Isle of Dogs is New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell’s third book in the new Andy Brazil series. Newly installed superintendent of the Virginia State Police, Judy Hammer, and her right hand and confidant, Andy Brazil, are at their wits’ end trying to protect the public from the politicians—and vice versa. Amid the mayhem, an island off the coast of Virginia declares UDI—claiming its independence lies in the history of America’s first settlers, those who set sail from London’s Isle of Dogs in 1607.

Quotes & Awards

  • Isle of Dogs is a comic romp…a funny, diverting read.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “This wry, witty, and knowing look at the behind-the-scenes turmoil of police departments—and the lives of men and women in blue—once again showcases Cornwell’s darkly comic talents. Those talents may be less familiar to the legions of Kay Scarpetta fans out there, but they are no less powerful.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Move over Carl Hiaasen, you’ve got company. Patricia Cornwell has switched to Hiaasen’s world of black humor and nearly conquers it.”

    San Francisco Examiner

  • A #1 New York Times Bestseller

    " Humorous and sexy. I just had difficulty with how long it took Sky to realize that in trying to please her mother and not live her life for a man, she was actually not living her own life but the one her mother wanted. "

    " Sometimes love happens, especially when you no longer believe in it. What a dreamy thought, don't you think? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 2/15/2012

    " Not bad, for a VERY light read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica | 5/13/2011

    " I think Cornwell should stick to Scarpetta "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzeesg | 5/10/2011

    " I LOVE Patricia Cornwell and have read other Judy Hammer books, but this one, dunno, premise was rather ludicrous and just could not get into it, even after 2 weeks. Very disappointed. I mean, a character with the name of Unique First??? no, doesn't work for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Roland | 5/6/2011

    " Former library book which NOBODY checked out. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Manuela | 3/14/2011

    " Variante sul tema decisamente inutile ed infantile, di cui non sentivamo di certo la mancanza.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 2/28/2011

    " A very good fictional book to lose yourself in on a rainy afternoon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leta | 2/11/2011

    " While I like the historical information, the narrative just seems silly to me. I can't think of Cornwell writing in what seems to me a slapstick humor manner. Disappointing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy | 1/18/2011

    " Although this is considered one of Cornwell's least well-written books, I throughly enjoyed. I lived in the area she described and yes, it is exactly like that. I just don't think you can appreciate it,untill you've dealt with the society she portrays. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathie | 12/29/2010

    " While good, it was a difficult read. Hard to make sense of it most of the time. Had to go back and re-read several times. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Paula | 11/29/2010

    " worst Patricia Cornwell I've read to date "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 11/28/2010

    " Again, not as good as the Scarpetta series, but it is worth reading and is enjoyable! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom | 11/5/2010

    " It was a humorous crime novel, parodying the State of Virginia, its governor, and state police.
    Clever, but a mixed genre I almost quit on twice. Too light. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 David | 10/25/2010

    " If the 421 pages were 42.1 pages the short story would have been interesting and probably enjoyable. The tale wasn't bad. It was just the extra 90% of junk words to make it a sizable & sellable as a novel [the writing was novel]. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Arlene | 10/6/2010

    " Don't bother reading this mystery by Patricia Cornwell. This is just a bad read - no likable or believable charactors, no direction, too many unrelated subplots, etc. There is a feeble attempt of comedy but it bombs. I cannot think of anything good to say about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Georgia | 8/27/2010

    " We listened to this book on a long road trip. I had no idea Patricia Cornwell could be so funny. Completely preposterous and implausible but certainly kept our attention on the long drive. "
