/  / Isle of Dogs by Cornwell, Patricia Cornwell, Patricia Amazon.co.uk Review: Be aware: this is not your typical Cornwell novel. Not only is there no Kay Scarpetta, but Isle of Dogs is a comic romp, a real departure for this author. It centres around a couple of characters from past books--police chief Judy Hammer and reporter-turned-cop Andy Brazil of Hornets Nest and Southern Cross--but the plot, style and tone will remind you more of Carl Hiaasens dark comedies.: : The madcap doings get underway when the addled, nearly blind governor of Virginia confusedly launches a speed-trap program on isolated Tangier Island, whose prickly, eccentric residents promptly attempt secession. Cornwell adeptly interweaves other crisscrossing plot lines involving a gang of street-stupid thugs gunning for Hammer and Brazil, an angel-faced serial killer, a kidnapped dog and more. She does miss a few beats: the pacing sags during certain episodes, and at times the writing strains so hard for laughs that instead it draws winces. Nonetheless, Isle of Dogs is for the most part a funny, diverting read and a refreshing departure for Cornwell. --Nicholas H Allison, Amazon.com  --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. : : Elle: A riveting, stay up all night chiller. Hugely enjoyable  --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.Comments: clean  and  good - immediate dispatch- Time Warner  paperback 2002-  532 pages. Format: Paperback. Pages: 544. used books
