    This book is number 4 in the Britt Montero series set in Miami, Florida Britt is the crime beat reporter for the local newspaper When a man approaches her in desperation to research and write a story about his missing 12 year old son she discovers a pattern of similar disappearances through the years.Another theme in the book was about Cuba and Castro with Britt s father having been executed decades earlier by Castro The book seemed pretty outdated written in 1996 considering recent happenings w [...]

    The best in an interesting series Note There is one small spoiler at the end Fans or newcomers will find the backstory of Britt s Cuban family fascinating and moving I have often wished that Edna Buchanan would bring in regarding Britt s colorful family Everything in this novel is Buchanan at her best Top off the story with the storm of the century, and well it just doesn t get any better.As usual, Miami dazzles, thrills and scares the pants off the reader.

    I really liked this book exactly what I was in the mood for But I can t say it was one of the best books I ve ever readIt is a mystery based in Miami with the heroine Britt Montero a newspaper reporter on the police beat The mystery is coupled with cuban politics and a hurricane Britt is half Cuban herself her father was killed in the beginnings of the Castro takeover, so there is a story of her past woven into the ongoing news stories of the dayVery nicely written

    4 in the Britt Montero series.Britt Montero, Miami newspaper reporter, is drawn into the Miami sub culture of Cuban intrigue and hopes to obtain the diary of her father, executed by Castro As she bounces between two opposing factions, she is also trying to trace the fate of missing look alike young teens over the last few years All this as a monster hurricane looms.

    Did you ever wonder why we sometimes don t see what lies right before our very eyes Yet another exploit in reporter Britt Montero s life has her missing the obvious, until it is nearly too late even for her Written by Pulitzer Prize winning reporter, Edna Buchanan, this book makes me wonder how often we blind ourselves to the obvious, or worse, ignore the facts rather than becoming involved.
