put the book I was reading aside to read this before I set it free! I got a few moments of déjà vu but it must have been a while ago if I had already read it as I couldn't remember the story and it had some memorable characters! I quite like Chief Hammer and her NIJ team.
