Nobody covers love and lunacy, life and death on Miami's mean streets better than Edna Buchanan, the Miami Herald's legendary police reporter. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Buchanan has seen it all, including over 5000 corpses. Many of them were people she had known.

In THE CORPSE HAD A FAMILIAR FACE, she introduces us to misfits, the disenchanted, the evil, the wronged and the crazies. Her stories are reflections of a dynamic and troubled city in transition.

Counterpoint to the murder and mayhem is the author's own story: a tough New Jersey childhood, her brief marriages, her longtime love affair with Miami and her grueling, fascinating work.

About the Author:

Edna Buchanan commanded the Miami Herald police beat for eighteen years, during which she reported the stories of 3,000 homicides and won scores of awards, including the Pulitzer Prize in 1986 and the 2001 George Polk Award for Career Achievement in Journalism. She attracted international acclaim for her classic true crime memoirs, The Corpse Had a Familiar Face, reissued by Pocket Books in 2004, and Never Let Them See You Cry. Her first novel of suspense, Nobody Lives Forever, was nominated for an Edgar Award.

In 1992, Buchanan introduced Britt Montero, a Cuban-American reporter, in Contents Under Pressure. Montero's adventures in crime continued through eight novels; the most recent was Love Kills, in 2007. Her first entry in the Cold Case Squad series was Cold Case Squad, published in 2004, followed by Shadows. In addition to seventeen books, Buchanan has written numerous short stories, articles, essays, and book reviews. She lives in Miami.
