Connie R. reviewed Isle of Dogs (Andy Brazil, Bk 3) on
This was truly one of the worst books I have ever tried t read! I pushed myself thru about 3/4 of it and just couldn't finish. I am a fan of Patricia Cornwell's Scarpetta series but this is a joke. Don't waste your time or money.
I love Cornwell, but hated this book. Good for her for trying something new, but this direction just didn't work. Some of the book is written from the perspective of animals, from a dog to a trout. It just didn't work for me. Where is Scarpetta when you need her??
As tightly knit as her other works are, this one wandered all over the place - unable to make up its' mind whether to be comic, mysterious, thrilling. Frankly, it was so loose, for me, it was none of the above. BUT I really DO love all her Kay Scarpetta books!
