PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING REPORTER EDNA BUCHANAN'S GRITTY WORK AS A MIAMI CRIME REPORTER INFORMS THIS ELECTRIFYING AND BONE-CHILLING NOVEL OF SUSPENSE.
A man and a woman are shot dead at a strip club in Miami Beach. A few hours later, an explosion rocks a child's birthday party, killing a father of three. The murders go unsolved and the blast is deemed an accident. Twelve years later, a blonde walks into the Miami Police Department's Cold Case Squad. She's been seeing her husband everywhere she goes. Trouble is, he's been dead for twelve years. Buchanan's crack team of detectives -- a dedicated, complicated crew with problems all their own -- is on the case in this brilliant, edge-of-your-seat read.
Edna Buchanan worked the Miami Herald police beat for eighteen years, during which she won scores of awards, including the Pulitzer Prize and the George Polk Award for Career Achievement in Journalism. Edna attracted international acclaim for her classic true-crime memoirs, The Corpse Has a Familiar Face and Never Let Them See You Cry. Her first novel of suspense, Nobody Lives Forever, was nominated for an Edgar Award.
"An endless carnical of crime."
-- Kirkus Reviews (Starred)
"With dead-on forensic science, police procedural, and human foibles, Edna knows Miami and she knows cops, and there isn't an author who can touch her for sultry and tropical mystery."
-- Ann Rule
