Hornet’s Nest book description

The creator of Kay Scarpetta, the most fascinating character in contemporary crime fiction, now cunningly reveals the heart and soul of a metropolitan police department.

With Charlotte as her simmering background, she propels us into the core of the force through the lives of a dynamic trio of heroes: Andy Brazil, an ambitious younger reporter for The Charlotte Observer and an eager – sometimes too eager – volunteer cop; Police Chief Judy Hammer, the professionally strong yet personally troubled guardian of Charlotte’s law and order; and her deputy chief, Virginia West, a genuine head-turner who is married to her job.

To walk the beat with Hammer, West, and Brazil is to learn the inner secrets of police work – the tension and the tedium, the hilarity and the heartbreak, the unexpected pump of adrenaline and the rush of courage that can lead to heroics … or death.
