Unfortunately, I have to disagree with the masses. I didn't think this book measured up to the Scarpetta series at all. I've come to expect more from Patricia Cornwell.

The characters didn't seem to have much chemistry -- they spent the entire book acting like children. I just couldn't relate to Andy Brazil at all. The plot seemed to be developing well but it fell apart near the end. I found myself thinking, "huh? that's it? Really?"

I enjoyed this one quite a bit - at first I was missing the usual Kay Scarpetta, but I quickly got into the storyline.

Unreadable. I don't know what's happened to Cornwell, but she just rides her little hobby-horses through this dull thing with characters about 1/2 inch deep.

If you\'re a fan of the Kay Scarpetta series, it\'s hard not to be disappointed going to Hornet\'s Nest. The writing in the beginning of the book hit me strange, almost non-cornwell. There is very strong character development here, and while the overall story is just okay, there are parts that do shine. Enjoyable but I\'d probably steer a friend toward other Cornwell books.

I'm going to have to agree with a previous reviewer, fans of the Kay Scarpetta series are going to be extremely disappointed. The writing was uneven and the ending, well lets say it left a LOT to be desired. The entire book made me never want to ever visit Charlotte!
