EDNA BUCHANAN'S MASTERPIECE...TALES THAT ARE AS HOT AS THE MIAMI STREETS SHE COVERED!

For eighteen years, Pulitzer Prize winner Edna Buchanan had one of the most exciting, frightening, and heartbreaking jobs a newspaperwoman could have -- working the police beat for the Miami Herald. Having covered more crimes than most cops, Buchanan garnered a reputation as a savvy, gritty writer with a unique point of view and inimitable style. Updated from its original publication, The Corpse Had a Familiar Face is her classic of street reportage. From cold-blooded murder, to violence in the heat of passion, to the everyday insanity of the city streets, Edna Buchanan reveals it all in her own trademark blend of compassionate reporting, hard-nosed investigation, and wry humor that has made her a legend in the world of journalism.
