I'd read this before but had forgotten it. The characters are not smart and the plot stretches credulity. You can recognize Buchanan's talent, but this is NOT her best effort. Read full review

This is the first Edna Buchanan book I have ever read and this read kept me reading. I really did enjoy it, I couldn't put it down. I will read another one of her books to see how it turns out. Read full review

About the author (1990)

Edna Rydzik Buchanan was born in 1939 near Paterson, New Jersey. She attended creative writing classes at Montclair State Teacher's College. Buchanan was one of the first female crime reporters in Miami. Her police reporting for the Miami Herald won her a Pulitzer Prize in 1986. In 1979, Buchanan produced her first book, Carr: Five Years of Rape and Murder; From the Personal Account of Robert Frederick Car III. This nonfiction book recounts the story of a convicted rapist and murderer. In 1987, she published her memoirs, The Corpse Had a Familiar Face: Covering Miami, America's Hottest Beat. That book was followed in 1991 by Never Let Them See You Cry: More From Miami's Hottest Beat. Buchanan's crime novels include Nobody Lives Forever and Pulse. She is perhaps best known, however, for her mystery novels featuring a Cuban American crime reporter, Britt Montero. These titles include Contents Under Pressure; Miami, It's Murder; Suitable for Framing; Margin of Error, and Act of Betrayal. She has been a contributor to several magazines, including Fame, Family Circle, Cosmopolitan and Rolling Stone. Buchanan has received awards from the American Bar Association, National Newspaper Association, and the Society of Professional Journalists.
