Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

""Like all things good and bad in the world, it began with a woman...""

And so begins the first chapter of Edna Buchanan's "Cold Case Squad," a new suspense novel that features a special homicide unit that breathes new life into old cases.

A man and a woman are shot dead at a strip club in Miami Beach. A few hours later, an explosion in a garage rocks a child's birthday party and burns a father of three to death. The murders go unsolved and the fire is chalked up to an accident.

But was it an accident? Twelve years later, a blonde walks in to the Miami Police Department's Cold Case Squad -- which Buchanan fans will remember from "The Ice Maiden" -- and complains that she's been seeing her husband everywhere she goes. Trouble is, he's been dead for twelve years. In Buchanan's characteristic voice, "Some guys just don't know when to let go."

As the Cold Case Squad unearths the details of the strip club deaths and the dead or missing father -- as well as the unsolved killings of a series of little old ladies -- readers get to know the three cops and their boss: veteran homicide detective Sergeant Craig Burch, whose marriage has turned into a case he can't solve; Detective Sam Stone, for whom the past will always be a mystery; Detective Pete Nazario, airlifted out of Cuba during "Operation Pedro Pan" in the 1960s; and Lieutenant K. C. Riley, for whom one case will never grow cold.

Edna Buchanan has been thrilling readers since her Pulitzer Prize-winning stint as a crime reporter for "The Miami Herald." The "Chicago Tribune" once raved that "few writers can touch Buchanan," to which "The Washington Post Book World" seemed to respond, "I doubt if anyone else is doing it better."In "Cold Case Squad," Edna Buchanan, the woman the "Los Angeles Daily News" calls "the Queen of crime," delivers unlikely killers, near-perfect murders, and her most suspenseful novel yet.
