Another great book by Buchanan. Britt Montero returns not only to solve a murder but to survive a monsterous storm while in the process. Lots of action, a little romance - very readable book.

Britt Montero, crime reporter for a Miami newspaper, is drawn into a web of intrigue and murder when she reports the story of a missing boy. Her story uncovers a series of disappearances of young boys so similar in physical appearance that they could be brothers: tall, slender, fair-haired, and blue-eyed. All vanished without a trace. Against the backdrop of an impending killer storm, Britt investigates the disappearances and inadvertently discovers the existence of a diary written by her father, who was executed in a Cuban jail when she was a child. The diary reportedly names the traitor responsible for her father's death. She soon discovers that anyone who comes to possess the diary is marked for death. As her investigation into the abductions of the boys heats up and she tries to locate her father's diary, the most destructive hurricane in decades heads for the South Florida coast. During a chilling confrontation, the storm hits, shattering lives and revealing long-kept secrets.

Very well structured little mystery about the Cuban community in and around Miami. I say "little mystery" because I feel it is more a novella than a full-blown novel.
