Everything Edna Buchanan writes is great. I suggest that, if possible, you read them in order of original publication date. However; they can be read out of order without losing any thing-you'll just want to go back and read the others.
Excellent account of Edna Buchanan's life as a newspaper writer for the miami herald
My favorite of Edna Buchanan's books. Buchanan is one of the only reporters who has ever won a Pulitzer for crime reporting.
From the front cover:
America's hottest reporter
Miami's most shocking crimes
Edna Buchanan's book is great especially for those who love the media and for those who have been or wish to be reporters. It follows a crime reporter in Miami!
Edna Buchanan is a pulitzer prize winning reporter who writes about true crime in a different respect than other writers. She writes it from her point of view instead of the killer or the investigators. She writes about the father who murdered his comatose toddler in her hospital crib, the fifteen year old boy who killed for fun, the naked man who threw his girlfriend,s severed head to a youg cop who threw it back. This book is certainly written different than other true crime books.
This book made me want to be a journalist. Edna Buchanan is the best!
