Newly installed superintendent of the Virginia State Police, Judy Hammer, and her right hand and confidant, Andy Brazil, are at their wits' end trying to protect the public from the politicians - and vice versa.
And amid the mayhem, an island off the coast of Virginia declares UDI, claiming its independence lies in the history of America's first settlers - those who set sail from London's Isle of Dogs in 1607.

ok. this was the worst Patricia Cornwell ever! The story was stupid and it sounded like something written by a junior high student. HARD TO FINISH. I love Patricia Cornwell usually. And I usually enjoy her medical, forensic and computer info, as well as her characters Marino, Lucy and Kay. Hopefully they will return.
Got rid of Virginia West with no explanation. Trooper truth essays would have had the same affect if they were cut in half. Story was too predictable and a little too goofy for my liking.
Not since the Keystone Cops frolicking across our old black and white have I been so entertained . I am so glad I took advantage of this book despite some poor reviews. If you remember Laurel and Hardy , with a smile, you will love this book. Thank you Ms Cornwall for a great time, and to the narrator , Karen White ,for adding such color. I haven't laughed this much in a long time.
The characters are entirely unrealistic. Long winded speeches/essays, and thoughtless narratives. The story drags on and fizzles in the finale. The three stooges meet the keystone cops.
This is the second in the series and it is not as good as the first, Hornet's Nest. Once again, the characters were not well developed, plot line was weak, and the storylines for the situations and characters were chaotic and at time ridiculous. Karen White did a very good job narrating - she was the best part of an otherwise bad book.
