Baker & Taylor
The gritty, heroic life of big-city police is seen through the eyes of three leading crimefighters from Charlotte, North Carolina

Blackwell North Amer
The creator of Kay Scarpetta, the most fascinating character in contemporary crime fiction, now cunningly reveals the heart and soul of a metropolitan police department. With Charlotte as her simmering background, she propels us into the core of the force through the lives of a dynamic trio of heroes: Andy Brazil, an ambitious younger reporter for The Charlotte Observer and an eager - sometimes too eager-volunteer cop; Police Chief Judy Hammer, the professionally strong yet personally troubled guardian of Charlotte's law and order; and her deputy chief, Virginia West, a genuine head-turner who is married to her job. To walk the beat with Hammer, West, and Brazil is to learn the inner secrets of police work - the tension and the tedium, the hilarity and the heartbreak, the unexpected pump of adrenaline and the rush of courage that can lead to heroics ... or death.

I simply could not get into the personalities of the 3 characters. A genius reported who supposedly accomplishes everything he sets his mind to but acts like a 5-year old, an acting-deputy chief of police who gets upset because said reported doesn't call to go and do stuff. Overall, the book wasn't very good
