[Read by Karen White]
In this first title of a new mystery series, Cornwell introduces us to a dynamic trio of crime-solvers in Charlotte, North Carolina: Andy Brazil, an eager young reporter; Judy Hammer, the city's police chief; and Virginia West. Hammer's deputy and a genuine head-tumer. They're after a serial killer who pulls male out-of-towners from their rental cars, then multilates, spray paints and shoots them, in that order. What the trio uncovers jolts them like the sting of the hornet -- Charlotte's symbol.

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.About the Author:
