Edna Buchanan worked the Miami Herald police beat for eighteen years , during which she covered five thousand violent deaths, three thousand of them homicides and 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.
