Abstract:

With an eye for the absurd & with dead-accurate aim on her targets, #1 NYT bestselling author Patricia Cornwell delivers Isle Of Dogs, a darkly comic portrait of politically driven law enforcement run amok. Chaos breaks loose when the governor of Virginia orders that speed traps be painted on all highways, warning that speeders will be caught by monitoring aircraft flying overhead. But the eccentric Isle of Tangier in the Chesapeake Bay, responds by declaring war on its own state. From the bestselling author of "Hornet's Nest" and "Southern Cross" comes an irreverent portrait of politically driven law enforcement run amok.
