Annotation:
Police chief Judy Hammer, deputy chief Virginia West, and West's love interest, roving reporter Andy Brazil, once again take the stage in this follow-up to HORNET'S NEST. After the death of Hammer's spineless husband, the trio is dispatched to Richmond, Virginia, on a mission to fix the southern metropolis's malfunctioning police department.
Author Bio
Patricia Daniels Cornwell
Patricia Cornwell is no stranger to the morgue. In researching her often violent suspense novels, she ensures authenticity in her work by frequently accompanying medical examiners as they perform autopsies. Also contributing to the accuracy of her novels is her experience working as a crime reporter, and as a records auditor in the Richmond, Virginia medical examiner's office. Cornwell exploded onto the mystery scene in 1990 with "Post Mortem", one of the most critically acclaimed debuts ever, and the first novel to win an Edgar Award, Anthony Award, Macavity Award and the John Creasey Award all in one year. Cornwell's initial inspiration to write came from her close neighbor and friend, Ruth Bell Graham, the wife of evangelist Billy Graham. Cornwell's first book, a biography of Graham, was published in 1983. Ironically the book caused a rift in their relationship, but Cornwell followed it with a series of mysteries that would make her famous and wildly successful.

Praise

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"This most accomplished mystery author has stepped sideways, adding to her mastery of the thriller genre a whole new mode: zany comedy....Make no mistake, SOUTHERN CROSS is every bit as good a read as its darker predecessors in the Cornwell canon....[The] story races along with true comic zest, and in its interlacing of simultaneous plot threads it gives the maestros of farcical plotting a run for their money." - Carey Harrison 02/21/1999
