MIAMI, IT'S MURDER by former investigative journalist, Edna Buchanan, is the second book in the Britt Montero suspense series. It's another fast-paced compelling read.
This time around, Monterro finds herself delving into a 22 year old unsolved cold case involving the sexual assault and murder of 8- year-old, Mary Beth Rafferty. In addition, she's hot on the trail of a serial rapist who turns his attention on Montero as she writes news articles about the unfolding case.
Thrown into the mix are encounters with her former lover, Ken McDonald, who is now a police lieutenant; a new intriguing man, Captain Curt Norske of the Sea Dancer; and continuing encounters with her arch nemesis, Gretchen Platt, "the assistant city editor from hell."
Buchanan's writing is tight, rapid-fire and, once again, right on target. Glimpses of behind-the-scenes inner workings of a 1990's newsroom are once again evident and make for interesting reading.
I came across Edna Buchanan's writing several years ago, and this a second reading of the Britt Monterro series. The writing is still as fresh, authentic, and fascinating the second time around.
