Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, Edna Buchanan goes deep into Miami's violent underworld, looking at its bloody history, its unsolved murders, its violent, often drug-related crimes. She details the case of the two-and-a-half-year-old boy framed for murder by his mother, the story of a 90-year-old bridegroom who battered his 76-year-old bride to death with a claw hammer on the first night of their honeymoon, and examines the incidence of alarming numbers of missing persons within the city. Also, there are the heroes - a whole family who are, one by one, cut down by cancer. In a city - thanks in large part to "Miami Vice" - life often imitates art, Edna Buchanan has gruesome stories to tell about the murderers, arsonists, burglars and drug lawyers: the Miami Beach policemen, the firefighters and the judges. And most important, the ordinary, decent people who help one another and try to build a better city for their children.
