Publisher's Summary

Following in the path of her blockbuster Kay Scarpetta thrillers, Patricia Cornwell's novel is a testimony to the singular versatility and narrative power of one of the country's best-read storytellers. In Southern Cross she casts her shrewd and knowing eye at the men and women in blue, in a story of corruption, scandal, and murder.
Richmond, Virginia, is a city rich in Southern history yet overrun by such modern-day problems as drug trafficking and escalating juvenile crime. Former Charlotte police chief Judy Hammer is brought in to clean up the police force - the most difficult assignment of her career. Now, in the face of overwhelming public scrutiny, she must navigate through local politics and prejudices to solve a brutal murder that springs straight from the rotting core of Richmond's heart.

A Nearly Painful Listen

Prior to going on my vacation, I purchased all three books in this series thinking "Wow, three Patricia Cornwell books! This is going to be good listening." What a mistake! This third book is worse than the previous two books. Shallow characters and ridiculous storylines with little glimpses of some kind of supernatural something or other happening for no apparent reason. If it wasn't for the inclusion of cell phones and the internet references I would think Cornwell wrote this when she was a high schooler. Karen White did a good job narrating this book. I will look for other books she narrates.
