Charlotte, North Carolina has been dubbed the hornet's nest of America, and with Charlotte as her simmering background, Patricia Cornwell propels us into the lives of a dynamic trio of heroes: Andy Brazil, an ambitious young reporter and volunteer cop; Police Chief Judy Hammer, the strong but troubled guardian of the law; and her deputy chief Virginia West, a ravishing beauty who's married to her job. As we walk the beat with Brazil, Hammer and West, we learn about police work -- the excitement and the tedium -- as Patricia Cornwell strips away the facade of the badge to show what motivates the lives of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances.

I simply could not get into the personalities of the 3 characters. A genius reported who supposedly accomplishes everything he sets his mind to but acts like a 5-year old, an acting-deputy chief of police who gets upset because said reported doesn't call to go and do stuff. Overall, the book wasn't very good
