                  Product Description-Hornet's Nest (Andy Brazil)
 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.

Still pondering., June 16, 2003 By D. Martinez "shockerdm" (Denton, TX USA)
  This review is from: Hornet's Nest (Andy Brazil) (Mass Market Paperback) I was warned about this but I couldn't remember
which title until I was about four pages into the book. It was a great (big)departure from the Scarpetta series that I had gotten
used to. The characters were great in and of themselves. They interacted well. The story was alright but not terrific. I found it
lacking coming from Cornwell but I have to remember that it was NOT a Scarpetta story. As much as it pains me as a woman to
say this, it kept creeping into my mind that Cornwell was having the same hot flashes that West had throughout the book.The
beginning to about 3/5 in was overtly sexual in tone, all the descriptions of persons for one and most characters being either
wildly homosexual or homophobic, then it leapt to kooky when she began telling parts of the story from the point of view of
characters who mattered little and do I have to mention the cat? Then it was back to the heavy sexual tones and interlaced with
kooky feline perspective that was rather distracting and...

A Waste of 8 Hours, August 12, 2005 By Daniel E. Grambihler
  This review is from: Hornet's Nest (Andy Brazil) (Mass Market Paperback) I rarely write book reviews, but I felt compelled to
warn people to steer clear of this book. As many reviewers of this book have stated, this is not a Dr. Kay Scarpetta book. Don't
let that scare you away. It's certainly not the reason why I hated this book.Written differently, this could have been a compelling
book. It had an interesting mix of characters, and a mystery to be solved. And it spent a fair amount of time getting into the
heads of characters. I happen to enjoy that. However, this book was absolutely the most egregious example (and I mean
egregious in the current usage - as in: exceedingly bad) of politically correct stereotypes I could possibly imagine. And the
Southern stereotypes were no better. If this were an episode of "Family Guy" I would have been laughing through the bulk of it.
About the only thing it lacked in that respect were the Duke boys and the General Lee.We learn that women as power figures
are something to be feared and the...

THIS BOOK WAS DOA..., October 20, 2002 By Lawyeraau (Balmoral Castle)
        This review is from: Hornet's Nest (Andy Brazil) (Mass Market Paperback) I have read a number of other Patricia
Cornwell books from her Dr. Kay Scarpetta series. While they have all varied in quality, they usually range from good to
excellent. That is why this book was a complete shock, as it is one of the worst books that I have read in a long time. This book
is not a Dr. Kay Scarpetta series book. Instead, it is a police procedural that focuses on three individuals: Charlotte's stalwart
Police Chief Judy Hammer, her drop dead gorgeous Deputy Chief Virginia West, and Andy Brazil, an intrepid, young news
reporter. Unfortunately, while the premise may have been inspired, the book fails in its execution, with characters that never
quite work, relationships that are far fetched or never quite gel, a plot that lacks focus and fails to capture the reader's
imagination, as well as an excess of mediocre writing in need of serious editing. This audio book also suffers from a painful
reading by noted actor Chris Sarandon, whose performance on this audio book...
