    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. When cops on the midnight shift chase a black motorist, the fleeing man, a professional football hero, winds up dead. Britt's investigation reveals the tragic truth. As the city she loves explodes into a major riot, Britt is caught up in life-threatening events that bring about a shocking climax.

    With a dying detective as her friend and source, Britt Montero probes the long unsolved sex murder of a small girl, which may implicate the front-runner in the governor's race. Britt also follows the trail of a diseased serial rapist who ambushes career women in the restrooms of the gleaming downtown towers that spike the Miami skyline. But soon, it's turnabout; the rapist is trailing Britt. Enraged by her stories, the rapist escalates his violence and focuses his obsession on her.

    Miami, the Dark Side

    Assuming some of the facts stated are true, there is something to learn from the Cuban side of Miami.

    A young mother and child are victims of a fatal daylight hit-and-run by rampaging youths. Britt Montero witnesses the tragedy and relentlessly pursues the story. She befriends a reluctant young gang member surviving alone on the street. But the boy disappears. At the same time evil lurks in the newsroom. A new, ambitious young reporter wants to be a star and covets Britt's job. Friendly at first, Britt begins to suspect that her rival's on-the-spot breaking news stories may not be what they seem.

    Good Story

    Yes, the story was good and had a nice pace. Such an improvement from the first two books.
