Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

With this third fictional effort (the second in a series), noted crime journalist Buchanan ( Contents Under Pressure ) liberates her central character from the up-to-now overwhelming presence of her Miami setting. Cuban-born Britt Montero, like her creator, covers the Miami police beat for the local paper, usually keeping one step ahead of the cops, and one step closer to danger. In this twin-plotted tale, Britt investigates a series of increasingly violent rapes and a selection of recent Miami murders, all involving old unsolved police cases. The rapist, who likes to powder his victims, writes to Britt and claims voodoo powers; and a retired, terminally ill cop pal of hers determines to bring to justice a powerful politician whom he is sure is guilty of the murder of a child many years before. Although the identity of one villain is easily guessed and other crimes are solved abruptly, Buchanan's assured, compressed prose deftly balances the chemistry that exists between Montero and Miami. With this novel, Buchanan delivers crime fiction that matches the high level of her Pulitzer prize-winning crime reporting. Literary Guild selection.

From Library Journal

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Buchanan presents Miami crime reporter Britt Montero's second adventure following Contents Under Pressure (Hyperion, 1992). Montero reports the activities of a serial rapist, becoming his target in the process, and investigates a series of deaths of murder suspects whom the police were never able to charge. Buchanan is very good at capturing the flavor of South Florida and Miami, and her experience as a crime reporter makes her characters convincing. Although danger and suspense abound, this title is not as dense or as suspenseful as Montero's first outing; even so, it's a fine addition to the genre. Susan Burr's reading seems a bit upbeat for the material at times, but on the whole she makes a good showing. Recommended for most popular collections.

By Gail Cooke TOP 50 REVIEWER on April 14 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
All Edna Buchanan fans eagerly wait for the return of her ace protagonist, Britt Montero, the Cuban-American classy, sassy reporter who won readers in "Contents Under Pressure".
A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist with the Miami Herald, Buchanan knows of what she writes, and she pens it with thrills, chills, and excitement aplenty. With "Miami, It's Murder," Britt is investigating a series of seemingly unrelated crimes. Now, add a dash of murder which may implicate a contender in the governor's race, athen toss in a soupcon of a maniac who assaults career women in downtown Miami.
The suspense mounts as we whip around the curves of this roller coaster web of clues, mystery, and shenanigans.
Buchanan writes of Miami and mayhem as no one else can. If you're a mystery fan, settle into an easy chair, pick up this sure fire page-turner, and be prepared for an "oh-my-gosh" conclusion.

This book is filled with nonstop action. As one story seems to be resolved, Britt finds herself sliding into another one. And it's handled credibly; it DOES seem like all part of a day's work for our very believable heroine. This is the second book I've read from the series, and I highly recommend it.

This was first reading of this author. It was great. Edna keeps you in suspenders and I like the challenging role she has given BRITT.

I enjoyed this book and her others with her female detective Britt Montero. Always good for a recipe or current styles.
