After a five-year absence, Buchanan's star character, plucky and feisty Britt Montero, returns to Miami's crime scene with a new case to research, new murders to solve and the ghost of a past love hanging over her. This is more than just a cleverly crafted crime story -- it's an exceptional emotional steam-cleaning for the soul of one woman.
Miami reporter Britt Montero knows it's time to come back from her self-induced exile and return to the job and the city she loves. While she deals with the past and the death of her lover Kendall MacDonald, an old missing-persons case brings her back in contact with the Cold Case Squad and the woman who shared MacDonald's affections.
She's also taking on what appears to be the case of a Black Widower whose brides have never survived their honeymoon, trying to reinstate herself as the prima diva of the police beat and sorting out what the future is going to hold for her as a single mom. (Simon and Schuster, May, 320 pp., $25.00)
