I'm halfway thru this book and I'm really struggling to finish it. I really like what I've read so far of the Scarpetta series (I've read the first 4 so far) so I expected this one to be similar. I just can't get past all the weird names. The names make it very distracting and hard to keep up. I just don't feel connected with this book and I'm from the south. I will probably finish this one but not read anymore of this series. I did not read the first of this series so maybe that would have helped although I don't think it would have.

Very different from her usual books. Not sure I would have read any more of her books if I had read this one first.

Not as good as her mystery books with Kay Scarpetta

Not sure if the author intended the book to be a parody of something or a burlesque of police in general.
Having read several of the authors works I frequently felt that there had to be more than one author due to what seemed to be mood swings (on the part of whoever was writing a particular passage) throughout the narrative.
All in all, not a very entertaining or interesting tale with many (as presented by the author[s]) hard to believe characters stumbling in and out of the "story".
With all that said, the tale keeps your attention if for no other reason than to discover more and more outlandish scenarios and characters.

I read all of the Scarpetta books and decided that I'd give the Andy Brazil series a try. I scratched my head when I finished Hornet's Nest. Is she going for slapstick? I liked the characters but the plots were like a comedy wrapped in something I couldn't fathom. Book 2, Southern Cross was even worse than the first. I'll read the 3rd because I'm not a quitter, but I may bang my head against the wall as punishment afterwards.

A slow read, but with good action.
