I have read everything Edna Buchanan has written and know her personally (she gave us one of our many cats).
She was a Pulitzer Prize Winning crime reporter for the Miami Herald before turning to writing books. She started with a couple of non-fictions (one is now out of print). Her main character up to this book has been Brett Montero (a reporter)and a couple of her books have been tv movies.
She said she thinks this is the best she has done so far and I agree. Her new book with the same batch of characters as Cold Case is due out in July.
If you like mysteries you probably will like her stuff.
