With a dying detective as her friend and source, Britt Montero probes the long unsolved sex murder of a small girl, which may implicate the front-runner in the governor's race. Britt also follows the trail of a diseased serial rapist who ambushes career women in the restrooms of the gleaming downtown towers that spike the Miami skyline. But soon, it's turnabout; the rapist is trailing Britt. Enraged by her stories, the rapist escalates his violence and focuses his obsession on her. Tensions mount as the stories intersect with edge-of-your-seat suspense and an astonishing conclusion.
Literary Guild selection. "...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." (Publishers Weekly)
"The second Britt Montero thriller traces the footsteps of a serial rapist, whose next target becomes the Cuban-American reporter. This Literary Guild selection is an essential purchase." (Library Journal)

Miami, the Dark Side
Assuming some of the facts stated are true, there is something to learn from the Cuban side of Miami.
All of it. She needs to become some of the characters. If there is no difference in the performance how can interest be peaked if it's read flatly. Sometimes it is read to slowly and ends up dragging a bit. Not a fast paced reading. Actually mot even medium. Doesn't really get out of second gear.
I would say I cried because I bought the first three books in this series thinking it would be the great experience I had when I read them so many years ago, but the first wasn't very good in the series, this one isn't that much better, a little. Well, I hope the next one is better. Maybe a difference more expressive reader.
