The green-eyed daughter of a Cuban patriot killed by Castro's firing squad; she has a tender spot for the city's underdogs, but is smart and tough enough to pursue a story no matter where it takes her.

As the city she loves explodes into a major riot, Britt is caught up in life-threatening events that bring about a shocking climax.

What the Critics Say

"A few cartoonish cast members don't diminish the impact of Buchanan's closely observed and affectionately portrayed stars, her extremely likable heroine and Miami at night." (Publishers Weekly)

"Formulaic, but Montero's a charmer and her story seethes with the street-life that her creator knows so well: first-rate entertainment." (Kirkus Reviews)

    "Not a Bad Story"
    If you could sum up Contents Under Pressure in three words, what would they be?

    Heat, Cops, Violence


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Contents Under Pressure?

    Britt running from the Major


    What three words best describe Erin Bennett’s performance?

    Rather Non Descript


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the female office died.


    Any additional comments?

    The reading was just that a reading. No difference in the characters at all. I read the books some years ago and for some reason hearing it read by Erin didn't make much of an impact. Almost like I read a different book. Maybe a stronger reader would help.
