Overview

Hornet's Nest (Andy Brazil Series #1) by Patricia Cornwell

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.

The trick with this and 'Southern Cross', is not to expect a 'Kay Scarpetta' type novel. It is a very funny and also touching story with three superb main characters. It also helps to know that Cornwell gives us a huge insite to her time in collage, (Verginia's character)and her time as a crime reporter in Brazil's character. I found the plot both entertianing and believable and as usual I couldn't put it down till I had finnished it. I can't wait for the third book in the series, 'Isle of Dogs', which I believe is due out in July, 2001.

I usually enjoy her books, can't put them down when I start reading. This is the worse book I have ever read - so boring, couldn't even finish it.

As a huge fan of the Kay Scarpetta series, I have to say I am hugely disappointed by the Judy Hammer/Virginia West/Andy Brazil series. I find myself skimming & skipping through pages of meaningless descriptions and boring dialogue. I read this book and am now trying to get through Southern Cross, but find the series uninteresting and completely anti-climactic.

This book is terrible, what was she thinking when she wrote this? I put it down after the first 100 pages and never will think about it again. I loved her Scarpetta novel's, hated this one. I will not read this series' two follow ups either. What is going on????

This easily the best book Cornwell has ever written. It has interesting characters, and some of the funniest scenes you can imagine. I recommend it highly.

When you read Cornwell's Scarpetta novels you think you are really where the action is. In the first Andy Brazil novel, I kept asking my self: "Is this a Cornwell novel?" The character development of the main character, Andy Brazil, is extremely weak. The plot is almost non-existent. I think she stick with Scarpetta novels and "take Andy Brazil off of the shelf."

Hornet's Nest is action packed. This novel is a very easy read, as the energy and excitement never subside. Much like Patricia's "Scarpetta" series.
