Hornet's NestUnknown - 1996
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.
