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-turn
an irreverant and strikingly characterised portrait of law enforcement at the mercy of politics.
Cornwell's humour is as unexpected as it is wicked.
A unique, often hilarious experience.
